Entergy subsidiaries, Entergy Arkansas, Entergy Gulf States Louisiana, and Entergy Texas have signed an agreement to acquire the Union Power Station, a highly efficient, natural gas-fired 1,980-MW generating facility. The station is owned by Union Power Partners, an independent power producer, and wholly owned by Entegra TC. The Union Power Station, which entered commercial service in 2003, consists of four combined-cycle gas-fired generating units, or CCGTs, each rated at 495 MW.
Entergy utility operating companies completed the integration of their transmission system into the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO). Entergy's utility operating companies — Entergy Arkansas, Entergy Mississippi, Entergy Texas, Entergy Louisiana, Entergy Gulf States Louisiana, and Entergy New Orleans — have been working for more than two years to plan and prepare for the transition. With the integration into MISO, these functions will now be managed by MISO across its newly-expanded regional footprint.
