Topazi left Mississippi Power in 2010 for its parent company. He was CEO when MPC gained PSC approval for the Kemper County coal plant. The plant is scheduled for completion in 2014, assuming the Sierra Club’s latest legal challenges are unsuccessful.
Southern Co. documents spell out a consulting agreement the company reached with Topazi. After his Aug. 1 retirement, Topazi will earn $1.7 million for consulting services rendered between then and Dec. 31, 2013, when the agreement expires.
