On behalf of Alliance for Affordable Energy, Clinic Director and Senior Economist Liz Stanton, PhD submitted an Applied Economics Clinic testimony in Docket No. UD-16-02 providing an expert opinion as to whether or not Entergy New Orleans' request for a new power station to address their capacity deficit is reasonable, given alternative options to address any assumed capacity deficit and within the context of the City of New Orleans' climate regulations. Dr. Stanton concluded that Entergy New Orleans needs less capacity than it has reported, that the company has not considered a full set of alternatives to meet New Orleans' needs, and that the New Orleans City Council should wait to make a decision about the New Orleans Power Station until it has all information at hand.
