City Council Decision on this Record Expected Soon
NEW ORLEANS, LA – As the City Council draws near to making a decision on whether Entergy’s application to build a new gas plant would be in the public interest, the evidentiary record confirms major problems with Entergy’s proposal. Entergy makes public claims promoting the gas plant that do not match the admissions of Entergy CEO Charles Rice and other officials under oath during the recent evidentiary hearing on the gas plant. The transcript of this evidentiary hearing can be viewed here.

Today, the City Council of New Orleans (“Council”) stands at a crossroads. One path, the path proposed by Entergy New Orleans (“ENO” or “the Company”), is old, worn, and well past its usefulness. Essentially, ENO wants New Orleans to remain mired in the past, to build yet another fossil-fueled power plant that is unnecessary, will cost New Orleans ratepayers millions of dollars, will subject residents to increased levels of air pollution, and contribute to climate change.
