U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm is visiting Louisiana in her second trip to the state this year.
- According to her office, she is here as part of the Biden-Harris administration's "commitment to deliver historic clean energy investments to often underserved and overburdened communities."
What's next: Granholm, Gov. John Bel Edwards and U.S. Rep. Troy Carter on Friday will visit Koura, a manufacturing facility for electric vehicle battery components, in St. Gabriel.
