Entergy Louisiana customers in Southwest Louisiana are now being served by a stronger, more resilient grid with the completion of a nearly $100 million project.
Improvements will modernize and upgrade infrastructure.
Entergy Louisiana and Cleco customers are being served by a stronger, more resilient electric grid. The companies have completed the construction of a new 36-mile, storm-hardened transmission line that will strengthen service reliability for customers across southeast Louisiana.
Even before the clouds passed, the rain ended and the final power outage was restored, Entergy employees came together to plan. First, Entergy worked to help customers and employees rebuild stronger communities. Entergy employees also worked to rebuild a stronger electric system. In the past year, Entergy Texas has taken steps to protect electric infrastructure, and improve restoration efforts following extreme weather.
In an effort to modernize the electric grid and support a growing city today and tomorrow, Entergy New Orleans’ crews are hitting the streets in what is known as a reliability blitz.
Since early this year, contractors have been in cities and rural communities throughout Southeast Texas conducting reliability inspections of more than 30,000 utility poles spread throughout the Entergy Texas, Inc. service area.
A 38-mile power line that originates in the heart of The Woodlands is about to get a service reliability makeover.
Dayton area residents will benefit from yet another service reliability project when contract crews begin work to remove vegetation from a power line that includes the FM 563 right-of-way.
