Highest level of winter usage ever recorded across Entergy’s system
The aerial saw provides a safe and efficient tool for crews to maintain vegetation around power transmission and distribution systems.
Entergy Mississippi’s electric transmission system is a lot like a superhero—a sprawling, tireless giant equipped to move massive amounts of power for long distances over land and water at the speed of light.
These high-voltage lines and the structures holding them are a crucial part of the grid, so maintaining them is an essential part of Entergy Mississippi’s work. Wooden poles were once the standard material for transmission structures. However, today steel and concrete poles are preferred for reliability.
When Entergy Mississippi crews installed a high-voltage clean air circuit breaker at one of our Vicksburg, Mississippi substations late last year, two companies reached milestones.
Our crews continue to make steady progress on this important project.
Within one year after Hurricane Ida, Entergy rebuilds a Mississippi River crossing using an unprecedented 175-mph wind loading criteria.
Leo Denault recently sat down with Grid Talk podcast to discuss how Entergy's recent infrastructure investments are working well and grid resilience is already underway for the Entergy region.
