Entergy Mississippi’s contributions to achieving Entergy’s overall sustainability goals have been vital. Over the past two decades, Entergy Mississippi has significantly reduced carbon emissions through fleet modernization; and since 1985, Grand Gulf Nuclear Station has added safe, carbon-free energy to the grid while affordably generating around 20% of Mississippi’s electricity.
Entergy Mississippi turned on Sunflower Solar Station—the largest renewable energy-generating site in the state—in late 2022 and it now produces enough power for 16,000 homes.
The Sunflower Solar Station is the first plant in what will eventually be the most significant expansion of renewable power in the state’s history, according to Fisackerly.
At Entergy Mississippi we think a lot about the future. Why? Because we are not only tasked by the State of Mississippi with providing you power today, but also with having plans in place to ensure you have safe, reliable and affordable power years from now.
As the year draws to a close, our thoughts turn to all things merry and bright as we remember the past and look forward to a new year filled with hope and promise.
All three sites are now online and generating power!
We believe our customers should have the choice to self-generate electricity from renewable resources, as well as the ability to provide excess energy to the distribution grid, just as they do today.
