Entergy New Orleans, Inc. Integrated Resource Plan
Entergy New Orleans is committed to providing its customers with safe and reliable service at the lowest reasonable cost. Integrated resource planning is an important part of the process utilized to help achieve that goal. Integrated resource planning takes into account estimates of customers’ future energy needs and the resources available to serve those needs in order to develop a long-range plan to inform future planning activities. Because customers' needs and the world around us change over time, Entergy New Orleans periodically reviews and updates the IRP in order to ensure the IRP reflects those changes.
Entergy New Orleans conducts its IRP process consistent with all applicable regulatory requirements. Beginning in 2008, the Council for the City of New Orleans established guidelines for development and periodic review of Entergy New Orleans’ integrated resource plan. On October 30, 2012 Entergy New Orleans filed the Company’s 2012 IRP with the City Council. At the conclusion of an extensive review, on October 13, 2013 the City Council approved the ENO 2012 IRP as a balanced and reasonable plan for meeting customers' future needs. More information on the 2012 IRP can be found by clicking on the link below.
As part of the City Council’s requirement to seek input on the development of each IRP, on June 5, 2014 Entergy New Orleans received approval for a plan that will seek input from stakeholders in the community as the 2015 IRP is developed. Additional information on that process is available through the link provided below.
