Notice is hereby given, pursuant to Article IV, Section 21(D)(1) of the Louisiana Constitution, that on December 18, 2018, Entergy Louisiana, LLC (“ELL”), a public utility providing retail electric and gas service throughout the State of Louisiana, filed with the Louisiana Public Service Commission (“LPSC”) a compliance update to its Formula Rate Plan (“FRP”) Rider Schedule FRP Evaluation Report and Workpapers for Test Year 2017. This update reflects the updated TRAM amount for year two of the Unprotected ADIT give-back and will take effect with the first billing cycle of January 2019.

The updated TRAM revenue requirement will be ($198,543,286), a change from ($318,281,641). This translates into less of a reduction than the initial phase of the reduction, such that the updated total FRP rate for Legacy ELL will be 31.0893%, up from 23.4847%. This represents an increase of $3.47 per month for a typical Legacy ELL residential customer using 1,000 kWh. The total FRP rate for Legacy EGSL will be 28.9424%, up from 21.3378%, which represents a typical bill increase of $3.45 per month. It should be noted that customers will continue to save $1.27 per month due to the give-back of Excess Unprotected ADIT.

For questions and comments regarding ELL’s filing, please call the LPSC toll free at (800) 256-2397. Additionally, the filing, including its attachments may be viewed in the Records Division of the LPSC at the following address:
