Entergy transmission project moves along with MISO approval
The Midcontinent ISO (MISO) board of directors recently approved the proposed Lake Charles Transmission Project, Entergy Chairman and CEO Leo Denault said on April 28 during the company’s 1Q15 earnings webcast.
Entergy’s Entergy Gulf States Louisiana in January told TransmissionHub about plans to add around 25 miles of high voltage AC transmission lines, both 500-kV and 230-kV, build two new substations and expand a third in the Lake Charles area of Louisiana.
The Lake Charles Transmission Project is planned to bring power more reliably and efficiently into a region projected to have the fastest job growth rate in the state, the company added in a Jan. 8 statement.
A MISO spokesperson told TransmissionHub April 28 that the MISO board approved Entergy’s request for expedited approval on April 23 at the MISO board meetings.
