Entergy estimated that Ida damaged 30,000 utility poles, nearly as many as the combined effects of Hurricanes Katrina in 2005 and Laura in 2020.
The projects span seven states and total 38.3 MW in capacity.
The 12 self-contained solar power stations include 30 solar panels that provide 11,400W, along with an inverter and battery pack that provides up to 27,000 watt-hours of electricity.
The Footprint Project is seeking hardware and monetary donations to construct solar power plus energy storage mobile microgrids in New Orleans. It also is the focus of a GoFundMe page.
Entergy counted 216 substations and 207 transmission lines as being out of service. One line that crosses the Mississippi fell into the river.
All transmission lines to the city were affected, and officials scrambled to provide power for the city’s water and sewer systems.
The two companies have signed on to purchase shares of the energy generated by Lightsource bp’s upcoming 345 MW Ventress Solar project.
Also on the rise: nearly 1 GW of solar has been proposed for development in Louisiana, Generac acquires an American microinverter manufacturer, and EVgo goes public.
The project is expected to produce the equivalent of 1,000 MW of green hydrogen produced by electrolysis and is part of a multi-year, $9.2 billion energy investment.
MISO’s renewables mix is set for a potential shift from wind to solar — if it can confront the challenge of transmission costs.
