Gulotta has been a long-time member of the LEPA Board of Directors and has served in various officer positions, including chairman, in the past. LEPA is currently building a new $120 million natural gas fired electrical power plant in Morgan City. The plant is expected to be completed in the fall of 2015.

Six LEPA member municipalities: Morgan City, Houma, Jonesville, Plaquemine, Rayne and Vidalia, have committed to participate in the plant construction by entering into long-term power sales agreements for the plant's power output. “The plant is expected to supply these municipalities with competitively priced electrical power that will reduce their reliance on older, more costly electric supply options,” said Cordell Grand, LEPA General Manager.

ABOUT LEPA: Created by the Louisiana Legislature in 1979, LEPA consists of 17 Louisiana municipalities that each maintain their own independent municipal electrical system. LEPA is a joint-action agency working to provide its member communities with firm, stable sources of electrical power at the lowest possible cost.
