Mississippi Power’s Kemper County coal plant has entered a phase of equipment testing in anticipation of startup in early 2015. The company has begun hiring permanent employees to run the facility. The plant will use lignite coal indigenous to Mississippi, and its carbon capture technology is groundbreaking for not only the U.S. coal industry but for the world. With the captured carbon dioxide from the plant going into the growing enhanced oil recovery industry in Mississippi, the byproduct benefits will go to both the electric ratepayers and throughout communities close to oil production areas. Adding a manmade carbon dioxide source to the naturally existing geologic carbon dioxide in the Jackson Dome will bring sustainability to enhanced oil recovery, an industry that has attracted huge investments and created new, good-paying energy jobs for Mississippi.  See more on MS Power story here: http://www.wlox.com/story/26048765/ms-power-conducts-tests-at-lignite-plant-begins-hiring-permanant-workers
