Entergy Mississippi, Inc. Key Developments

Entergy Mississippi, Inc. Appoints Ed Gardner as Director of Business and Economic Development

Entergy Mississippi, Inc. has appointed Ed Gardner as director of business and economic development. In his previous role, Gardner worked with local, regional and state economic development organizations in support of business attraction, expansion, retention and overall economic growth for the region. He previously held economic development jobs with the Birmingham Business Alliance in Birmingham, Alabama; the City of Auburn, Alabama and the St. Clair County Economic Development Council in Pell City, Alabama.

Entergy Mississippi Begins Second Phase of Solar Project in DeSoto County

Entergy Mississippi, Inc. has begun construction on the second phase of its Bright Future solar project in DeSoto County. The installations are the first-ever utility-owned solar projects in Mississippi. The fixed-tilt solar array will produce 500 kilowatts of electricity once up and running, and will help Entergy answer some of the many questions about solar while giving customers access to this renewable energy source. The project, at an approximate cost of less than $5 million for all three sites, is a collaborative effort with Stion Corporation, which manufactures solar panels in Hattiesburg. Construction on the first solar array, a ground-mounted system that tracks the sun's movement throughout the day, began in June at Entergy's Hinds Generating Facility in Jackson. A third fixed-tilt solar array will be built in Lincoln County. Combined, the three sites will provide 1,500 kilowatts of electricity (500 kW each), which is enough to power the equivalent of 175 homes. All three sites are expected to be operational before the end of the year. The projects will include real-time data monitoring that will be linked to Entergy Mississippi's website for all to view.

Entergy Mississippi Breaks Ground on New Transmission Operations Center in Jackson

Entergy Mississippi, Inc. has broken ground on a new $23 million transmission operations center in Jackson, Mississippi. The transmission operations center will be one of two twin centers in the corporation's four-state service area. The 24,775-square-foot building will be a 'nerve center' where employees monitor the status of the transmission system, coordinate line outages for maintenance or repair and remotely operate switches and breakers at substations. The new centers will also be hardened to withstand F5 tornadoes. Consolidating the facilities will also result in significant savings, as maintaining two facilities costs less than maintaining six. The buildings are scheduled to be complete in summer 2016.
