The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has released a decision siding with the Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC) in its dispute against System Energy Resources, Inc. (SERI), a subsidiary of Entergy Corporation (Entergy).

For 35+ years, the Alliance for Affordable Energy has been advocating for equitable, affordable, and environmentally responsible energy for the people of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. While we are often opposed by powerful corporations and entrenched interests, our supporters and community partnerships have helped The Alliance succeed and advance energy policy that benefits Louisianans.

Over the last 4 months Louisianans have been involved in choosing who will represent them, but now the work really begins.
