Entergy Ark. president: Customers can expect to bear cost of repairs after Christmas snowstorm | News
Entergy Arkansas customers can expect to bear the cost of repairs after a Christmas snowstorm damaged the state's power grid.
Entergy Arkansas' president, Hugh McDonald, said the utility has $15 million built into its rates annually to cover storm damage, according to the Associated Press.
Costs in excess of that can be passed onto customers with the Public Service Commission's permission.
So far, officials are estimating the storm caused tens of millions of dollars of damage.
More than 260,000 homes and businesses were without power for at least part of the last week.
That number is down to 50,000 as of Saturday night.
