Mississippi Power on Friday added a month to the date it expects to have the Kemper energy facility operational on lignite and increased the cost.

The date was revised from Nov. 30 to Dec. 31, and Mississippi Power said it needs an additional $25 million that will be paid by the utility and Southern Company — not customers.
