IZA--The Malakoff News, Thursday, Dec. 3, 1981 come By JOHN H. COX Citizens of Henderson County should get accustomed to Seeing the name of Houston Lighting and Power Company (HL&P), its sister, Utility Fuels In- corporated, and parent, Houston In- dustries Inc., because to paraphrase a post World War II Ford advertisment, "they're in the county's future." A profile of what Houston Industries is might give an insight as to what ef- fect the company may have on local economies. With over 55 billion kilowatt hours, HL&P ranks nmnber six in the nation in amount of power sales. Peak demand of power is now at 10,800 megawatts. To put this number in perspective, Texas Power and IAght, the company which supplies electricity to Athens and much of the surrounding area, had 26.5 billion kilowatt hours of power sales at the close of 1980 with 5,861 megawatts of peak demand. From 1976 until today, HI2 P's growth in the area of power sales has been over 35 percent. Approximately eighty incorporated municipalities as well as about the same number of unincorporated areas are recipients of these 55 billion kilowatt hours of power. Geographically, the service area covers Harris County (Houston) and the neighboring counties of Austin, Brazoria, Fort Bend, Galveston and Waller. Within this 5,000 square mile area, HL&P sends energy to over 1.1 million individual customers. Of that total 971,000 are residential, 133,000, com- mercial, 1,700 industrial in addition to numerous cities and towns. The 35.,000 acre Maiakoff-Cayuga lignite field will become one of many dots on a map indicating where fuel is derived to fire the generating facilities needed to supply the unquenchable Trinidad School Menu Dec. 7th-! lth Monday: ~Chili dogs, baked beans, potato tots, cookies, milk.

Management of two subsidary companies of Houston Industries, Utility FueLs Inc. (UFI), and Primary Fuels Inc. (PFI), have been assigned the task of finding fuel deposits for the power plants and also, when necessary, for transporting that fuel to those plants. PFI is concerned with fuels (natural gas and oil) which, in the past, have provided up to I00 percent of the energy needed to run the generating units. Presently, 42 plants use gas, off or a combination to generate power. As the price of these fuels increased and the supply became more uncertain, other sources were turned to. Among these other sources were coal, lignite and uranium. UFI is concerned with the development of these energy fuels. From as far north as Montana, UFI personnel have discovered and in- stigated coal production. At present three coal fired power plants are on line with another scheduled to start up in 1983. So massive is the operation that UPI owns or leases amost 2,600 railroad freight cars which transport the coal from Montana and Wyoming to the plants in Texas. The Maiakoff-Cayuga field will operate as a part of UFI. Transporting coal adds to the ex- peuse of supplying electricity to HIA P's customers. Building and operating plants close to home and within short distances from fuel sup- plies is definitly the better way to go. Therefore, the parent company is in the process of building two lignite plants in Limestone County and will begin a plant near Malakoff, using the abundance of lignite owned by North American Coal Corporation. By 1967 and 1988, the Limestone facilities are scheduled to be available for peak demand; the local facility, 1989 or 1990. Projected expenditures for plant construction (including nuclear) by 1983 are almost $1 billion.
