The proposed New Orleans Power Station has undergone intense scrutiny through 23 public meetings and comprehensive review by experts. It has earned the New Orleans City Council Utility Committee’s support.
Back in February, I sent an email explaining that the proposed New Orleans Power Station proceeding before the City Council was temporarily suspended at the request of Entergy New Orleans due to a recently updated forecast of future energy needs in our city.
Entergy New Orleans recently filed an unopposed request to temporarily suspend the schedule in the proposed New Orleans Power Station proceeding before the New Orleans City Council. That request was granted by the judge in the proceeding, and he has scheduled a status conference with all of the parties on March 6, 2017 to discuss next steps.
To meet the power demands of a growing New Orleans, Entergy must upgrade the Michoud plant in New Orleans East to a modern, more-efficient facility.
