American utility Entergy has partnered with NextEra Energy Resources, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy, in a five-year joint development agreement for 4.5GW of new solar and energy storage projects in the US.

The joint development agreement is a step towards expanding Entergy’s renewable energy portfolio.

Entergy utility operations group president Rod West stated: “We’re excited about this joint development agreement, which will enable Entergy to provide our customers with low-cost, renewable energy as demand grows across Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.”

NextEra Energy Resources president and CEO Rebecca Kujawa stated: “We believe the power sector is at an inflection point, and growing electricity demand will be met by low-cost, renewable generation and storage.

“We’re pleased to reach this agreement because it further strengthens our long-standing collaboration and adds up to 4.5GW on top of the more than 1.7GW of renewable energy projects already underway with Entergy.”

Entergy Texas previously sought approval from the Public Utility Commission of Texas for two advanced natural gas power plants.
