Entergy Helping Create More Vibrant Economy in Capital Region

BATON ROUGE — Entergy Louisiana is continuing to partner with regional organizations to help the state, including Greater Baton Rouge, grow through economic development.
The company recently provided nearly $235,000 to the Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC) to help fund the organizations’ efforts to support workforce development, retain businesses in the region and attract new ones to the area and, ultimately, create a more vibrant economy in the Capital Region.
“Entergy has been an integral partner in our work for decades,” said Adam Knapp, president and CEO of BRAC. “Not only does Entergy support BRAC’s mission financially, it also engages deeply in our business development work, provides volunteer leadership to head committees, and serves as a trusted thought partner on our attraction and retention efforts.”
Through its Business and Economic Development team, Entergy Louisiana works with state and local government agencies, economic development organizations and community partners to support businesses from site selection to groundbreaking, including those operating at the national and global level.
To help businesses determine where to locate or expand, Entergy developed and maintains the Louisiana Site Selection Center, an online database of certified sites, or sites that are ready for development. The database includes details about shovel-ready land, including available utilities and transportation access. Entergy also helps market and promote sites through informative displays and videos like the ones found on the Livingston Industrial Park page, the River-Plex Mega-Site of Louisiana page and this page featuring a site in West Baton Rouge Parish (go to the Documents & Images section
