New Orleans Transmission Improvement and Expansion

As of 4/25/16. Subject to change.

Entergy New Orleans Electric Power Transmission System Upgrade

Description: This project is a two-phase technological upgrade to transmission lines originating at the Entergy Ninemile generating facility. The first phase, Ninemile-Napoleon substation, will begin in July 2015. The second phase, Ninemile-Derbigny substation, will begin in October 2015. Both phases will replace the existing 230 kilovolt transmission lines with a 3M™ aluminum conductor composite reinforced high-voltage wire that will move power more reliably and efficiently. Through the use of this advanced technology, Entergy minimizes the need to replace the existing steel poles while providing additional transmission capacity.

Cost: Approximately $30 million.

Status: This project is now complete.

Benefits: The project will enhance reliability, increase transmission capacity and help ensure the availability of affordable power in the New Orleans area.
