We take the health, safety and security of our customers and communities very seriously. One way we do that is by providing safe, reliable and affordable power. Know that we are here for you during this unprecedented time.

We recognize that many people who don’t normally need help are struggling now because of the pandemic. We have compiled resources below that may be helpful to you. Please don’t assume this is a complete list; there may be additional services available in your community.


Watch out for ScamsThere are many helpful resources available, but please remain attentive to information you receive and don’t fall victim to scams. Always go to trusted sources of information such as official websites or social media accounts for federal, state and local government for instructions and information specific to your community.  Entergy Texas never demands immediate payment from customers over the phone.
