concentrated approximately half 0
the population of Michigan. It has
an electric generating capacity of
859,547 horsepower and Nerves more
than 510,000 customers, including
many largeindustrial users. it gen-
erates its power in huge steam plants
at Trcnton Channel, Connors Creek,
Delray and Marysville. It has also a
half dozen small hydro-electric plants
on the Huron river, but these togeth-
er toal only about 11,000 horsepower.
Consumers Company Larger
The Consumers Power company
covers a far broader but much less
densely populated field in central and
1western Michigan and such eastern
counties as Genesse, Saginaw, and
Bay. It dovetails into the Detroit*
Edison territory in Washtenaw, Ing-
hain and Oakland counties.
The Consumers Power company has
a generating capacity of 377,020 horse-
power and serves 263,633 customers,
among them large automobile and
other industrial plants. Steam plants
produce 203,000 horsepower of the
Consumers Power company's )cad,
while hydro-electric plants located on
the Au Sable, Mainstee, Muskegon,
Grand, and Kalamazoo rivers and sev-
eral smaller streams, have a capacity
of 169,021 horsepower.
The hydro-electric plants are var-
iable in their output because of ris-
ing and falling stream flow due to
weather conditions. In times of high
water, however, they produce excess
power over normal conditions.r
Through tiheinterconnection some of
this excess will be available for use
in the Detroit Edison system and
will thus assist in conserving coal.
Expensive Equipment Needed
The physical connection of the two
systems called for much constructive
work and a considerable amount of ex-G
pensive equipment. Because of the
fact that the Detroit Edison company
and the Consumers Power company
operate on a different voltage and fre-
quency basis, special transformers
are necessary at both endn The De-
troit Edison company has constructed
a substation at its Superior station
on the Huron river near Ypsilanti.
This contains three 15,000 kilovolt-
ampere transformers with voltage
ratio adjuster and the necessarys
lightning arresters, oil circuit break-
emrs, synchronizing and metering
The Consumers Power company has
built north of Jackson a steel outdoor
subst ation containing three 10,000
kilovolt-ampere transformers with
voltage ratio adjusters and switching,
protectiv- and metering equipment.
