This afternoon, the Mississippi Supreme Court issued a ruling denying rehearing requests from Mississippi Power and the Public Service Commission related to its February ruling associated with the Kemper County energy facility.
While we are certainly disappointed with the decision, we continue to do everything reasonable to protect the interests of our customers and the company.
Because rehearings in cases such as these are rare, on May 15 the company filed rate proposals with the state Public Service Commission in anticipation of this ruling.
We will work with the Mississippi PSC to determine the next steps in this process and will continue to work on methods to lower the impact on customer bills.
We are reviewing the Court’s decision and will provide updates on any further response from the company as necessary.
