Mississipi Power wins coal plant approval

Mississippi Power has secured approval from the Mississippi Public Service Commission (PSC) for its new 582 MW coal fired plant in the state.

Energy Business Review reports that the PSC had voted for the power project again after the state Supreme Court asked more details last month on why the commissioners raised the cost of the plant to $2.88bn from $2.4bn.

The Commission noted that the Kemper coal-gasification power project will serve as an alternative source to provide reliable energy, contributed by lignite currently, for the next several decades.
