service to farms
began more than
thirty years ago,
when lines were
being built from
Detroit to serve
people in outlying towns who
wanted our service. Farmers living
along these lines were our first rural
customers. By 1927, there were 1,338
miles of rural lines carrying service
to upwards of 5,000 farm families.
To speed rural electrification, The
Detroit Edison Company undertook
in 1928 an intensive program to
as to city residences. Men from our
Farm Service Division, with the co-
operation of County Agricultural
Agents and Michigan State College,
went out among farm families, dem-
onstrated the uses of electric power
on the farm and in the home, and
helped farmers plan for the service.
Beginning in 1928 no charge was
made for line extensions where
there were 10 or more farms per
mile. In 1933 this was reduced-to
7% farms per mile. And since 1935
service has been extended with-
out any contribution where farms
average five to the mile.
serving 7,707 farm- customers. In
the next nine years, the Company
built 4,359 miles of line and con-
nected 17,788 farms.
At the close of 1937, 87.8 per cent
of all farms in the old Detroit Edison
territorywere receiving electric serv-
ice from our lines. This percentage
is among the highest in the U.S.A.
Macomb County; where more than
97 per cent of all farms have electric
service available, isclose to our ideal.
In the new area in the Thumb of
Michigan which we began to serve
in November, 1935, progress in the
building of farm lines has been
froi the start even more rapid.
