Taking New Orleans to the forefront of cities powered by renewable energy, Entergy New Orleans is moving forward on a portfolio of proposals that will add 90 megawatts of solar energy to its already clean energy mix. The company has narrowed the group down to three viable projects, which were approved by the New Orleans City Council last month. These are a 20 MW solar facility to be constructed by Entergy on approximately 100 acres of flood-protected property at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans East, a 50 MW power purchase agreement from a solar facility to be constructed on LSU AgCenter land in Washington Parish, and a 20 MW power purchase agreement from a solar facility to be constructed on land in St. James Parish.
In another move to harness the power of the sun where empty commercial rooftops once stood, Entergy New Orleans and the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority have reached agreement to install solar panels on the roof of the agency’s Carrollton Streetcar Barn. The 300-kilowatt system will feed directly onto the Entergy New Orleans electric distribution grid for the benefit of all customers, and is part of Entergy New Orleans’ 5-megawatt commercial-scale rooftop solar project, which was approved by the New Orleans City Council last year.
