Throughout its history, Entergy has been a major source for economic development throughout its service territory, which includes some of the nation's poorest regions. While providing a product vital to expansion, the company also has played an active role in attracting business and industry to the area. The leaders of Entergy Mississippi were key players in attracting Nissan Motors to locate a major assembly plant near Jackson. In the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, and hurricanes Gustav and Ike in 2008, Entergy companies have played a key role in rebuilding infrastructure so that communities affected by the storms have the best chance to revitalize their economies.
