Page 14 - Wednesday, January 9, 1980 Ambitious new PG&E program In a move to slash California's dependence on cosily foreign fuel oil and to conserve natural gas, Pacific Gas and Electric Company today announced it will sharply expand what already is the nation's most intensive energy conservation program during 1980. The company's energy- saving effort is expected to save about 412 million kilowatt-bours of electricity and 76 million therms of natural gas next year, said Michael Mertz, PG&E manager of energy con- servation and services. These targets are equivalent to the annual electricity needs of about 68,500 typical households and the annual natural gas demand of about 90,500 typical households in PG&E's service area of Northern and Central California. "This program will con- tribute significantly to the overall national effort to break our heavy dependence on foreign energy resour- ces," Mertz said. "It will also help our customers use their energy more efficiently and hold their utility bills below what they would otherwise be." PG&E's 1980 energy conservation plans, filed with the California Public Utilities Commission, will expand the utility's most successful energy-saving programs, while creating several new ones. PG&E estimates its con- servation efforts will ac- complish the following ob- jectives in 1980: - Finance about 19,000 home attic insulation jobs (the utility was the first in- vest.r-owned utility in the state to offer low-interest insulation financing to its customers, providing up to $500at 8 percent for up to five years). - Provide more than 60,000 home energy audits that will stimulate insulation in- stallations in more than 1,000 homes. -- Complete 15,000 attic insulation inspections. - Train 1,400 community action agency crew and supervisory personnel at the S[6'ckton Weatherization Training Center, which PG&E established in 1978 to provide conservation assistance to public agencies serving low-income families. - Energy utilization audits of 5,000 commercial, in- dustrial and agricultural customers who each use more than 100,000 kilowatt- hours or 50,000 therms of gas per year. - Energy Audits at 745 schools. -- Expansion of its Energy Conservation Center to handle an estimated 90,000 phone calls and 15,000 mail inquiries. (Customers may obtain conservation in- formation by calling the toll- free number (800) ?92-8000; or from area code 805, calling collect (415) 543-20?3). To accomplish these specific objectives, PG&E will step up its energy con- servation activities in 12 general program areas. Five of these are directly related to the utility's 3.2 million electric and 2.8 million natural gas customers. They are: - Weatherization, which promotes insulation and other building improvements through financing, home audits, and other incentives; -- Appliances and devices, which focuses on consumer awareness of appliance ef- ficiency; -- Energy Conservation Homes Program, which encourages builders to ex- ceed state standards for energy efficient con- structions; - A diverse commercial- industrial-agricultural conservation program; -- Awide-ranging solar program to encourage the use of the sun's energy through demonstration, monitoring projects, and incentives; and --An overall general awareness program, which conveys consumer con- servation messages through education, advertising and cooperative community activities. In addition to these con- sumer-oriented programs, PG&E will expand: -- Energy conservation research and development, where the company tests and monitors new conservation products and concepts; Continued on page 15 MD SUPER MARKETS --.
