Sierra CLub- ENTERGY’S LATEST REQUEST TO BUILD GAS PLANT IN CONFLICT WITH MAYOR’S CLIMATE ACTION STRATEGY
(New Orleans, LA) – Yesterday, Entergy New Orleans submitted its latest proposal to build a gas power plant in New Orleans East despite ongoing opposition from residents, businesses and organizations. Today, the Alliance for Affordable Energy, Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, and the Sierra Club commend Mayor Mitch Landrieu for developing a Climate Action Strategy for the City of New Orleans. The Mayor’s ‘Climate Action for a Resilient New Orleans’ calls for 255 megawatts of locally generated solar energy by 2030 and promotes a transition to 100% "low-carbon power."
