 Major Objectives

Our focus on poverty reduction is rooted in the economic reality of the region we serve. Communities served by Entergy rank among the lowest in household income (AR 50, LA 48, MS 47 and TX 43). Between 20 and 30 percent of our customers live at or below the poverty line. As a business we must be concerned with the issues that impact our customers. As neighbors we have a social obligation to take a stand. It's simply the right thing to do.
