Since the original Carolina Power St Light Com
pany was organized in 1908 with a total gene
rating capacity of only 6,330 h.p., a policy of
anticipating future power needs has been closely
By 1926, when the present Carolina Power tt Light
Company was formed, the generating capacity
had increased to 165,000 h.p. Steadily this ca
pacity has been increased, always in advance of
actual needs, until, at the present time, the Com.
pany has an available capacity of 425,000 h.p.
While present facilities are adequate for present
needs, the territory is growing rapidly and the
demands for electricity are steadily increasing. In
keeping with our policy, $3,000,000.00 is being in
vested in a sew steam electric generating plant
which will provide an additional 40,000 h.p., mak
ing a total of 465,000 h.p. available.
In undertaking this new construction we are not
unmindful of the importance of this territory in
our nation's Preparedness plans and of increased
National Defense needs for electric power.
Indeed, we are building today to meet tomorrow's
needs of our territory and nation I
