Happy Birthday, Entergy!

Entergy's story began Nov. 13, 1913, with a pile of sawdust and a handshake between H. H. Foster, president of the Arkansas Land and Lumber Company, and Harvey Couch. Couch used Foster's sawdust as fuel to generate electricity for his power company. Since then, Couch's company - Entergy Corporation - ranks among the largest U.S. utility companies. It is an integrated energy company with six utility companies delivering electricity to 2.8 million customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. Entergy is celebrating its 100th birthday throughout the year, commemorating the company's first 100 years of committed service and preparing for another century of excellence.
