Hearing Dates Set for Mississippi Power Project

Central District Public Service Commissioner Lynn Posey announced Monday that the Commission has officially set Oct. 5-8 as the dates to begin the Phase 1 hearings on the petition of Mississippi Power Company to seek a certificate of public convenience and necessity authorizing the acquisition, construction, and operation of an electric generating plant, associated transmission facilities, associated gas pipeline facilities, associated right-of-way and related facilities in Kemper, Lauderdale, Clarke, and Jasper counties.

In Phase 1, the commission will establish a reasonable range of forecasts of customer load and a census of existing and likely resources. The commission also will take into account the likely results of demand-side initiatives (e.g., rate design and energy efficiency programs) currently in place.

At the close of Phase 1, the commission will determine whether there will be a gap between forecast load and resources, and if so, when that gap will appear. If a need is determined in Phase 1, the commission will proceed to Phase 2.

The hearing will be held in the MPSC’s courtroom on the first floor of the Woolfolk Building and can be viewed via the Internet by accessing the Commission website.
