Title: 1975 year-end summary of the electric power situation in the United States

Abstract

This report presents information concerning the electric power supply, expansion of electric generating facilities, and the manufacture of heavy electric power equipment in the United States as of the end of 1975. The data are based on the 1975 year-end survey made by the EEI in cooperation with representatives of the electric power systems or power areas throughout the contiguous United States, the State of Hawaii, the nation's principal manufacturers of heavy electric power equipment, and foreign manufacturers of such equipment with orders from U.S. electric power systems. The survey covers investor-owned systems and those of governmental agencies - Federal, municipal, state, and local - and also rural electric cooperatives. The only omissions are comparatively small systems which collectively represent less than 3% of the capability of the total industry. The survey also includes industrial power installations whose operations are coordinated with the utility systems with which they are interconnected and which contribute to the public supply. It does not include any isolated industrial or institutional power installations. This is the first Year-End Summary report in which results pertaining to power system capabilities, peak loads, capability margins, and kilowatt-hour requirements are presented for each of the nine reliability councils ofmore » the National Electric Reliability Council rather than for the eight FPC Regions used previously. The National Electric Reliability Council encompasses essentially all utility systems in the United States and four Canadian provinces, but the data presented in this survey cover only the systems in the United States.« less
