The New Orleans City Council is recommending Entergy be fined $1 million for equipment failures leading to thousands of outages over the past five years.
The news comes after residents and business owners in the area lost power again yesterday for several hours.
Officials say the latest round of outages once again call into question the reliability of Entergy New Orleans power distribution system.
Craig Charter School in Treme also lost electricity yesterday morning. Classes are expected to resume there today.
