PSC LEONARD BENTZ CALLED TO ACTION Against FRAUD

PSC Leonard Bentz;

If you truly want to save Mississippians money in rates then simply remove citizen funding for the CO2 Capturing on the Lignite Coal Plant until the science has been reviewed and proven as accurate.  Why should Mississippi pay for a fraudulent global warming scam?  We cannot give into fraud and it is your duty to know the difference and take action.

A new year could bring increased rates for Mississippi Power Co. customers.

The company filed three requests for a combined 11.35 percent increase to the Mississippi Public Service Commission on Tuesday.

If approved, any changes will go into effect in 2012.

Southern District PSC Commissioner Leonard Bentz said Mississippi Power customers are paying far less for electricity than they did in 2009 and his goal is to keep utility bills as low as possible. He said the filings are under review.

“I am going to make sure that I go through each piece with a fine-tooth-comb,” he said. “They are not a package deal and may not all be approved.”

Mississippi Power serves approximately 188,000 customers in 23 southeast Mississippi counties.

The Certified New Plant A filing requests an 11.66 percent increase that would cover financing costs for the Kemper Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) Project.

“The Kemper IGCC Project is on schedule and progressing well. When completed, this plant will generate electricity for customers at a significantly lower cost than any of the alternatives,” said Tommy Anderson, vice president of Generation Development.

Tommy Anderson, Please put that in a contract for the people, that we will have lower rates for the customers in Mississippi. That is a lie and am not afraid to call it out.  The least costly plan would be to stop following the Kyoto Protocols created by the United Nations that Southern Company is willingly following.

“The recovery of financing costs during construction will save customers hundreds of millions of dollars in additional financing charges over the life of the plant.”

Please compare costs if we did not invest in the fraudulent science scam that CO2 kills people and needs to be contained.

In addition to the CNP-A filing, Mississippi Power has requested a 2.20 percent decrease in the amount it recovers in its annual fuel filing. Mississippi Power’s fuel costs are recovered from customers on a dollar-for-dollar basis. The company does not earn a profit on the fuel used to generate electricity.

Company spokeswoman Cindy Duvall said lower gas prices at the pump allowed the company to request a 2.20 percent decrease in the amount it recovers in its annual fuel filing.

“When Mississippi Power has the lower costs, we pass those on to our customers for decrease on their bill. We don’t make money on our fuel costs,” she said.

What about making huge profits on global warming caused by CO2 science fraud.  That is somehow OK to charge us for? 

The company’s annual PEP filing (base rate) indicates an increase of 1.89 percent. In existence since 1986, PEP represents the costs the company incurs to ensure customers can continue to receive reliable electric service.

“This represents our performance evaluation plan and customers refer to it as a base rate,” Duvall said. “It’s an increase of 1.89 percent. That represents reliability and customer service so when customers flip the switch, something happens.”

About Mississippi Coal
Welcome! It is an honor to have a moment of your day. We are in favor of all forms of energy. We care about the future of this great Nation and seek to expose the corruption behind the Kemper County CO2 capturing experimental Lignite coal Demonstration unit. Our Chief complaint is that the rate payers pay for it in their electric bills. The CO2 capturing does not produce electricity so therefore serves no purpose for the ratepayers. It is a money scam for Mississippi power and Southern Company. Mississippi is first in following the (United Nation's Agenda 21) Kyoto Protocols for the regulation of carbon dioxide, a gas we breathe out of our lungs, by forcing the people to pay for it through energy bills and taxes. Through the process of investigating the Kemper County Coal Plant issue, we feel criminal acts have been committed and that soon FCC violations will be added to the offenses. People are being lied to, deceived, or misled and therefore are fully cooperating with this Lignite experiment. "This blog or any content may contain copyrighted material.
