The Bulls Should Play

A lot of people think we should stop building power
plants. And we don't blame them. Because every time
we build one, the rates go up.
We re not happy about building power plants
either. But the truth of the matter is, we have to. It's
our job to provide the electricity bur customers need,
when they need it. And the demand for electricity
keeps increasing all the time, thanks to population
growth, industrial expansion to provide needed jobs,
and an increased standard of living. A standard of
living that includes color television sets, washers,
dryers, disposals, you name it; chances are it's done
So as long as those needs exist and continue to
grow.thereH always be a heed for more power plants.
We can't stpp new. pwrr, plant constmction.but we
can slow it down. And in doing so keep your rates
from rising so fast. In fact, we can save more than $10
billion in construction costs by the year 1990. And a
whole lot more money in decades to come.
It all has to do with something called Peak Demand
and Load Management.
Customer demand for electricity isn't the same all the
time. It has peaks and valleys.Tne highest demand for
electricity the peak usually occurs on either the
hottest or coldest weekday of the year. In addition to all
the normal uses of electricity in homes, businesses and
industries, that's when heating or air-conditioning
systems the biggest electric users of all are running
full blast. j
The following graph shows what happened on
January 11 of this year when you and other customers
used the most electricity in the 78-year history of
Duke Power. lj-
can be accomplished through a series of plans we've
been working on for years.
A bt of these plans deal with uhmg electricity
more efficiently in factories and businesses. And a lot
of them can be implemented right in your own home.

whose homes meet stringent energy efficient

a year for the privilege of installing remote
control off-on devices on electric water heaters and
central air-conditioning systems.These devices will
enable us to interrupt service to either or both of
these appliances during emergency situations. And
in most cases, the interruption will go unnoticed by
the custome&Once the crisis has passed, power will
automatically be restored. (Available only in limited
areas at this time, but coming to your neighborhood
in the future.)
Load Management can play an important role in
holding downyoutfutMre electric bills.
But in order forit to work to the benefit of all of
us, we're going to need the cooperation and participa
tion of thousands of Duke Power customers.

Duke Power has to have enough generating capac
ity to meet peak demand. Even if it only occurs for a
few moments. But because that peak demand keeps :
growing, we have to build more power plants.
But if we could control that peak.it wouldn't go up
so fastWfe wouldn't haW to build so many plants. And
Eu wouldn't have to pay for so many. That s what
tad Management is all about.
Load Management is designed to keep the peak
