PRINTING - • is the Bflseparable Compaiiioa of Achievement About thirty million dollars will be spent by The Detroit Edison Com- ( pany on new construction during 1929, according to tentative plans recently announced. "Plans are sufficiently flexible so that the construction program may be expanded or reduced to keep in step with general- business conditions, and there will be revisions of this budget as the year advances. This . budget covers construction work only) and is entirely separate and distinct from the Company's operating and mihtenance expenses. • l As detailed below, about two-thirds of the complete program is to "finish construction work already under way, and the balance will be spent ior projects to be begun during the year. ' j A large portion af the 1929 cori- struction program is neoessary to keep ahead of the rapidly t growing consumption of electricity in homes, stores, offices and factories in the 4,400 square miles served by The De- ', troit Edison Company in fDetroit and southeastern Michigan. More than j 2,000,000 people live in the area serv- ' ed by the Company, and the expected •■ growth of population during tne next . 12 months will alone exceed the entire population of Detroit during 1881, when electricity was first used for lighting. The largest Single item in the budg- " et calls for $6,100,000 for completing the construction of the first two turbine-generators of a new steam-eiec- trict plant at Delray in the west side of Detroit. This new generating plant, the third such plant on the Dei- ray site, was begun in 192Y and will not be completed until mid-summer ! of 1930. It will be sufficiently advanc- J " ed, however, for two 67,000 horse power turbine-generators to begin service in the early fall of 1929. At the Company's Connors creek steam plant, in the east side of Detroit, a new building will be begun to house very large, modern type electrical switches. The cost of this building and its equipment will ultl- ■ mately amount to about $2,500,000, but it is expected that only the substructure, possibly also the steel frame work, will be finished before the close of this year, at a cost of ' approximately 5300,000. J 1 At the Trenton channel plant, j : across the Detroit river channel from j . Grosse He, the sixth 67,U00 horse • power turbine-generator and an ad- j ■ ditional steam boiler are practically J I ready for service; however, 5350,000 I* is yet to be spent to completely finish j the work. ' At Marysville, an outdoor switching station is being built on a site across Gratiot highway opposite the generating plant. This switching station will cost nearly $350,000 and ; is being built as a protection against \ interruption by lightning and other ; normal hazards of a large system,] thus facilitating continuity of Service 1 to Port Huron and surrounding terri- , tory by providing an alternate major \ source of energy supply for these! communities. | Numerous other, though smaller, j projects at the four steam-electric plants will amount to 5750,000. j To provide for the .expected normal increase in consumption of current, it is planned to spend aDOut 55,000 - 000 for new substations in Detroit •and throughout the suhuraan terri- ! tory, and 52,000,000 more will be re- ' quired to rebuild and modernize ] many of the older substations. j "Underground lines for tne trans- ' mission of electricity from the.pbwer , houses to new substations, under- ^ ground tie lines between substations.' and "underground distribution lines in ; Detroit will cost $4,500,OUU. Overhead » lines wiU require §2,000,000 more for miscellaneous additions, betterments [ and replacements throughout the j Company's territory. j The cost of extending lines to, many new homes, new stores and new j factories, and to many of tne tarms which do not yet have the conven-. ience of electric service, will amount in all to more than 53,000,00b. This i figure covers the cost of installing meters for measuring the consumption of electricity, and the cost of line transformers for reducing the voltage to the level of supply to residential and commercial customers. It is expectted that about 35,000 new- customers will be _added to the Company's lines during the year. Extensions to these new customers and replacements of poles_ for existing lines will require the setting of more than 50,000 poles duriner 1929. The Company's centval heating system, which furnishes steam for heating in the downtown business district of Detroit and as far north as the Grand "boulevard, will be supplement-, ed by an additional 4,145 horsepower boiler at the Beacon street plant 3,t a cost of 5365,000. Also, the first unit of a new coaling station, to cost $321,000, will be built-on Dequindre street as a third coal-supply base for the Company's heating plants. Other expenditures by the heating de^- partment will total about 5300,000. The Port Huron gas division of The Detroit Edison Company, which already supplies gas to Port Huron, Marysville, St. Clair, Marine City and Algonac, will spend $675,000 to further extend its service. The gas plant .at Marysville will be increased in ■output* "and "the gas 'transmission mains extended to New Baltimore, Anchorville, Smith's Creek, Memphis, Richmond, Armada, Romeo and New Haven. An additional $100,000 will be spent for betterments to present gas equipment and mains in territory already served. A great variety of other itmes, individually rather small and uninteresting but together amounting to a very'large sum, makes up the balance of the construction budget. There are projects such as branch offices and warehouses, land purchases for new substations, new warehouses, offices, etc., in various communities in the territory served. Also, there are allowances for the purchase of trucks, tractors, automobiles, furniture and fixtures and all kinds of construction equipment. The cost of planning, engineering, drafting, and other general expense necessary to carry out a large construction program completes the Company's .budget, • During 1929 the Company expects to add 1,400 new electric customers in its Ypsilanti district, which includes Tpsilanti and the territory along the Huron river from a point just west of Ann Arbor, down to New Boston and west from New Boston to Manchester township. To give service to these additional customers it will cost the Company about $25,000 for line extensions, service connections, meters, etc. New farm line extensions will cost an additional 580,000, of which a portion will be paid by the customers. The highway lighting program for 1929 in this district involves some $10,000 and street lighting betterments in Milan and Belleville will Cost $1,200. To improve operating conditions and service, $66,000 will be spent for rerouting and rebuilding overhead lines in the vicinity of Milan, Saline, Belleville, Ypsilanti, French Landing and Brownstown. To provide additional capacity to take care of expected increased business, new substations will be .erected at Milan and Ypsilanti at a cost of $142,000. The substations at Saline and Augusta will be completed at an additional cost of $83,000 and 53,000 will be spent for an addition to the Superior substation. The local sales office at Ypsilanti will be remodelled at a cost of about 55,000. Super Comedy-Drama Billed for "Liberty Theatre Next Wednesday.
