Entergy named a National Leader in economic development for 12th consecutive year

For 12 years running, Site Selection magazine has named Entergy Corporation as one of the nation’s top utilities in economic development. The award is due to the vital role Entergy plays in economic development efforts across Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.

“This is a tremendous honor that speaks directly to our commitment to bring jobs and growth to our communities,” said Ed Gardner, Entergy Mississippi director of business and economic development. “In 2018 alone, Entergy Mississippi’s work with state, regional and local partners helped create 1,256 jobs and attract $145 million in capital investment in the state.”
