At Entergy (NYSE: ETR), we power life. More than 100 years ago, our founder Harvey Couch started this company with a handshake, some sawdust and a vision. Couch wanted to bring safe, affordable, reliable energy to the Middle South – energy that would power the lives of people and communities.
Today, we own and operate one of the cleanest large-scale U.S. power generating fleets with approximately 30,000 megawatts of electric generating capacity, including 7,000 megawatts of nuclear power.
The thousands of men and women of Entergy deliver electricity to 3 million utility customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, generating annual revenues of $10 billion. Headquartered in New Orleans, we continue to play a driving role in the economic growth of the Gulf South.
Our work matters. That’s been true for more than 100 years. And as we look to the next century, we remember the constant that bridges our past and future: We Power Life.
