The ~$28 million investment helps strengthen the electrical grid in Southeast Texas.
Entergy Louisiana representatives, local officials and community leaders gathered today in Broussard to celebrate the opening of a new operations hub aimed at providing exceptional electric service to Acadiana customers.
