' 1 TIIJ lullir REICH & BECKER 52 Years of Service 7419 MADISON ST. 366-0010 READ The REVIEW Commonwea/fh Edison Seeks Additional Rate Relief Commonwealth Edison Company Wednesday announced it will return to the Illinois Commerce Commission early next year to seek additional rate relief. Chairman J. Harris Ward said the increase in revenues to be requested will be disclosed when proposed revisions in rate schedules are filed with the Commission next month. He said a rate increase of less than.five percent granted by the Commission earlier this year, after prolonged hearings, provided only a portion of the price adjustment nee'ded to compensate for the impact of shdrply higher costs. The increase, he added, was the company's first general price rise in 12 years _ and followed a series of rate reductions. , ' • ' "Although we have been .subjected'to unprecedented cost pressures," Mr. Ward said, "the average price of a kilowatt-hour to Edison residential customers is still less than it was 12 years ago. Our company's performance in the fight against inflation is second to none, but we cannot continue to meet higher and higher costs without also increasing (he price of,electric service." . Mr. Ward cited particularly the,extraordinary increases in construction, costs - from $200 million'for Dresden station's two 80ii,000 kilowatt additions when originally committed in 1965 to $670 million budgeted for two 1,078,000 kilowat units for the company's newly proposed LaSalle County station. He also pointed out that taxes, wages and interest costs are at or near all-time highs. "Our interest bill on debt in 1970 will be about $56 million more than it was five years ago and, reflecting the acceleration of cost increases, almost $37 million more than it was just two years-ago," he said. According to Mr. Ward, Commonwealth Edison's construction program for the five-year period 1970-1974, as now estimated, calls for a record outlay of $2-1/4 billion. The amount includes approximately $200 millipn for projects to improve environmental control in connection with electric power production. Among the Edison projects, for improving the environment are the installation of sulfur removal processes at State Line and Will County stations; new preclpitators. at Joliet and Waukegan stations; conversion of Ridgeland station to low sulfur oil; cooling lakes at Dresden, Powerton and LaSalle stations and a special intake-discharge system to preserve lake water quality at Zlon station.
