ftfCOftD-EAGie, TRAVERSE CITY, MICH. 49684 /PRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, Consumers Power asks oka} to set gas use priorities · LANSING (UPI) -- Consumers Power Co., which supplies .i natural gas to more than 900,000 Michigan customers, Thurs- 'f day asked the Public Service Commission for permission to net up a priority system in the event it becomes necessary to curtail natural gas service. John B. Simpson, senior vice president for gas operations, said the curtailment program should be regarded solely as "prudent contingency planning." Simpson said the company does not now anticipate that it will be necessary, to-impose curtailments during/the upcoming heating season. "However, he said, it cannot · predict , "when a worsening of its gas supply situation, or an un- » anticipated increase in demand, may make it necessary to impose such curtailments." The proposed system establishes six categories of gas service, with highest priority assigned to residential custom. ers and to customers providing services essential to public ^ health and safety.
