Save money on your Mississippi Power bill! We’ll show you all the tips and tricks you need to save as much money as possible on your next Mississippi Power bill!
Take advantage of Mississippi Power’s billing options!
With Mississippi Power, there are many ways to manage your monthly bills. You can choose whether or not to receive paper bills, enroll in budget billing or use another billing option.
Budget Billing averages your annual consumption so you can pay consistent amounts each month. This helps you avoid the seasonal spikes in summer and sometimes winter. You’ll pay roughly the same amount every month, keeping your bill predictable and easy.
Third Party Notification ensures that another party, such as a neighbor or relative, receives a duplicate copy of any disconnect notice you may receive. This is especially helpful for the elderly, those that are ill or people who are frequently away from home.
Choose how you receive your bills. Mississippi Power offers paperless billing, large-print bills and even braille bills for those with sight disabilities.
Just call (800) 532-1502 for assistance with any of these options!
Get help paying your Mississippi Power bill!
If you’re having a tough time making your payments, Mississippi Power has options for you! Programs like Bill Discount, Bill Extender, LIHEAP and Project Share exist to help you get through tough times with your power on.
Bill Discount is a program for low-income families who receive Social Security Income (SSI) or Temporary Aid for Needy Families (TANF). Families who receive either of these funds can receive a $0.57 discount per day on their Mississippi Power electric bill. You cannot apply for this discount until you have been a Mississippi Power customer for three months. See the other terms and conditions by clicking here.
Bill Extender provides an extended due date for those who only get paid once per month. This allows your bill to be paid anytime before the 5th of the month.
Project Share is a Mississippi Power program that helps customers in need by providing a grant of up to $300 per year toward their electric expenses. These funds are available to the elderly, handicapped, mentally disabled and others who are having difficulty. Call (855) 847-0555 for assistance applying for this program.
LIHEAP is a federal program that provides qualified low-income customers with energy assistance. You don’t need to have a shut-off notice to get help! Through this program, you can receive bill payment assistance and/or weatherization services. These funds are administered by local community action agencies, including Jackson County Civic Action, Multi-County Community Service Agency, and Pearl River Valley Opportunity.

Need to prevent a service disconnection?
Enroll in the LIVE (Lines Into Vital Equipment) program if you rely on specialized medical equipment, such as kidney machines, respiratory equipment or breathing monitors. This will flag your account so Mississippi Power knows to keep your power intact whenever possible. This program does NOT prevent disconnection due to nonpayment or uncontrolled outages.
