The Kemper County Combined-Cycle Power Plant in Mississippi is celebrating its first year of service.
Plant owner Mississippi Power, a unit of Southern Co. (NYSE: SO), began operations at the plant in August 2014. Since then, the combined-cycle plant has generated more than 3.5 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity. The plant combines two gas-fired turbines with a steam turbine to make up to 50 percent more electricity from the fuel it consumes.
Work continues on the coal gasification side of the plant.
