Mississippi Power reach agreement on Plant Daniel scrubber project

World Coal,

Mississippi Power and the Mississippi Public Utilities Staff have reached an agreement on a portion of the company’s 2016 Environmental Compliance Overview Plan related to the Plant Daniel scrubber project.

According to the company, the plan will result in cleaner air for southeast Mississippi.

The staff agreed that the costs related to the project were reasonable.

The Plant Daniel scrubber enables the company to provide cleaner air for the region, through removing sulfur dioxide and other emissions from the use of coal to provide customers with constantly available electricity. It was placed into service and has been reliably serving Mississippi Power customers since November 2015.

Mississippi Power was granted a certificate to design, construct and operate a scrubber at Plant Daniel in 2012. The scrubber is the most significant piece of the company’s overall compliance plan. The remainder of the plan outlines environmental compliance projects at Plants Watson, Daniel and Greene County is scheduled to be addressed on 17 August.
