To help deliver customer solutions and protect the environment, Entergy Louisiana has expanded its shore power capabilities so that Crowley vessels operating out of the Port of Lake Charles have a more sustainable and low-emission option while docked, reports Access Wire.

Shore power is an idle-reduction technology that enables vessels to connect to electricity rather than run on fossil fuels when not in service, resulting in lower emissions and noise due to reduced engine use.

This is the second shore power project Entergy has completed along the Gulf Coast, with the first being launched at Port Fourchon in Lafourche Parish. Read the entire story.
