Entergy New Orleans, a subsidiary of Entergy Corporation, is an electric and gas utility serving Orleans Parish. Entergy New Orleans owns one generating station: the 870 MW Michoud Plant located in eastern New Orleans.

Formed in the early 1900s as New Orleans Public Service Inc., or NOPSI, the company originally provided gas and electric service and maintained the streetcar and bus lines with one simple goal: to provide courteous, continuous and efficient service at all times. Although the company eventually relinquished operation of the streetcar and bus lines, Entergy New Orleans maintains a similar goal with a new slogan: keep the lights on and the gas flowing.
