The foundations of Entergy go back to the early 1900s when Harvey Couch of the Arkansas Power Company reached an agreement with H. H. Foster, president of Arkansas Land and Lumber. Having access to sawdust was Couch’s goal, as he felt it would be key to generating affordable power to residents of Arkansas. As this was a success, Couch continued to negotiate new contracts to spread the reach of electricity. With the addition of a hydroelectric dam in 1924, he was able to power areas as far as 300 miles away. It wouldn’t be until 1989 that the company officially became Entergy Corporation, a combination of energy, enterprise, and synergy.
