The state's largest utility needs to come up with more power before the end of 2016.
And it needs to find even more by the end of 2019 to meet the demands of Louisiana's ongoing industrial boom.

The Advocate reports Entergy is spending a couple of billion dollars over the next few years to move huge amounts of electricity to where the new manufacturing facilities will be located.
