In December 2012, Cleco Power, Entergy Gulf States Louisiana, and Lafayette Utilities System completed the $193m transmission infrastructure improvement project in an area referred to as the Acadiana Load Pocket (ALP). Construction of the 90-mile 230-kV Acadiana Load Pocket Reliability Project began early in 2010 and is being completed in phases, with each bringing improvements to transmission reliability. The project was completed on schedule and $40m below the original budget.
