Mississippi Power and Sierra Club talk about ruling

The Mississippi Supreme Court unanimously ruled the Public Service Commission must go back and provide more details on why commissioners eased the financial terms under which the Kemper County Power Plant could be built.

Attorney Robert Wiygul who represents the Mississippi Sierra Club says, “Mississippi Power, I think, takes the view that this is just a minor setback, but the fact is the courts don’t reverse a $2.8 Billion decision unless something was bad, wrong with it.”

“What the supreme court said here is that the public service commission did never make a finding that this was in the public interest,” Wiygul said.
