Entergy Texas, Inc. Residential Security Deposits
Entergy Texas customers use electrical service before paying for it. Each
month’s bill reflects usage during the previous month. For this reason, new
customers may be required to make a refundable security deposit, which helps
protect Entergy and its customers from those who use electricity and then
leave without paying for it. Because such losses affect all of our customers,
the security deposit helps us keep everyone’s costs down.
Deposit Requirements – Customers have the option to pay all or part of the
initial deposit before the first bill, but the initial deposit must be paid in
full by first bill due date.
Arrangements can not be made on a billed initial deposit.
