Mississippi Power CEO’s departure due to withholding Kemper information from regulators
Southern Co.’s board of directors voted Monday to name G. Edison “Ed” Holland the utility’s new leader. Holland replaces Ed Day, who has been CEO since 2010. Day has spent a total of 30 years with Southern Co.
The change will be effective immediately. Holland will be “responsible for the operations of Mississippi Power, including the overseeing the continued construction of the Kemper County energy facility,” said a company press release.
Southern Co. gave no reason for Day’s departure, but it comes about a week after the Mississippi Public Service Commission learned that Day had ordered that documents containing details of when the utility knew about cost overruns at the Kemper County coal plant be withheld from regulators.
