Miss. utility sending credits to customers

LUCEDALE — Singing River Electric Power Association is returning $3 million in revenue to current members.

Company officials say the amount the current member receives will be based on kilowatt-hour sales billed between Dec. 7, 2010, and Jan. 6, 2011. The average residential customer will receive a credit of about $45-$60 on their bill.

The Mississippi Press reports the credit is a result of increased revenue brought about by the unseasonably sustained cold weather the region experienced in January and February of 2010, as well as the hot summer.

Singing River Electric is an electric distribution cooperative serving 70,409 members in Jackson, George, Greene, Perry, Wayne, Stone and Harrison counties in Mississippi as well as Washington and Mobile counties in Alabama.
