Kemper Plant will miss construction deadline

Posted: Updated:
GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Mississippi Power will miss its May deadline to complete construction on the Kemper County power plant.

The power company blames wet weather and "lower-than-planned construction labor productivity" as reasons for the delay.

Because the lignite plant won't be done on time, Mississippi Power will be forced to repay $133 million in federal tax credits.

No word yet on when the plant is expected to be finished.
