PIRGIM presents plan
to ~ease gas depletion

Students appeal for

---_"

By TIM SCHICK
A proposal aimed at slowing
the depletion of the state's gas
reserves through the implemen-
tation of residual and industrial
natural gas priorities was pre-
sented to the Public Interest Re-
search Group in Michigan
(PIRGIM) yesterday.
The proposal, submitted in
connection with a Consumers
Power Company rate increase

request, seeks to set in motion
the planning necessary to "pro-
vide as smooth a transition as
feasible away from the present
low-priority uses" of natural
gas.
A C C 0 R D I N G to the
report, cost incentives based on
the priority and efficiency of
the gas will help conserve fuel
reserves.

Among the proposals are:
-charging different rates for
residential heating and non-
heating uses of gas; with a sur-
charge for the use of excessive
amounts of fuel;
-no gas installations in new
homes which are inadequately
insulated.
-surcharges for gas instal-
lation in less fuel efficient sin-
gle story unit dwellings;
-incentives to encourage in-
dustries to recover and utilize
waste heat;
--provide incentives for com-
mercial establishments which
reduce amount gas- they use;
and
-encourage businesses to
turn heat down to 65 degrees
and air conditioners up to 78
degrees.
The proposal warns that nat-
ural gas is limited and should
be carefully controlled to pro-
vide "maximum social bene-
fit."
tn order to provide this so-
cial benefit, PIRGIM is also
asking for graduated rates bas-
ed on income. This would give
breaks to low income families
who pay the greatest percent-
age of their income to utilities.
