Meet the pros: Waterford 3’s Chelcie Binnings


In celebration of Women’s History Month, meet Chelcie Binnings, a senior lead engineer on the Engineering Fix-It-Now team at Waterford 3 Steam Electric Station, located in Killona, La.

Binnings and her team are responsible for supporting the station’s troubleshooting and resolving emergent electrical issues.

Her passion for engineering and STEM extends to her role as the Women in Nuclear chapter president at Waterford 3, with the goal of encouraging more women to pursue a STEM career in the nuclear industry.

Binnings’ love for the field of engineering was sparked by her grandfather who always spoke highly of engineers, inspiring her to challenge herself by pursuing a career in engineering. She earned her bachelor's degree in electrical engineering with a math minor from the University of New Orleans.

Prior to her current role, Binnings was a member of the component maintenance support group, supporting site and fleet motor, cable and breaker issues. She joined Entergy in 2017 as a member of a team that ensured the reliability of critical equipment components, thereby ensuring a reliable operating cycle. Binnings is the utility chair for the Electric Power Research Institute circuit breaker user group and hopes to improve industry breaker maintenance practices and reliability with her role.
