Entergy is committed to a cleaner, sustainable energy future.
We recognize that our customers increasingly have sustainability and climate goals and seek more renewable energy solutions. Generating electricity from renewable resources is playing an important role in the transformation to a cleaner energy future. Entergy is expanding its renewable energy solutions to serve our customers and communities across the Gulf South region.
Today, Entergy operates one of the cleanest large-scale power generating fleets in the nation. We are working toward a new climate goal to reduce our emission intensity by 50% from our 2000 level by 2030. Renewable energy resources are key to achieving our goal.
Entergy is also taking many actions to transform its utility generation to better meet customers’ needs, including pursuing additional cost-effective renewable energy opportunities and potential applications for distributed energy resources as technology and economics continue to improve.
Looking ahead, more renewable energy generation will be added to Entergy’s balanced energy mix. Investing in renewable energy helps improve grid reliability, protects the environment and supports the sustainability goals of our company and our customers.
