Public Service Commission Passes Groundbreaking Energy Efficiency Rules

JACKSON, Miss. – Thursday the Public Service Commission (PSC) passed what they are calling groundbreaking energy efficiency rules that will affect Mississippi electric and natural gas providers. That is expected to generate $2 billion in savings for customers over the next 20 years and create 9,500 new jobs by the year 2020.

“For too long, Mississippi has ranked dead last in the nation in the area of energy efficiency,” said Public Service Commissioner, Brandon Presley. “This program will save customers money, utilize our natural resources efficiently, and create thousands of new jobs for our people.”

The new plan requires electric and gas providers service over 25,000 people to file Quick Start Plans which include customer education programs, energy audits and evaluations, rebates or other incentives on high-efficiency appliances. The goal is to promote energy conservation.
