JACKSON, MS (WLOX) -

Mississippi Power customers will see lower power bills starting in February. Tuesday, the Mississippi Public Service Commission approved the rate reduction that will be about $13.70 a month, based on average usage of 1,000 kilowatts.

The savings come because Mississippi Power is paying less for fuel to generate electricity, and customers are benefiting from those savings.

“This filing reaffirms Mississippi Power’s commitment to providing clean, safe and affordable electricity to our customers,” President and CEO Anthony Wilson said. “Our ability to take advantage of lower fuel costs and the reliability of our generating units and the employees that operate them are directly benefiting customers.”
