Va. 304 - 725 - 5511 for Potomac Edison customers i i in West V rg nia MANDATORY RESTRICTIONS IN USE OF ELECTRICITY The West Virginia Public Service Commission has directed the immediate implementation of a state- wide "Emergency Energy Operating Plan" which calls for restrictions in the use of electricity. This order by the Commission is based on its finding that "a potential energy emergency exists in West Virginia because of a serious continuing decline in coal reserves at generating stations of certain electric public utilities serving West Virgim'" The emergency plan directs utilities to implement certain steps as coal stockpiles reach certain levels. Coal supplies have now declined to below the level and, the PSC order requires the following steps: (1) Request all customers to reduce their load by at least 10% and preferably to a level which is just sufficient to meet only their essential human needs. (2) Request the reduction of all outdoor lighting to the minimum level necessary for life and property protection, elimi- nation of all advertisement lighting except for a single luminalre to indicate commer- cial facilities open after dark, and reduction by 50% of the number of elevators and escalators. (3) Curtatilment of electrical energy for enter- tainment, recreational, and sporting activ. ities. (4) Curtail industrial and commercial customers who have a monthly energy use in excem of 75,000 kilowatt.hours to levels approxi- mately 90% of the customers' corresponding , months' use in the previous year. Customers who fail to observe this requirement will, after 24 hours actual written notice from the utility, be subject to termination of service but will have the right to appeal such termination or such notice to the commission. Facilities whose function is to provide life-support, national, state, or local security, or essential public services should strive to meet the curtailment level indicated, but shall not be required to do 8o. Additional curtailment of electric use by com- mercial and industrial customers is required by the emergency plan as coal stockpiles reach lower levels. The company will advise and give notice to those customers as appropriate. The Commission's plan calls for the implementation of other steps at previous levels of coal supply and these have already been taken by Potomac Edison and continue in effect. The Commission plan supersedes the previously announced plan filed by Potomac Edison. If we are to continue even the most essential services to the public, we will need the full co- operation of every segment of the public. We earnestly solicit that cooperation. Every reduction in electrical use, every kilowatt.hour saved helps to prolong the time when more drastic curtail. merits become necessary. n Potomac Edison Part of the Allegheny Power System
