At the conclusion of the program ho presented tliree choice 'plants as a gift to the club, and said vit was his earnest desire that the Garden Club should have the /privilege of securing Albert Wil- "gon, a noted horticulturist, for a •'isrogram at some later date.

VISITED CITY LAST WEEK : Mr. and,Mrs. George Pokorny were visitors in San Francisco for: Several c^ays, shopping for furnish-: lugs for their .new home, which, they are building on Jones street; FACTS ABOUT flWER CURTAILMENT A STATEMENT BY p. e. AND E. Californio, particularly in the central and aoulbcrii nreas served. by the Company, is faced with a drought of unprecedented pro. ptartions. In the Bakcrsfiold area, for example, rainfall Ihis Ecasoii has been less than 20 per cent • of normal. Most of this scason*s scant precipitation in the wotersheds of California came last (nil and, what remains in the mountains in the form of snow is only about half of what it was in 1931, the driest year of record. The drought has had the double effect of drastically reducing, the amoiint of water . power available and at the same time creating a large an^ completely unprecedented irrigation pumping demand. It is estimated that this : pumping demand exceeds normal by at least 250,000 horsepower. This is equivalent to the combined power demand of the cities of Sacramento, Stockton, Fresno, Merced, San Jose and Berkeley. Power Saved \sV^ater Saved . In order, to conserve water, we ran our steam electric generating plants at full capacity all la.st year. By doing this we were able to effect a carry-over of about 50 per c^nt of our storage capacity—well over the normal carry, over. Unseasonable pumping demands have made heavy inroads on that storage, and power curtailment has become necessary to prevent further depletion of stored water. The City of San Francisco and other electric producing agencies face similarly severe drought problems. The City of Son Francisco already has found it necessary to reduce its power output to conserve water. War Delays Expansion This winter ^B drought occurs at a time when the Company's power reserves are at a minimum. Wartime restrictions on construction, sttortages nf materials and the prolonged postwar strikes greatly delayed the delivery of new generating oiiuipment. When the war started, the Company had on order two large steam electric generators which were to commence operation in 1944. "Work on those generators was stopped in 1941 for the duration of the war by order of the War Production Board. Promptly after wartime rcstrictfon.s were ended the Company restored the orders for these war-delayed generators and followed this with orders for a number of additional hydro and steam electric plants. New Generating Plants Hue ' "Wo have just received the first sttam electric generator reordered in 1945. This new lOO.OOO-horecpower unit is now being installed in our Kei^n plant near llakersiield. We expect to place irin operation in April. Wc will also add 125,000 horsepower in the new Electra and West Point pla'nts on- the Mokelumne River this year, and 300,000 additional horsepower at Statiou "P" in San Francisco. In all, 525,000 horsepower of tiew generoting capaci ity will be installed in the next twelve months on the P. G. and E. System. Delay experienced by the Bureau of Recla. • motion in installing the first two additional geherators at Shasta Dam has further aggra- • vaied the sitiiation. These units of 100,000 horsepower each were, installed during'the war at Grand Coulee Dam. In early 1946 they were moved to Shasta Dam. They jwere scheduled to commence aperi'tion in the summer of 1947 before any other new plants conld be constructed in the area in the postwar'pei'iod. 'This scbedale was not met. The first of these generators is only now'about ready for optr- ation and the second ig expected tobb reiidy in three months. , . ;' Cpnstruet'lOh Program The Company has had underway for over two years a hugrf •'eonslruction program to bring 1,400,000 horsepower of new generating capacity to the area;,"We ar/doing everything possible to speed that'program^ In 194S. the last war year, we spent $22,526,000 on,-;new construction. In 194iS we spent $43,000,000. In 1947 we spent over $100,000,000. At the present time our construction eicpenditnres exceed 10 million dollars a month. During the next 12 months alone our construction plus the additions at Shasta will aggregate more than 725,000 new horsepower. Hope for Rain Diminishes The power situatibn will remain critical until these additionsi are completed unlets relief comes through a protracted period cf heavy rainfall in the valleys and a deep inow- pack in the mountains. Hope for such relief diminishes each day- The drought emergency anc the public interest requirl the fullest W operation with the power eurtailment orders of. the California Public Utilities Commis. sion. Moderate curtailment now may well forestall more drastic curtailment later., Power producing 'agencies are cooperating- ' in a regional power pool to make the most of available resources. The public can be assured that we have done an4 will continue to do everything possible, to meet the emergency and to keep curtailment at a minimum. The Company is appreciative of the cooperation it is receiving from the public. Pacific Gas and' Electric Company. C. Bartlett Division Manager North Bay, Division
