Ida Knocks Out Transmission Sources into New Orleans
- As a result of Hurricane Ida’s catastrophic intensity, all eight transmission lines that deliver power into the New Orleans area are currently out of service. When this occurred, it caused a load imbalance in the area and resulted in generation in the area coming offline.
- We are currently working to assess damage and identify a path forward to restore power, to those who can take it, in the area.
- We have provided back-up generation to the New Orleans Sewerage and Water Board.
Power will not be restored this evening, but we will continue work to remedy.
