Entergy Strikes Agreement to Continue Transforming Arkansas Power Generation
Entergy Arkansas reached an agreement with organizations opposed to the use of coal and other fossil fuels to generate electricity that allows the company to secure nearly 50 years’ economic benefit from each of two coal-fired plants in Arkansas. The agreement allows the company to move forward with plans to replace these older generating plants with newer, highly efficient generation resources for Arkansas — a result that allows Entergy Arkansas to continue delivering long-term, cost-effective power to customers. The deal also provides a predictable transition for employees of the plants, a positive economic result for customers and an end to ongoing lawsuits over the use of coal at the plants.
