I understand workers need to eat and sleep and need breaks. I am cool with that. I also understand that you have a limited number of trucks that can be manned at any given time to work on the power lines.

But why doesn’t Entergy have more personal than equipment so that while crews are taking breaks, the other crews can be using the equipment? This way you would never see equipment just sitting in a parking lot.

It is very simple. Have two crews per truck. Each crew works 11 hours in the field. The other hour is used getting back to wherever the crews swap the trucks. Then the other crew goes out for 11 hours. This way you would have at least 22 hours a day of Entergy working to restore power to the citizens of Louisiana.

That the CEO of Entergy couldn’t figure this out makes me tend to agree with John Young that he should resign.
