KEMPER COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - As a new year rolls around, the Kemper County power plant continues to work toward becoming fully operational.
In a December report, Mississippi Power said there remained a chance it could make the Kemper County plant fully operational by the end of 2016. However, it was more hopeful the lignite plant would go on line in January.
A recently filed report says in part:
The plant is producing power through its lignite operation. Although the power is being used by Mississippi Power customers, the more than $7 billion investment still is not fully operational.
