At Mississippi Power, we believe the key to meeting growing energy demands is having a diverse portfolio of energy sources. Diversifying our resources – coal, natural gas, and solar energy – allows us to deploy innovative ways to generate clean, reliable and cost-effective electricity, while avoiding an overreliance on one fuel source and staying environmentally responsible. We consider a range of energy sources to balance energy supply with our growing customer demand. By carefully forecasting energy needs and securing the most economical sources available, we are able to operate our power plants at industry-leading level of reliability.
Providing safe, reliable electricity always comes first. That’s why our team of skilled employees works every day to manage and maintain about 7,000 miles of Mississippi Power lines to ensure the safe delivery of electricity to homes and businesses across southeast Mississippi.
Our system benefits both Mississippi Power and our customers. For our customers, they experience improved reliability and efficiency of power. For the company, we are able to lower our operating costs as well as better manage our demand.
