The figures are based on a company-by-company survey conduct- ed by the Federal Energy Adminis- tration's Coal Industry Advisory Committee. The companies were asked to reveal their mining plans for the 1975-85 period. Mountain State production will rise from 106 million tons in 1974 to 165 million tons by 1985. according to the data. More startling is the estimate that in the next five years alone, production will rise 50 per cent - an increase of 53 million tons by 1980-85 may be too low since most coal companies are sti~l . tmsare o~ flmir minm8 ptans beyo~ that date. ~ationwide. the survey found that production would reach 984 million tons by 1985, 116 million tons short of President Ford's 1985 goal of 1.2 billion tons. But John Corcoran. chairman of FEA's Coal Industry Advisory Group and chairman of the Consolidated Coal Co. of Pittsburgh, Pa.. said he was pleasantly surprised by the figures. He said he had felt the 1.2 billion goal was completely unrealistic. "WHile it is still true that we need cooperation to get other issues settled and meet the goal, I am a lot more confident that we can do it than I was three months ago." he said. Corcoran said that production estimates assumed that clean air standards would be eased, federal coal leasing would be resumed, sufficient capital would be available to open new mines and restrictive strip mine laws would not be enacted. A breakdown of how much coal would be strip mined and how much would be deep mined was not included in the survey. DR. EARL SHEFF Foot Specialist New Office 310 Atlas 1029 Quarrier St. Charleston, W.

Straight Answers From "Your Power Company This is one in a series of replies to questions be- Ing asked by our custo- mers. Answering today is Don Smith, Manager, Customer S.ervices for Monongahela. p, QUESTION: Why do industrial customers get electric rates than residential customers? lower ANSWER: Because it costs less to deliver a kilowatt- hour of electricity to an industrial customer than it does to a residence. Electric rates, like prices for other goods and services, are based on the costs involved. The typical industrial customer uses about as much electricity as 143 average residential customers. But the cost of serving that in- dustry is considerably tess than the cost of delivering the same amount of electricity to 143 separate residential customers. Them is only one pole line to build and maintain, one meter or set of meters to install and read, one bill to prepare and mail, etc. (And one of our largest industrial customerc Jses as much electricity as 130,000 avm~0e resi- dential customers.) Among other reasons for less cost are the facts that large industries Ouy power at higher voltages, provide their own trans- formers to get Usable voltages, andthat their use is more nearly constant (often around the clock), thus using more kilowatt-hours through the facilities provided. Electric rates for different types of cus- tomers simply reflect accurately the different costs of providing service. For more information on the costs which affect your electric bill, please contact our nearest office or write to our Customer Ser- vices Department.
