Mississippi Power files for rate increase

Mississippi Power made two annual rate filings as required by the Mississippi Public Service Commission.
The company is seeking a four percent increase in its pep filing and a 4.5 percent increase in fuel costs for a total of 8.5 percent. These filings would result in a residential customer using 1,000 kilowatts of electricity per month, an increase of $11.45 per month or less than 40 cents per day. The company has not had a pep increase since 2013.
Mississippi Power President Anthony Wilson said, “We have been able to provide our customers with industry-leading customer service and performance without asking for a rate increase over the last four years. While our employees have found efficiencies in our operations companywide, these filings are necessary to deliver the level of service our customers expect.”
