August 4, 2022--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--The brutal heat sweeping much of the U.S. has fired up profits at <a href='https://www.entergy.com/' target='_blank'>Entergy Corporation</a> (<a href='https://www.nyse.com/quote/XNYS:ETR' target='_blank'>NYSE:ETR</a>) (New Orleans, Louisiana). As the company backs away from its nuclear and coal-fired business, it is strengthening its presence on the Texas and Louisiana power grids, where demand is driven by growth in the energy industry. Industrial Info is tracking more than $10 billion worth of active projects from Entergy, more than half of which is attributed to unit closures at nuclear and coal-fired generation facilities. Much of Entergy's T&D buildout can be found in the coastal regions of Texas and Louisiana. In addition to soaring temperatures, these areas are expected to need a stronger power grid for a slew of export-related energy projects, including facilities for the production and distribution of liquefied natural gas (LNG), that are set to be brought online in the coming years.
