NOTICE is hereby given that, pursuant to article IV, section 21(D)(1) of the Louisiana Constitution, that on November 13, 2009, Entergy Louisiana, LLC. (“ELL”), an electric public utility having facilities to provide retail electric service to residential, commercial, industrial, and governmental customers in forty-six Parishes of the State of Louisiana, filed with the Louisiana Public Service Commission (“LPSC”) an Application for Approval to Purchase Power Block Two of the Acadia Energy Center and together with Entergy Gulf States Louisiana, L.L.C. (“EGSL”), an electric public utility having facilities to provide retail electric service to residential, commercial, industrial, and governmental customers in eighteen Parishes of the State of Louisiana, (ELL and EGSL, collectively, the “Companies”), filed a Joint Application of Entergy Louisiana, LLC and Entergy Gulf States Louisiana, L.L.C. for Approval to Participate in Certain Related Contracts for the Purchase of Capacity and Electric Power and for Cost Recovery.
In this application, ELL seeks approval to purchase Power Block Two of the Acadia Energy Facility which is a nominally-rated 580 MW CCGT generating facility that ELL proposes to acquire from Acadia Power Partners, LLC (“APP”) along with a 50% undivided co-ownership interest in the plant common facilities. In this joint application, EGSL seeks approval to purchase from ELL, pursuant to Service Schedule MSS-4, a one-third share of the capacity and energy generated by Power Block Two on a life-of-unit basis. The Companies also seek approval of a limited-term Interim Tolling Agreement (“ITA”) between ELL and APP that will serve as a bridge to the proposed acquisition and a related purchase by EGSL under MSS-4 of one-third of the capacity and energy available under the Bridge ITA. Closing on the acquisition of Power Block Two is currently targeted for March 31, 2011. ELL proposes that the Commission authorize ELL and EGSL to contemporaneously change their respective base rates to reflect the costs of the acquisition and life-of-unit purchase power agreement, respectively, upon commercial closing of the acquisition of Power Block Two (i.e., April 1, 2011, if the closing occurs on March 31, 2011, as expected) and to grant such other relief to which the Companies may show themselves to be entitled.
