Sullivan & Worcester's Clint Vince discusses how to rebuild the New Orleans grid

Hurricanes Katrina and Rita caused severe damage to energy facilities along the Gulf Coast, leading Entergy New Orleans to declare bankruptcy after the storms. While Congress recently approved billions of dollars to help rebuild in the region, it is unclear how much money will be put into energy infrastructure. Will Entergy need more funding from appropriators to avoid bankruptcy? And can the city and the utility resolve their long-standing differences? During today's OnPoint, Clint Vince, head of the energy and environmental practice at Sullivan & Worcester, and an adviser to the city on energy issues, discusses these questions and more.
