Diamond Pipeline

Arkansas Nuclear One near Russellville is a major power source  for Entergy Arkansas, which derives nearly 70 percent of its generation from nuclear sources. Entergy, like other Arkansas utilities, uses far less coal than it once did, and a Trump administration is not likely to reverse the trend. Coal-fired generation makes up just 4 percent of Entergy’s total. Cheap natural gas provides 24 percent.
