At Entergy Arkansas, we take the health, safety and security of our customers and communities very seriously during normal circumstances but especially during a pandemic. By providing safe, reliable and affordable power, we can ensure our communities have more of the resources they need to continue their normal routines and address their needs.

Entergy Arkansas began disconnections for nonpayment due to COVID-19 beginning May 30 with direction from the Arkansas Public Service Commission, and Gov. Asa Hutchinson declared the state of emergency ended Sept. 27. As of Oct. 1, Entergy Arkansas will resume all normal disconnections as a result of nonpayment, along with late and reconnection fees.

If you cannot pay your bill in full, please contact Entergy at 1-800-ENTERGY (1-800-368-3749) for assistance with payment arrangements to ensure continued service. This can also be done through myEntergy or the app, which is available for Apple and Android operating systems.

There are also additional bill payment assistance programs available. The federally funded Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps low-income households meet their home energy costs by making payments on a customer’s behalf directly to energy suppliers. The Power to Care, an Entergy Arkansas program, helps senior citizens and customers with disabilities pay their utility bills. Other flexible payment options such as level billing and pick-a-date can be found at
