Southern Company’s $7 billion clean coal plant to run on natural gas

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — One of the nation’s largest utilities, faced with an ultimatum from Mississippi regulators, said Wednesday that it will suspend efforts to complete a first-of-its-kind coal-fueled power plant.

The move is a blow in efforts to develop coal plants that emit less carbon dioxide, which could be key to improving the health of the nation’s coal industry.

Mississippi Power Co., a unit of Southern Co., announced it was stopping efforts at its plant in Kemper County, near the Alabama state line. The Atlanta-based utility giant said Wednesday that it could lose another $3.4 billion from the Kemper County plant if it can’t reach a more favorable settlement with regulators.
