Entergy New Orleans, Inc. filed an application with the New Orleans City Council today seeking approval to construct a modern, efficient electric generating facility, referred to as the New Orleans Power Station.
The Louisiana Public Service Commission voted today to approve construction of the Lake Charles Power Station, a 994-megawatt combined-cycle power plant in Westlake. The natural gas-fired plant is a key element of Entergy Louisiana’s plan to provide the clean, efficient energy needed to power economic growth and bring even more savings to its customers.
Building upon the $10 million spend in the city last fall to improve service reliability, Entergy New Orleans is spending an additional $30 million on further improvements over the next two years that will help make the electrical system stronger and more resilient.
