Entergy New Orleans, in partnership with the City of New Orleans, has installed 30 charging stations at 25 locations across the city to complete the state’s first utility-owned public electric vehicle charging program.
The last completed station in front of New Orleans City Hall is now live, joining additional sites including Pontchartrain Park, East NOLA Regional Library, Audubon Zoo, Audubon Fly, Lafitte Greenway, and Coliseum Square.
“Not only will these new chargers provide equitable access to free EV charging across New Orleans, but it shows that our city is ready to walk the walk when it comes to building a cleaner energy future,” says Deanna Rodriguez, president and CEO of Entergy New Orleans.
Every electric vehicle charging station in the program is open to the public and free to use. They are primarily located at NORD facilities, libraries and public parks, which were determined based on public input from an online survey completed in 2021.
