Entergy Louisiana’s proposal to add up to three gigawatts of economic solar power to its generation portfolio has been approved by the Louisiana Public Service Commission, the electrical provider announced.

It marks the largest renewable power expansion in state history. “This approval underscores our commitment to meeting operational and sustainability needs, driving economic development, and protecting the environment,” says Phillip May, Entergy Louisiana President and CEO.
