Environmental Stewardship

Our state is home to a diverse selection of wildlife and natural resources. Mississippi Power has a longstanding history of fostering partnerships to restoring habitats, protecting ecosystems and wildlife, and educating publics of all ages on the importance of preserving our natural resources.

Whether it is on the job or as a volunteer, our employees actively provide leadership at all levels of environmental causes in our communities throughout Southeast Mississippi. Removing trash from our rivers, enhancing habits for threatened or endangered species, and helping to preserve scenic acreage for generations to come are just some of the ways that we help in protecting these precious resources.
