Transcript Will there always be enough energy to light up every new home and apartment here? Always? A look at new housing- from your Light Company If you want to see how healthy any community is in terms of economic stability and growth, just take a fast look at the number of new homes and apartments being built each year. It's very revealing. And here in our part of the country, residential construction is unmatched by any other place in the nation. For the past four years in a row, the Houston-Gulf Coast has been number one in housing starts. And the National Association of Home Builders predicts that 1977 will see Houston top the list again. Fact: 24,000 single-family homes and 21,000 apartment units are predicted for the year. That's 45,000 new residences this year. Think of it, a brand-new city the size of Pasadena, Texas! The more than 110,000 new homes and 121,000 apartment units we've seen spring up here in the past six years have been part and parcel of this area's surging prosperity. New housing takes a lot of energy. Energy to mill and manufacture building components. Energy to frame and build. Energy to run the home after a family moves in. The question is, will there be enough? How much more energy? That's where we come in. Your Light Company has the responsibility of forecasting the future electric demands of the community now — and building ahead so there will be enough for everyone in the years to come. It isn't easy. The Houston-Gulf Coast has witnessed tremendous growth in the past six years. The population has soared 25 Houston SMS A Population 2,509,000 2,408,000 2,293,000 2,198,000 2,127,000 2,055,000 1,999,316 1970 1971 1972 1973 1974 1975 1976 Source: Houston Chamber of Commerce percent. That's 500,000 new residents. And by 1985, the Houston Chamber of Commerce sees 800,000 more. The Houston area will then have a Residential KWH Sales (Billions) 8.43 8.53 7.70 7.89 7.37 6.62 5.80 1970 1971 1972 1973 1974 1975 1976 population topping 3.3 million. To keep up with this explosive growth, your Light Company will have to produce more than twice as much electricity for residences in 1985 as we did in 1973. Even with everyone conserving electricity like never before, more electricity will still be needed. To match the area's growth and because electricity will take over many jobs previously done by natural gas, which gets harder to come by each year. Our work cut out for us. To meet the increased need for electricity, we'll have to build 4.8 million kilowatts of new generating capacity between now and 1985. That's more than our entire system could supply just 10 years ago. And even that may not be enough unless we all work at conserving energy. That's why we're helping our customers use energy wisely. Why we're working with builders to develop more energy-efficient new homes. And why we're providing information and advice on methods to make older homes more efficient, too. The energy advice is free. But the cost of expansion isn't. In just three years we'll have to spend more than $ 1 billion on new power plants and other facilities. And yet another $ 1 billion for fuel. So we can't supply electricity at the price we used to. But we're working hard to keep enough coming. Not just for new homes and apartments, but for all the other ways you use it. The Light company Houston Lighting & Power DAILY BREAKTHROUGH NOVEMBER 19, 1977 PAGE 33
