Power: Advantages all the way down the line.
With 45 to 50 megawatts in current excess capacity, Hancock County’s power resources are substantial and substantially advantageous in costs, thanks to a uniquely superior sourcing and distribution arrangement. Hancock purchases power through Coast Electric, a member of the South Mississippi Electric Power Association, a consumer-owned, not-for-profit cooperative that exists solely to provide affordable and dependable power for its 11 members. That insures the lowest possible cost of power. In turn, that low-cost power is delivered through the transmission grid of Mississippi Power, a Southern Company. The result is superb service—infrastructure excellence assured by the resources of the Southern Company, the world’s largest utility holding company, combined with the committed corporate partnership of Mississippi Power, powering South Mississippi prosperity since 1925. The result is quality all the way down the line: transmission, capacity and significant cost advantages.
Gas: Efficient and environmentally friendly.
Founded 150 years ago, CenterPoint initially created natural gas from oyster shells and coal for its first customers in a Texas Gulf Coast village. Since that time, the company has grown into the Southeast’s leading gas supplier, serving more than 3 million customers and nearly 250,000 commercial and industrial companies. Today, CenterPoint customers enjoy high energy efficiency as well as comfort, plus the comfortable feeling of knowing greenhouse gases and nitrous oxide levels are being reduced. The world’s old-new energy, natural gas is clean and efficient, great for today and tommorrow.
Water and wastewater: Working for you, with you.
Water and wastewater treatment are provided by local community providers, by the Kiln Utility and Fire District and by the Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission. The benefits of locally and municipally sourced water are numerous, beginning with enhanced affordability and excellent capacity. Hancock County is committed to keeping water—and profits—flowing easily to local industry.
Telecommunications: A leading edge.
While Hancock industry enjoys the choice of three of the nation’s leading telecommunications providers—C-Spire, AT&T and Verizon—the Stennis Airpark also offers the enhanced speed and connectivity of C-Spire fiber.
