WVUE Fox 8: Entergy says bills expected to stay lower than last year despite summer’s brutal heat
Pierre Conner, professor of practice in management science and executive director of the Tulane Energy Institute, was interviewed by WVUE Fox 8 News for a story about Entergy’s announcement that utility bills in Louisiana this summer are down significantly from last year. In a letter to customers, Entergy said bills were lower due to a 50% drop in natural gas prices.
“We’re down to prices that we haven’t seen since 2020,” said Pierre Conner, executive director of the Tulane Energy Institute. “The natural gas demand for power production flows through to the consumer via fuel surchanges. With weaker demand in the winter — more mild weather — we were able to refill our inventory, so we saw a little bit higher inventory levels and lower prices.”
