Transcript New Power Service The continued industrial growth of any city is dependent to a very large extent upon cheap and adequate electric power facilities, and in this respect Houston occupies a position comparable to any city in the United states. The capacity of the Houston Lighting & Power Company is 32,500 KW. Development plans have been financed and completed by the company, which call for the building of three new units, each unit to contain two generating turbines with a capacity of 40,000 KW, making a total production capacity of 152,500 KW. Work has already started on the first unit for this new station and a building 300 feet long and 100 feet wide is now under construction. A total expenditure of $10,000,000 is involved in this development. This is one of the largest electrical developments in the South and its early completion assures adequate power supply and an ultimate power rate for industries as low as any in the country. Some idea of the growth being experienced by the city of Houston is gained by the following table showing the the increase in consumption of electrical energy over a period of the last seven years.
