MS Power pushes back Kemper plant in-service date, adds $35M to price tag

The delay adds another $35 million to the project’s price tag, which now tops $7 billion. The latest problem causing yet another delay in the start-up of the Kemper County plant, is trouble with the ash removal system.
Despite the setback and additional cost, the CEO of the Southern Company remains confident in the long term viability of the plant.
