Mississippi Power to file customer payment plan on Monday
Mississippi Power Company says it will file plans Monday for customers to pay their share of its $7.3 billion Kemper County Power Plant, even though the plant isn’t finished.
The unit of Atlanta-based Southern Company did not yet have a cost update in a Wednesday statement after Mississippi Power pushed back Kemper’s completion date for the 10th time in 18 months. The utility is struggling to reliably run the plant.
Customers could be asked to pay more than $4.3 billion. Southern shareholders have lost $2.9 billion.
Mississippi Power will file with the Public Service Commission whose three elected members ultimately decide how much customers pay.
