State court reverses Southern Co. coal project approval

The Mississippi Supreme Court on March 15 reversed an approval for a Southern Co. $2.8 billion coal gasification project in Mississippi.

In a 9-0 vote, the state supreme court said the Mississippi Public Service Commission’s May 2010 approval failed to satisfy state law that the plant would benefit the utility’s customers, and sent the case back to the PSC.

Mississippi Power is already constructing the 582 MW integrated gasification combined-cycle (IGCC) power plant, which has been awarded more than $680 million in federal grants and tax incentives, including $270 million from the U.S. Department of Energy’s clean coal power initiative.
