BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Power provider Entergy Louisiana says it will give $1 million to Louisiana State University's College of Engineering to provide a research laboratory and classroom complex.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1iaBPWJ ) LSU has raised more than $50 million to renovate Patrick F. Taylor Hall, which will be turned into a high-tech engineering complex.

LSU and the state of Louisiana have a partnership under which the state matches dollars raised by the university.

LSU officials say Entergy’s donation will help promote innovative research and teaching.

The latest gift follows Entergy’s earlier $300,000 gift to the engineering college for equipment.

Entergy Louisiana is a subsidiary of New Orleans-based Entergy Corp.
