The Electric Division represents the public interest with regard to the regulation of the
two major investor-owned electric utilities in the state, Entergy Mississippi, Inc. and Mississippi Power Company.
The rates of these companies are regulated primarily through the use of formulary rate plans and special riders
approved by the Mississippi Public Service Commission.
This Division reviews periodic rate filings, petitions and other matters related to the provision of electricity and makes recommendations to the Commission. It also engages in on-going monitoring and auditing of the fuel adjustment clauses of the companies and annually reports the results to the Commission.
Although the Public Service Commission has limited regulatory authority over the electric systems of municipalities, electric cooperatives, and wholesale power generators, the Electric Division also monitors these areas in order to provide information to policy makers in the state.
