Kemper refunds almost complete

All but $3.6 million of $377 million in rate refunds related to Mississippi Power Co.’s Kemper County plant are back in the hands of customers, auditors say.

The utility has complied with the refund order “in all material respects,” the Hattiesburg accounting firm of Topp McWhorther Harvey told members of the Mississippi Public Service Commission on Thursday.

The remaining money represents uncashed checks that Mississippi Power issued.
