Entergy Louisiana bids for 3GW solar power expansion

Entergy Louisiana LLC, a division of U.S. utility company Entergy Corp (NYSE:ETR), has asked regulators to allow it to add 3 GW of solar power to its generating capacity, the largest renewable energy expansion request in the state’s history.

The company said Thursday it filed the request with the Louisiana Public Service Commission on March 13. Combined with the nearly 225 MW of solar resources the utility recently requested, this means 3,225 MW of solar power is on the waiting list for potential construction, development and addition. to the network through agreements with Entergy Louisiana, he added.

Currently, Entergy Louisiana has only about 280 MW of renewable resources. Taking into account nuclear generation, the share of carbon-free resources in its portfolio is almost 25%.

The planned new solar capacity in Louisiana is in line with Entergy Corp’s goal of having 15 GW to 17 GW of renewable resources by the end of 2031.
