Show us the receipts! Does Entergy's and the Council Advisors' claim of $96 million hold up in the light of day?
February 19, 2019, New Orleans, LA -- Earlier today, Susan Miller, counsel for the Alliance for Affordable Energy, as well as organizations and residents opposed to Entergy's gas plant, sent a letter to the New Orleans City Council in response to Council concerns. Groups are calling for the Council to initiate a public prudence review concerning Entergy's request for $96 million from New Orleans residents and businesses.
Entergy cannot simply wave a fist full of invoices at the City Council and be found to be entitled to ratepayer reimbursement for the expenditures!
Entergy is trying to force New Orleans to pay $96 Million for their work on a gas plant that hasn't even been built yet. This letter outlines the legal authority the New Orleans City Council has as a regulator to protect New Orleans residents and businesses from Entergy's wasteful spending.
Who is on the hook for the money Entergy irresponsibly spent? Entergy's shareholders, not New Orleans.
