MBJ is off base when it comes to IPP highway

Editor, In your recent article, “Entergy agrees to give up control,” writer Amy McCullough states that some officials “believe that Entergy has neglected transmission system improvements and purposefully engaged in keeping IPPs off its energy transportation highway.”   What is left out of this point is that, in general, the independent power producers (IPPs) cannot […] [...]
