HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Mississippi Power filed its Kemper refund plan with the Public Service Commission this week.
The plan follows the state Supreme Court ruling that the company must refund approximately $350 million to customers for Kemper-related rate increases on bills from April 2013 to July 2015.
The plan needs to be approved following a public hearing and a Public Service Commission hearing on Aug. 6.
Mississippi Power said the average customer using 1000 kWh per month could receive an average of $650 in refunds, but also said the amount will vary from customer to customer.
Customers will have the option of receiving either a check or a bill credit, but the company said in a news release it thinks bill credits will be "safest, quickest and most efficient."
