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.
Pursuant to the City Council of New Orleans Resolution R-17-426, the Alliance for Affordable Energy, Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, 350 – New Orleans, and Sierra Club (collectively, “the Public Interest Intervenors”) have submitted this Post-Hearing Brief.
Based on the evidence and record from the Evidentiary Hearing, as set forth below, the Public Interest Intervenors request the City Council of New Orleans deny the Application of Entergy New Orleans, Inc. (“ENO” or the “Company”) for Approval to Construct New Orleans Power Station and Request for Cost Recovery and Timely Relief.
