Our Victory Against the Mississippi Power’s Kemper Coal Plant Retruns to PSC For Re-Evaluation

It is a happy day to see that the Kemper County Demonstration Lignite Coal Plant is being reevaluated by the PSC per court reversal.  It will be interesting to see how Leonard Bentz and Lynne Posey explain the public value in carbon dioxide capturing, transport, and storage to the Mississippi ratepayer.

In the wake of the latest exposure of the United Nations fraudulent global warming science, the Sustainable Development plans is no doubt  at risk as well.  In order to substantiate the need to capture carbon dioxide the three Mississippi Public Service Commissioners will need to prove the science behind the Kyoto Protocols of the United Nations. Southern Company is voluntarily following the United Nation’s Kyoto Protocols to implement their Agenda 21  to reduce energy usage via excessive energy costs.  This was clearly to be an experiment of behavior modification.

We need to celebrate and get right back to work because Kemper County Coal plant is moving forward and will surely work with the Obama administration and Steven Chu to find any loop-hole to keep the money pit going on the backs of the people. I say pull the plug.

Presley Issues Statement on Kemper County Coal Plant

March 16, 2012

Today Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s reversal of  Mississippi Power Company’s Kemper County Coal Plant:

Today’s 9-0 decision by the Mississippi Supreme Court reversing the $2.8 billion Kemper County Coal Plant is a major victory for each and every customer of Mississippi Power Company and deals a serious blow to the company’s corporate socialism.

In this case, Mississippi Power Company gave new meaning to the phrase “We got the gold mine, they got the shaft”.

I’ve argued consistently that customers of Mississippi Power Company have been mistreated by the company hiding rate impacts in this case and by putting their shareholders above their customers.

This plant is untried technology. The shareholders have no risks while the customers have all the risks along with a 45% rate hike to boot. The company also wanted to raise rates before the plant produced any electricity. I believe in “pay as you go”, I just don’t believe you should pay BEFORE you go.

I personally wrote multi-page dissents in this case and am pleased today to see that those arguments were not in vain.

This $2.8 billion case comes back now to the commission for further review.

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.

  1. MS Conservative says:

    Mr. Patriot Conservative sounds like someone who has a personal interest in this boondoggle. $2.88 billion for 260 jobs sounds like one of Obama’s ideas. There are rumored to be close to 1000 construction jobs on the project. How is that working out for the residents of Kemper Co? They still have 14%+ unemployment. Most of those jobs didn’t go to locals.

    The real travesty here if and when the plant is completed and comes online, it will produce a measly 560MW. It’s the most expensive generating facility that Mississippi ratepayers have ever had to pay for (Louisiana shared the cost for Grand Gulf). And sadly, it will be one of the smallest baseload plants in the country.

  2. the obama regime and the EPA hates Mississippi Power’s Kemper Coal Plant I say to damn Bad We need Jobs Here in America

    • Steven Chu sent letters to the PSC to persuade them to accept the Mississippi Power terms.
      1. The technology is experimental, unproven, demonstration and may never work yet the ratepayer has to begin paying for today.
      I say make the Power Co and their investors pay for building the risky technology and if it works and works economically, then charge us.
      2. The carbon Dioxide capturing provides no benefit to the public, produces ((NO)) electricity and the PSC should not make us pay for that either. If MS Power or Southern Company wants to try a get rich-quick-quick scheme based a false science of global warming, then they can choose to do so with their own dime.
