Mississippi Power lowering rates
Mississippi Power customers will soon see a change in the cost of their electricity, and it's not an increase.
Spokesperson Jeff Shepard says a series of filings will help the company reduce power bills.
Mississippi Power requested reductions that could result in retail customers saving as much as $2.86 a month.
Expected to happen next year, an additional reduction of $2.17 will be taken off of residential customer bills, allowing some customers to save over $5.00 on their monthly bills.
"We're very excited to be able to pass those savings along to our customers," said Shepard. "Our teams work every day to deliver safe and reliable service at affordable rates, and again, we're just very excited to be able to pass that along to our customers."
Some of the bill reductions require the approval of the Mississippi Public Service Commission. However customers will begin to see a $2.00 reduction on January's bill.
