Mississippi Power to Refund Customers

Mississippi Power customers could see lower bills starting next month and refunds by November.
The Mississippi Public Service Commission voted 3 to 0 today to comply with a state Supreme Court order that found the 2013 rate increase for the $6.2 billion plant illegal.
The 18 percent rate increase must be rolled back starting with the August billing cycle. While the PSC has determined the refund should either be issued by a check or a bill credit, Mississippi Power believes the safest and quickest method is by providing bill credits. They believe this is safer than mailing checks to customers. Commissioners say they’ll vote on the actual refund plan in August.
Any rate decrease could be short-lived. Mississippi Power sought to increase rates after the court ruling and could enact increases later this year.
