PSC Issues New Ruling for Kemper Lignite Plant

State regulators have loosened some of their earlier restrictions on Mississippi Power Co.'s proposed coal-fired electrical generating plant in Kemper County, including a decision that would let the company collect construction costs from ratepayers.

The Public Service Commission voted 2-1 Wednesday on the new conditions for the plant application.

Last month, the commission approved the application but with a lengthy set of conditions that Mississippi Power said would have made it impossible for the company to finance or build the plant.

Mississippi Power spokeswoman Cindy Duvall said the company had no immediate comment on the PSC decision, but would issue a statement later.
