Entergy Louisiana, LLC Key Developments

Entergy Louisiana, LLC Receives Approval from Louisiana Public Service Commission to Build New Natural Gas-Fired, Combined-Cycle Power Plant in St. Charles Parish

Entergy Louisiana, LLC received approval from the Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC) to build a new natural gas-fired, combined-cycle power plant in St. Charles Parish. The LPSC vote clears the way for Entergy Louisiana to move forward with construction on the 980-megawatt unit in Montz, approximately 30 miles from New Orleans. Scheduled to be in service by June 2019, the plant will cost approximately $869 million to build including transmission and other project-related costs. The highly efficient plant will be one of the cleanest fossil fuel-fired units in Entergy Louisiana's generation fleet. Because of the plant's high efficiency, it is projected that customers will save more than $1.3 billion over the anticipated 30-year life of the unit. Customer savings are projected to exceed the project's construction cost in less than 10 years. The plant's construction phase will generate on average an estimated 2,000 direct and indirect jobs a year across the state. Entergy Louisiana will employ approximately 27 people to operate the plant.

Entergy Louisiana to Provide 75 Megawatts of Power to Two Chemical Plants

Entergy Louisiana, LLC has entered into two agreements to supply power to LACC, LLC and Lotte Chemical Louisiana LLC facilities in southwest Louisiana. Under the contract, Entergy Louisiana could supply up to 30 megawatts of power monthly to LACC's ethylene cracker facility, as well as 45 megawatts of power to Lotte's mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) plant. Both chemical plants will be located on the same piece of property in Lake Charles. According to Louisiana Economic Development (LED) the projects will create 215 new direct jobs, with the ethane cracker producing 135 new direct jobs with an average annual salary of $75,500, plus benefits. The MEG facility is expected to produce 80 new direct jobs with an average annual salary of $87,000, plus benefits. LED estimates the combined projects will result in 1,892 new indirect jobs, for a total of more than 2,100 new jobs in Southwest Louisiana. In addition, Axiall will retain 1,600 existing workers in the Lake Charles area, and the company estimates 2,000 construction jobs will be created at peak building activity for the new plants. The latest contracts emphasize Entergy's ongoing execution of its business strategy to grow the utility by investing capital in ways that benefit customers, including meeting economic development and other growth needs.
