Kemper County Coal Gasification Plant

Mississippi Power Company has gotten approval from the Mississippi Public Service Commision to build an experimental coal gasification plant in Kemper County.  But, in the face of new and abundant sources of natural gas, is coal the best alternative for the ratepayers in this region?  Although ground has been broken, more questions than answers seem to exist.  We put together some thoughts on the topic in an article published in the Clarion Ledger on May 13, 2012.  A follow up article on the same subject that quoted our article was published in the Northside Sun on May 17, 2012.
