Entergy Louisiana is set to build a new $869 million power plant in St. Charles Parish, in an effort to strengthen power generation and transmission across the region.
The natural gas-fired plant, known as the St. Charles Power Station, is expected to generate up to 980 megawatts of electricity. Once opened in 2019, the plant will employ 27 permanent workers and up to 700 workers during construction.
In a news release, Phillip May, president and CEO of Entergy Louisiana, said the new plant is more efficient and will save customers money in the long run, providing "a reliable source of clean, affordable energy to meet customer demand and help drive economic growth."
