Entergy New Orleans Announces Dates For Summer Public Information Sessions On New Orleans Power Station

Charles Rice, president and CEO of Entergy New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS – Entergy New Orleans is hosting information sessions in July, August and September to keep the community fully informed about the proposal for a modern, efficient and reliable electric generating facility, referred to as the New Orleans Power Station, reps said.

         Charles Rice, president and CEO of Entergy New Orleans, will present the latest information on the proposed New Orleans Power Station. Rice and other experts will answer questions from the public during the sessions.

         The company’s current application filed this month renews the request for approval of the 226-megawatt combustion turbine and also presents an alternative proposal for its existing Michoud plant site in an industrial area on the eastern edge of New Orleans. In the alternative proposal, a 128-megawatt unit composed of natural gas-fired reciprocating engines would be constructed instead of the 226-megawatt combustion turbine.
