Entergy Corp. power customers in Louisiana,

Mississippi and Texas are in for something of a double hit this

summer and fall - in their favor.

Entergy Louisiana, Entergy Gulf States Louisiana, Entergy

Mississippi and Entergy Texas will be cutting rates for the third

straight year, likely between June and December - at the expense of

Entergy Arkansas.

That's the result of a decision by the Federal Energy Regulatory

Commission in 2005 dealing with New Orleans-based Entergy's system

agreement between its regulated power units in the four states.

FERC ruled that Entergy Arkansas customers did not pay a fair share

of the cost of generating power.
