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. Entergy will work over the next three decades to reduce carbon emissions from our operations to net-zero by 2050. By 2030, we’ll reduce the carbon emissions rate by half compared to year 2000 levels.
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.
The table below shows Entergy’s current and publicly announced renewable energy projects to date.
