The Southern Company (SO) disclosed this morning that Mississippi Power and the Mississippi Public Service Commission entered into a settlement agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Mississippi Power and the Commission shall follow certain agreed-upon regulatory procedures and schedules for resolving the cost recovery matters related to the Kemper IGCC. These procedures and schedules include the following: Mississippi Power’s filing within 30 days of the Settlement Agreement of a new request to increase rates in 2013 in an amount not to exceed $172M of financing costs to be recorded to a regulatory liability to be used to mitigate rate impacts when the Kemper IGCC is placed in service; the Commission’s decision on that matter within 50 days of Mississippi Power’s request; Mississippi Power’s collaboration with the Mississippi Public Utilities Staff to file with the Commission within three months of the Settlement Agreement a rate recovery plan for the Kemper IGCC for the first seven years of its operation, along with a revenue requirement under such plan for 2014; the Commission’s decision on the rate recovery plan within four months of the filing; Mississippi Power’s agreement to limit the portion of prudently incurred Kemper IGCC costs to be included in rate base to the $2.4B certificated cost estimate, plus costs related to the lignite mine and carbon dioxide pipeline; provided that this limitation will not prevent Mississippi Power from securing alternate financing for any prudently incurred Kemper IGCC costs not otherwise recovered in any Commission rate proceeding contemplated by the Settlement Agreement; and the Commission’s completion of its prudence review of the Kemper IGCC costs incurred through 2012 within six months of the agreement.

12:01 EDTSOSouthern Company subsidiary acquires 103-MW Georgia solar project
Southern Company (SO) subsidiary Southern Power acquired the 103-megawatt Butler solar facility from Community Energy in Georgia. The project, which was initially developed by Community Energy was selected by Southern Company subsidiary Georgia Power in a competitive process through the nationally recognized Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative. The facility, which will be located on approximately 1,070 acres in Taylor County, Georgia, is expected to enter commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2016. Construction is slated to begin in September 2015, with First Solar (FSLR) managing the building, operations and maintenance of the facility. The Butler solar facility is expected to consist of more than 1 million of First Solar's thin-film photovoltaic solar modules mounted on single-axis tracking tables. The electricity and associated renewable energy credits generated by the facility will be sold under a 30-year power purchase agreement with Georgia Power, which will have the option to keep or sell the RECs, for the benefit of its customers or renewable energy programs.

Shares of Duke Energy (DUK), Southern Company (SO), Consolidated Edison (ED), Edison International (EIX), PG&E (PCG), American Electric (AEP), Dominion (D), and NextEra Energy (NEE) could return 8% or more annually in coming years, Barron's contends in a feature article.
