Mississippi Power Co. Key Developments
The Mississippi Supreme Court Denies Motions for Rehearing Filed by Mississippi Power, Mississippi Public Service Commission on Kemper Decision
Jun 15 15
The Mississippi Supreme Court on June 11 denied motions for a rehearing filed by Mississippi Power Co. and state regulators related to the court's February decision invalidating rate increases for the utility's integrated gasification combined-cycle project in Kemper County. The February decision by the court ruled the Mississippi Public Service Commission had exceeded its authority in
granting millions of dollars in rate increases to help pay for the over-budget and long-delayed IGCC generation project formally known as Plant Ratcliffe. Mississippi Power has estimated the amount it has to refund ratepayers at approximately $257 million. The rate hike was approved by Mississippi regulators in 2013 to help pay for Kemper, costs for which have ballooned from an initial estimate of $2.2 billion in 2009 to a projected cost of $6.22 billion. In March, Mississippi Power and the PSC filed motions for a rehearing of the court's decision, arguing it had been based on a "misunderstanding" of the commission's authority and that the PSC does have the authority to adjudicate ratemaking and develop new ways to regulate under the state's Public Utility Act. But the court on June 11 reaffirmed its decision overturning the rate increases for Kemper and criticized the PSC for conducting "public business in private" in a prior rate settlement. Because the commission lacked the authority to enter into what the court described as a private rate settlement agreement, according to the decision, the agreement is unenforceable.
