Mississippi Power is leading the future of energy in Mississippi by expanding our energy portfolio and reducing our environmental impact while continuing to provide safe and reliable energy to the communities we serve. We're collaborating with three solar energy businesses and the U.S. Navy on three utility-scale solar facilities in the company's service territory that will generate more than 105 MW of electricity, enough to power more than 15,000 homes for a full year.

As Mississippi's largest partner in renewable energy, we're proud to support the state's economy and solar growth. Solar generation is a cost-effective power source that stabilizes prices for our customers and benefits the environment.
