Sierra Club allowed to participate in Entergy rate case

Posted By on Wed, Jul 8, 2015 at 1:36 PM

Good news from the Arkansas Public Service Commission: It will allow the Sierra Club to intervene in a pending Entergy rate case. Among others, both Entergy and the Arkansas attorney general's office, now more of an advocate for business interests than ratepayers, had objected.

Said Chapter director Glenn Hooks:

"We are very pleased that the PSC has allowed us to participate and has rejected the challenge from Attorney General Rutledge and others. Sierra Club routinely seeks to promote sound environmental and energy policy in Arkansas on behalf of our members before utility commissions. It is unfortunate that our Attorney General sought to block Arkansas citizens from participating in a public process, but we are grateful that the PSC sided with Sierra Club today. We look forward to the process."
