Mississippi Power Company will ask state regulators to reconsider conditions they placed on the utility for building a coal-fired generating plant in Kemper County.
The Public Service Commission last week approved the plant application but with a lengthy set of conditions that Mississippi Power said after the decision would make it impossible to finance or construct the plant.
The three-member Mississippi Public Service Commission voted 2-1 in favor of the proposal, detailing its decision in a 50-page document.
Mississippi Power spokeswoman Cindy Duvall said Tuesday that the company's request for a rehearing will include a brief on why the conditions in the PSC's order would not allow the company to act in a fiscally responsible manner.
