in Government

The Public Utility Commission of Texas recently approved Entergy Texas’ proposal to build the Orange County Advanced Power Station, a 1,215-megawatt combined cycle power facility in Orange, Texas. Located in one of the largest industrial regions in the nation, the plant will serve as the foundation to power and enable growth in Southeast Texas.

The addition of this facility will ensure the region continues to have modern, reliable infrastructure well into the future by replacing end-of-life legacy gas generation with new, modern, and efficient generation capable of powering more than 230,000 homes. Construction started in early 2023, and the project is expected to be completed by 2026.
