Entergy Louisiana announced earlier this week the suspension of all disconnections for the duration of Governor John Bel Edwards' declared heat emergency through September 9.

This means that no accounts will be disconnected for non-payment while the emergency remains in effect.

The company said they will continue to work closely with the Louisiana Public Service Commission to monitor updates from the National Weather Service to determine if an additional suspension period beyond September 9 is necessary.

But, at minimum, Entergy will continue suspending disconnects during National Weather Service's excessive heat advisories.
