'usa — —r—— — J2al Can rain solve Up-to-date answers to questions about tfie shortage 1 Are rains enpugnr No. Literally, too much water's gone 5 Wliere does the situation st^nd today? At best it is serious. We have been doing our best, and have been doing 80 right along, to get power from every source.,, and rush more steam-electric generators into service. But, as k stands today, no one can tell how long this critical situation will last..,or how much 'worse it will get. out of too many reservoirs. Rains now cannot be expected to replace it ;^.'.i 2 Just how bad is the drought? It's the worst water power year in our history. This season's rainfall is far below normal. The snowpack in the naountairis is scant. What snow and rain we have had has been poorly distributed—not enough of it in the area where it's needed most. And.,. to make things worse.. .this dry season follows a dry one last year-. 3 What's the drought got to do with electricity? Water is power. Water shiortage means power shortage. We iiave 14 steam-electric generiating plants, but most of California 's electricity is supplied by water. Today, our 55 hydro-electric plants need water. Our 121 reservoirs are thirsty. Some are almost empty. The drought, J too, creates unusual irrigation de- tnands in orchards and farnis. Pumping water takes still more (felectricity. That makes a tiiad problem worse. 4 bthe drought the oiy cause of the emergency? No. Actually there are many causes and the drought intensifies ' 3iem. The story, boiled dojiwQ, is this: Daring the waryeai-s we couldn't obtain priorities tia maintain our normal bluilding program. As soon as war conta:ol& were removed in 1945 we started all over again placing orders for generators, boilers, traiisform- ers and other equipment. I (k>mplex generators aren't sold like ' used cars. They mtist be built to order, piece-by-piece. The few plants in our country eqvopped to make them were crippled by strikes and other obstacles. Their production suffered. Delivery '•"'T ! i '•.-••-'• , • . " ' ' dates were missed. To niake a tough problem tougher, the de- ntand for electric power' has increased even faster than Cali- fomia's tremendous gro\ii^ in population. Just last January we oeceived the first steam-electric generator ordered before the vf Sr and re-ordered in li945. Place all these thingus together. Add the drought and the greatest migration in history. That's the emergency. 6 Will the new Shasta power help? Of course. Every bit helps. But new Shasta power alone is only a fractioii of the total needed. Our area demand is more than 2,000,000 kilowatts. Shasta is expected to supply, next month, about 75,000 additional kilowatts, and another 75,000 kilowatts later in the year. It will help but you can see it won't go far. 7 How about daylight saving time? That means more help... eiiual to about 140,000 kSowatts. But it's 801 tiiot a solution. The biggest saving, of course, is the 20% cut in use ordered by the CaUforhia Public UtiUtiM GoriiiilissiOn,' ' • " 8 What is our record of public service? Let's taice a quick look at the score; Exciept in vvartime wten w-e were refused priorities we have always built successfully ahead of demand. Our area enjbya tKe greatest fami electrificfttion ill the country. Our farms are 98% electrified.. ;far ahead of other sections. Our rates are low. During the war we supplied po#«ir to a staggering number of industries. Not one was ever shM down for lack of power. ThrbUghbut California's gi-eAteflt if^6ctii of'development electaic power in good supply^and atkmrates has played a major part. ' 9 What are we doing to solve present problems? Since the war we've been building just as fast as is huntanly spite of delayed delivery dates, material shortages 'asid the like, " •'• ' ''''''' . Right now, we're in the midst of a huge program of building hydro and steam electric plants. In the lastyearof thfe'war,'1045; we spent Over $22,500,000 on that program; in 1946, $45,000,000 and in 1947 oveV $100,000,000, Ovr 1948 construction expenditures are running at a rate exceriding $10,000,000 per montlu: We're going to provide just as much power, from as many sources, as we can... in spite of obstacles, . Here's lidw you can lend a helping hand This problem is'everybody's problem..,agriculture, industry, labor, business and holiseholders. You can add your heulp, byjrememberipg to tiurn off all lights you aren't actually u^ing.,,in the hall, on the porch, in the bathroom, in the; garage. You can keep down the use of electric heatei*s.' You can inake sure the refrigerator dboris tightly closed. 'VS'ith just a little care you can help a lot to stretch precious power. Won't you lend your helping hand ?
