Mississippi Power Not a Subject of
State Probe into Overcharges into Entergy
Entergy serves customers in the central and central western portions of Mississippi, while Mississippi Power serves customers on the Coast. The two companies are not connected and the state's investigation by the Mississippi Public Service Commission and the Mississippi Attorney General does not involve Mississippi Power.
In a statement regarding whether Mississippi Power is
also under scrutiny, Attorney General Jim Hood told GCN via email
Mississippi Power has requested a 9.2 rate increase based upon what the company claims are higher fuel costs. The Public Service Commission has not yet ruled on the rate increase but the matter is under consideration at this time by the PSC.
