Algiers electricity bills are set to soar.
A New Orleans City council committee has approved a resolution to hike the rates by 31 percent over the next four years. The council’s utility advisers reached an agreement in principle with officials of Entergy Louisiana.
The New Orleans Advocate is reporting the deal also directs the company to transfer Algiers service to Entergy New Orleans.
Entergy Louisiana serves about 22,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers in Algiers.
