For the 12th year in a row, Entergy has been named one of the nation’s top utilities in economic development by Site Selection magazine. The award is due in large part to the vital role the company plays in economic development efforts across its four-state service territory of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
Entergy’s Louisiana utilities are sending a team of more than 200 employees and contractors to the East Coast to help restore power following anticipated widespread damage by Hurricane Dorian.
This fall, 13 Louisiana high school graduates will attend college with a little help from Entergy's Community Power Scholarship program. The children of Entergy employees in Louisiana each received $5,000 in recognition of their community service, academic achievements, leadership and work experience.
Construction has begun on one of the largest solar facilities currently planned for Louisiana. Capital Region Solar, a 50-megawatt solar plant being built by DEPCOM Power in West Baton Rouge Parish, will add another source of renewable energy for Entergy Louisiana customers.
Power has been knocked out to approximately 58,000 customers as of 10:30 a.m. Saturday as Hurricane Barry moves over the Louisiana coast.
Entergy’s Louisiana utilities continue to monitor Tropical Storm Barry and are preparing for potential impact to the state. A team of more than 1200 crew members have been assembled to respond to the storm, and an additional 770 workers from other neighboring Entergy utilities have been mobilized to assist with restoration in Louisiana. Entergy also can call in additional crews to assist pending the path and intensity of the storm.
Entergy Louisiana continues to monitor the disturbance located off the coast of Florida as it moves toward the central Gulf of Mexico. Though the storm is currently poorly organized, Entergy Louisiana is prepared for the possibility that this weather system could bring severe thunderstorms, strong winds, heavy rains, higher tides and coastal flooding to the state.
