JACKSON, Miss. (AP) Entergy Corp. customers in Mississippi will pay $22.3 million more over the next nine months, as the company recoups more for expenses.

The rate increase was approved unanimously Tuesday by the Mississippi Public Service Commission.

The rate increase would mean an additional $2.74 a month for residential customers using 1,000 kilowatt hours. Federal figures show the average Entergy Mississippi customer uses more power.

It's the third rate increase in a year for Entergy Mississippi. Commissioners in December approved an increase to cover higher natural gas costs and the purchase of a power plant. In January, commissioners approved an increase to buy part of the Grand Gulf nuclear plant from sister company Entergy Arkansas.

Entergy Corp., based in New Orleans, serves 437,000 customers in 45 counties in Mississippi's western half.
