NEW ORLEANS — For the fourth consecutive year, Entergy Corporation has been recognized as one of the top 10 utilities in North America for its work to support economic development in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. The recognition comes in this month’s issue of Site Selection magazine.

When choosing winners, the magazine considers economic development project activity; survey input from corporate end users and site consultants; website tools and data; innovative programs and incentives for business, including energy efficiency and renewable energy programs, and, the utility’s own job-creating infrastructure and facility investment trends.

Entergy was specifically cited for the $3.1 billion in new capital investments and more than 7,800 jobs that Entergy’s utility companies helped to create in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas in 2010.

The other winners, in alphabetical order, are: Alabama Power, Ameren, Duke Energy, FirstEnergy, Georgia Power, Hoosier Energy, Hydro-Québec, Progress Energy and Tennessee Valley Authority.
