|Public Notices Published Tuesday, July 27th, 2010NOTICE|
NOTICE is hereby given, pursuant to article IV, section 21 (D) (1) of the Louisiana Constitution, that on July 21, 2010, Entergy Louisiana, LLC ("ELL") an electric public utility providing retail electric service to customers in forty-three (43) Parishes of the State of Louisiana, filed with the Louisiana Public Service Commission ("LPSC" or the "Commission") in LPSC Docket No. U-30981, pursuant to Article IV, Section 21(D)(3) of the Louisiana Constitution and Title 45, Section 1163.1 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes, a new Rider Financed Storm Cost II ("FSC II") rider schedule, and a new Rider Storm Cost Offset II ("SCO II") rider schedule, that implement, effective the first billing cycle of August (July 30) various rate changes for recovery in rates of costs related to Hurricanes Gustav and Ike financed pursuant to Act 55 of the Louisiana Legislature's Regular Session of 2007.
In order to pursue financing authorized by Act No. 55, ELL and the Louisiana Utilities Restoration Corporation ("LURC" or "Corporation") have received pursuant to LPSC Order U-30981-A: (1) approval and authorization for the LURC to finance, through the issuance of "system restoration bonds" by the Louisiana Local Government Environmental Facilities and Community Development Authority (the "LCDA"), a non-shareholder contribution to ELL's capital; (2) approval to create system restoration property in favor solely of the Corporation, including the right to impose and collect system restoration charges sufficient to pay the system restoration bonds and associated financing costs; and (3) approval of a tariff to implement the system restoration charges on behalf of the Corporation. Further, the Corporation and ELL have received Commission authorization for the issuance of system restoration bonds in one or more series in an aggregate principal amount equal to the sum of: (a) $260,729,711 of system restoration costs, plus (b) the costs of funding storm damage reserves in the amount of $200,000,000 in a restricted escrow account, plus (c) issuance costs of $8,170,289. When rounded, these components result in a total issuance of $468,900,000.
To finance these costs, ELL will implement Rider Financed Storm Cost II (Rider "FSC II") Rates, on behalf of LURC, effective by billing on the first day of the first billing cycle of the next revenue month following the issuance date of the system restoration bonds. Based upon a system restoration bond issuance date of July 22, 2010, Rider FSC II will be implemented with the first billing cycle of August 2010 (July 30). The FSC II Rates, as periodically adjusted, will continue in effect until all system restoration bonds shall have been paid in full and all financing costs of the system restoration bonds shall have been recovered in full. Consistent with the LPSC's determination in Order Nos. U-30981 and U-30981-A, the calculation of the FSC II Rates will apply to all rate classes, including the Special Contracted Rate customers and will be non-bypassable, which means that, with limited exception, all existing and future LPSC-jurisdictional ELL customers will be responsible for these charges.
Any insurance proceeds or governmental grants or aid reflecting permanent recovery of system restoration costs received after issuance of the Financing Order, together with any interest earnings associated with those insurance proceeds or governmental grants or aid reflecting permanent recovery of system restoration costs received after the issuance of the Financing Order will be returned to customers of ELL through the Rider Storm Cost Offset II (Rider "SCO II"). Other adjustments required to compensate for certain costs or benefits relating to elements other than those relating to the financing transaction, including accumulated deferred income taxes and other savings pursuant to Act 55 Financing as provided for in Order U-30981-C, will be reflected in the Rider SCO II.
Using the method of allocation and rate design approved by the LPSC, the system restoration charge, billed on behalf of the LURC, on the monthly electric bill through Rider FSC II for one of ELL's LPSC-jurisdictional residential customers using 1,000 kWh will be $2.91 per month. The system restoration charge, billed on behalf of the LURC, on the monthly electric bill through Rider FSC II for one of ELL's LPSC-jurisdictional Small General Service customers using 12,500 kWh will be $41.56 per month and for one of ELL's LPSC-jurisdictional Large General Service customers using 1000 kW and 500,000 kWh will be $944.39 per month. Rider SCO II imposed on the monthly electric bill of one of ELL's LPSC-jurisdictional residential customers using 1,000 kWh will be a credit of $1.06 per month. Rider SCO II imposed on the monthly electric bill of one of ELL's LPSC-jurisdictional Small General Service customers using 12,500 kWh will be a credit of $15.12 per month. Rider SCO II imposed on the monthly bill of one of ELL's LPSC-jurisdictional Large General Service customers using 1000 kW and 500,000 kWh will be a credit of $343.46 per month.
In sum, beginning with the first billing cycle of August (July 30) the total net effect of Riders FSC II and SCO II to an ELL LPSC-jurisdictional residential customer using 1,000 kWh will be an increase of $1.85 per month. The total net effect of Riders FSC II and SCO II to an ELL LPSC-jurisdictional Small General Service customer using 12,500 kWh will be an increase of $26.45 per month. The total net effect of Riders FSC II and SCO II to an ELL LPSC-jurisdictional General Service customer using 1000 kW and 500,000 kWh will be an increase of $600.93 per month.
A copy of these rider schedules may be viewed in the Office of the Louisiana Public Service Commission in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

WHEREAS, prior to the issuance of the Bonds, the Issuer intends to expend its own funds for the purpose of acquiring, constructing and equipping certain portions of the Project, and reasonably expects to reimburse said expenditures from the proceeds of the Bonds; and

BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Commissioners, as the Governing Authority of the Issuer, that:
SECTION 1. For the purpose of providing funds to finance the cost of the Project and to pay the costs of issuance of the Bonds, this Governing Authority hereby gives approval to the issuance of not to exceed $200,000 of its Revenue Bonds, in one or more series.

The Bonds shall be issued under the authority of the Act and other constitutional and statutory authority supplemental thereto. The acceptance of an offer for sale of the Bonds and the further details of the Bonds shall be established by a Bond Resolution to be adopted by this Governing Authority.
SECTION 4.
