Monday Evening, December 23, 1957. Yuletide Season Brings Record Power Demands Arrival of the Christmas season has already brought a new high in the power demand in Logansport, surpassing the peak demand registered last year or. 1 Dec. 20. The Yuletide brings a new record demand for power, a few days before Christmas, according to Robert Price, superintendent of utilities, and 1957 has been no exception. The peak in demand was reached last year just five days before Christmas, when it hit 15,100 kilowatts. That figure has now been topped several times during few weeks and la'st Monday the demand climbed to 15,500 kilowatts at 5:15 P-wi. Price explained that 4:50 o'clock in the evening ordinarily brings the peak demand, but at Christmas time the peak may come anytime between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. The utilities superintendent further explaind that the peak is reached at this time since stores are still open while people are getting home from work, using kitchen appliances and turning on Christmas tree lights and television sets at the same time. Growth of the peak demand ii demonstrated by the peak kilowatt figures for the past four years: 13,100 in 1953, 13,700 the following year, 14,600 in 1955, and 15,100 last year. How high will the peak demand go this year? While this is nearly impossible to predict exactly, light department officials have estimated that it will reach between 15,750 and 16,000 kilowatts, possible this Monday. Price pointed out that keeping up with the demand when it occurs is complicated by effort to cor.trol the usage of power supplied by the local light plant and that drawn from the Public Service Company of Indiana. A demand of 15,000 kilowatts and over is met with about 6,000 from the PSC and more than 9,000 from the local plant. Price added that the average daily cost of coal for the city power plant is approximately $900, which represents use of about 130 tons of coal per day.
