Representatives from Entergy Mississippi, Inc. and DeSoto County gathered today to celebrate history in the making, and the star of the event was the sun itself.
Entergy New Orleans, Inc. has selected power generation contractor Blattner Energy, Inc. to build the city's first utility-scale solar project.
Construction is underway on the second of three Entergy Mississippi solar pilot installations in the state, this one in DeSoto County. The installations are the first-ever utility-owned solar projects in Mississippi.
New Orleans will soon become home to the city's first utility-scale solar project that not only harnesses the power of the sun, but stores it as well.
