Arkansas Regulators Suspend Entergy Rate Cut to Review Equity

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas Public Service Commission has suspended a $5.67 million cut in Entergy Arkansas's base rates.  The panel voted for the suspension yesterday so regulators can review how the rate cut is spread among the utility's customers.

The rate cut was ordered by the panel last month, when the commission rejected Entergy's request for a $106.5 million rate increase and instead ordered the decrease.  Entergy has since asked for a new hearing on the base rate-hike request.
