Jen Dearman

Director of Community and Economic Development City of Pascagoula

The partnership with MS Power and demographic analysis they provide is a great source of information for the City of Pascagoula. It is invaluable to be able to find specific business brands that would be highly suited with our community. The City is ecstatic in moving forward with this wealth of knowledge and only sees value in this wonderful recruitment and retention tool!

Jake Ladnier

Vice President of Manufacturing Fraternity Collection

The Commercial Development Department of MS Power Company has been instrumental in obtaining rate incentives for our Columbia, MS location. In addition, our MS Power Company representative went the extra mile in switching the electricity of our second location without any interruption, and he was able to do it the same afternoon I called him. It is always a pleasure to deal with a company, and a company's employees, that take such pride in providing a first class service. I will not hesitate to tell others how great my experience with MS Power has been.

Mercedes Caranza

Owner El Agave Mexican Restaurant

During the renovation process of my new business, I was motivated knowing that someone cared and willing to give a helping hand like Mississippi Power. Because power is a necessity, Mississippi Power Commercial Development rate discount is a great tool to help save on my power bill. It is also a great incentive to help with new business development.

Rebecca Davis

Pascagoula Main Street Manager

It is great to have a partnership with Mississippi Power Company. It is also wonderful for the company to allow their employees to engage and take active roles in helping communities along the MS Gulf Coast! The services that MPC provides to those who are looking at opening a new business from rate riders to actually being able to talk to a real person is awesome!

Getting a small business financed takes multiple layers of funding sources. Having Mississippi Power's Commercial Development incentives to be able to discuss and bring to the table in assisting a potential business owner with their financing package is extremely beneficial to us as lenders. In many cases, this extra boost can be the catalyst for a business being able to open their doors. Mississippi Power's Commercial Development staff has been extremely helpful to our organization's prospective borrowers and our clients.
