Mississippi Power continuously invests in improvements to build and maintain a safer, stronger and more reliable power grid.
We’re working to incorporate smart grid technologies and self-healing networks that can automatically isolate problems and restore service to affected areas in a matter of seconds, to get the lights back on faster for our customers.
Our service territory is prone to impacts from Mother Nature, including thunderstorms, tornadoes and hurricanes. To ensure we are prepared in the event of a storm, we are hardening our infrastructure, making physical changes to reduce the impact from storm damage due to high winds, flooding and falling trees.
By elevating substations in flood-prone areas and installing additional automated devices on the system, we are making our grid less susceptible to impacts from storms, which will reduce the length of customer outages following a storm event.
Watch this video to see how we have worked diligently to strengthen and enhance our grid to improve our ability to restore power safely and more efficiently.
Stronger System, Shorter Outages
