Electric bills expected to decrease

GULFPORT — Southern District Public Service Commissioner Leonard Bentz announced that Mississippi Power Company has filed its annual fuel cost adjustment request. If approved, Bentz said he expects an average 11.3 percent decrease in electricity bills during 2010.

Each year, the Mississippi Public Service Commission evaluates Gulfport-based Mississippi Power’s fuel purchases to ensure that ratepayers are getting the most inexpensive, reliable fuel available.

“Anytime we can be a part of decreasing someone’s electric bill, I welcome the opportunity with open arms,” Bentz said.
