Gulf Coast residents weigh in on electric bill increases that will fund Mississippi Power’s Kemper County clean coal plant.
Upcoming electricity bill increases due to Mississippi Power Company’s $4-billion clean coal plant under construction in Kemper County, Miss. will hurt residents and cripple small businesses. It doesn’t have to be this way. Other states are benefiting from cheap energy from natural gas. Mississippians can, too.
State regulators will soon hold “prudence reviews”; Mississippi Power can be forced to eat “imprudent” Kemper costs so customers won’t have to.
