Crews successfully restore power to all customers, energy efficiency tips
Entergy Texas successfully restored all customers following extreme cold temperatures and gusty winds that impacted the region this week and into the weekend. Crews continue to monitor weather conditions and remain on standby to respond to any unforeseen circumstances.
We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience, especially during the holidays. Entergy continually reviews its data and processes and has identified ways to be more prepared for prolonged freezes. Read more on our winter preparedness.
Practice energy efficiency to avoid interruptions with your electricity by following these tips:
- Unplug electronic devices and turn off lights that are not in use. As much as 10 percent of residential electricity use goes toward powering appliances in standby power mode.
- Hold off on doing chores. Delay laundry, washing dishes and other non-essential uses of electricity.
- If you have all electric appliances, washing clothes with cold water, shower quickly instead of taking a bath, cooking foods at the lowest possible setting and refraining from opening the oven door while baking.
