Entergy Louisiana representatives and City of West Monroe officials recently celebrated the expansion of eco-friendly transportation to the downtown area with the installment of several electric vehicle chargers.

The installment was made possible through an Environmental Initiative grant through Entergy.

“Thank you to Entergy Louisiana for providing funding through its Environmental Initiatives Fund to support the installation of electric vehicle chargers in downtown West Monroe,” said West Monroe Mayor Staci Mitchell. “As the number of electric vehicles increases across the country, we wanted to be ready to receive and serve those visitors and residents in the West Monroe community. Already, we have seen the chargers in use and look forward to installing them at the City’s newly-constructed indoor sports facility which will open later this year.”

“We’re proud to partner with the City of West Monroe in an effort to boost eco-friendly transportation and lower local emissions by equipping the downtown area with electric vehicle chargers,” said Phillip May, Entergy Louisiana president and CEO.

The newly installed electric vehicle chargers are located in a parking lot at the intersection of Trenton and Wood Streets in downtown West Monroe. These chargers will be accessible for a fee, allowing electric vehicle owners to conveniently power up.

The City of West Monroe's initiative, in partnership with Entergy Louisiana, is set to make electric vehicle charging more accessible and convenient for residents and visitors, contributing to a greener and more sustainable future.
