Mississippi Power is expanding its renewable generation portfolio with an agreement to team on another utility-scale solar electric generating farm, this time with solar provider Origis Energy.
The company, and Origis, are working to develop a 52 MW solar project on 485 acres in Sumrall, Miss. pending approval by the Mississippi Public Service Commission.
“Adding a third renewable project continues the company’s commitment to having a diverse generation portfolio to help keep rates affordable for our customers,” said President and CEO Ed Holland. “This cost-effective, utility-scale solar energy project once again places the company at the forefront of the state’s energy economy.”
