Mississippi Power

To ensure a steady, reliable source of electricity for our customers, we meet the growing demands for energy by having a diverse portfolio of energy sources. Diversifying our resources allows us to deploy innovative ways to generate clean, reliable and cost-effective electricity, while avoiding an over reliance on one fuel source and staying environmentally responsible. The Kemper County energy facility is a great example of how we’re combining technology and an abundant Mississippi resource to provide affordable electricity for generations to come. Using state-of-the-art technology, we’re bringing the cleanest coal plant in the world online in Kemper County and we are the largest utility-scale solar energy provider in the state. Mississippi Power’s commitment goes beyond providing electric service to our customers. Through our programs and volunteer efforts, we work to improve the quality of life in the communities where we serve and live. Whether it’s our employees unselfishly giving their time, money and efforts to improve and enrich local neighborhoods or our economic development teams working to bring more businesses and jobs to the state, we are continually committed to helping make a difference for our customers and communities. It’s who we are and the way we do business.
