Kemper County power plant reconsideration on hold

JACKSON, MS (WLOX) - Mississippi Power's fight for a new power plant is on hold for another 12 days. The Mississippi Public Service Commission met Friday and extended the deadline to make a determination on Mississippi Power's motion for reconsideration.

The PSC's new deadline is May 26. On that day, PSC Commissioner Leonard Bentz said his agency will either rule in favor of its initial finding, and nothing will change. Or, the PSC will try and work something out that allows Mississippi Power to move forward with its Kemper County lignite plant.
