Gov. John Bel Edwards and Entergy Corp. recently broke ground on Entergy Louisiana LLC’s new 980-megawatt power station in St. Charles Parish, which will provide additional energy more efficiently for Entergy Louisiana’s more than 1 million electric customers.
“Our economy and our way of life in Louisiana rely upon dependable, affordable electricity,” Gov. Edwards said. “Not only is Entergy one of our most important corporate employers, with headquarters in New Orleans, Entergy supplies more power to customers in the state of Louisiana than anyone. After a long, constructive process with our Public Service Commission, Entergy Louisiana is moving forward with this highly efficient power plant project that will benefit customers across the state. We’re excited to support them in providing more power to our people, in a more efficient way than ever before.”
