The Arkansas Public Service Commission has approved a new utility-scale solar project that will provide Entergy Arkansas customers with 100 megawatts of solar power.
Construction has begun on a 20-megawatt solar plant on approximately 90 acres of flood-protected property at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans East.
Entergy Mississippi, Recurrent Energy partner to produce 100MW of renewable energy
Entergy New Orleans is committed to building partnerships with the community we serve. Recently, plans were finalized with the University of New Orleans for a solar installation, atop two buildings at the University, that will add 600-Kilowatts of clean energy to the New Orleans’ grid.
A subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources (NYSE: NEE) and Entergy Arkansas (NYSE: ETR) today announced the start of construction of Arkansas’ largest universal, utility-scale solar energy project – the Chicot Solar Energy Center. The Chicot Solar Energy Center, when complete, will be bigger than the Stuttgart Solar Energy Center, which came online in 2018 as the state’s largest universal solar energy project at that time.
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.
Entergy Arkansas, LLC, and NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy, Inc. announced today plans to build a 100-megawatt solar energy facility in White County near Searcy.
Entergy New Orleans is piloting a new program that puts solar panels on the rooftops of low-income customers’ homes and gives them a $30 credit on their energy bills every month, rain or shine. The Residential Rooftop Solar Program is a simple and straightforward way for New Orleans customers in need to participate in the benefits of distributed renewable energy.
