Page 2 An increased and more reliable supply of electric power is assured for the Mason City area after com pletion of a statewide high voltage transmission grid now being constructed by eight major electric companies This was announced Thursday by Charles E Strickland general manager of Peoples Gas and Elec tric Mason City one of the eight participating electric companies The grid a network of 1259 ad ditional miles of 161000 volt elec tric lines will be an expressway for exchange of large quantities of electric energy between the com panies Incentive to Industry Strickland saw the grid us an in centivc to industries that may con template locating City area in the Mason It the grid certainly will en able our territory to offer the best possible electric service to any in dividuals or concerns contcmplat ing locating in it he said The socalled Iowa grid will link the eight major power com panies in the statp They generate Mason City We will continue lo produce our own requirements and carry on a program of expansion at our local and prob ably supply through our surplus facilities a portion ot the power needs of areas in the state less favorably situated Mason City will be one of the tey points of the proposed system and the work to be done here will represent a sizeable investment We have long recognized the jcnefits to us and to the state aris ing from the inlerconncclion of Lhc major power stations in Jowa Several years ago when the large generating plants at Davenport Des Moines Fort Dodge and Kansas City were all a part of the United Light system a tie up of these units was worked out At that time an exhaustive study was made with the idea in mind of including Peoples Gas and Electric which was also in the United Light group Although our company has for a long time been interconnected with the Iowa Pub lic Service Company the advan tages ot the proposed Towa grki system will be of far greater bene fit to us We recognize tho importance ol The initial phase o the grid con struction calls for ncsv lines in addition to those under ion from Fort Dodge to Iowa Palls and on eastward to Dubuque rom Iowa Falls north lo Mason City and then on to Albert Lea Minn and from Oelwcin north to near Decorah making 575 miles of new electric expressways over the state about 85 per cent of the states electric energy In addition to Peoples Gas and Electric Ihc firms are

looking more and more to the Mid dle West for locations in its ever expanding decentralization and dis persion program Iowa can be sure of getting a large measure of this industry if it can offer power at reasonable rates and in large quantily with every assurance of dependability Strickland declared We are very pleased with the Inclusion of Peoples Gas and Elec tric in the proposed Iowa power grid system as it will assure our territory of an increased and more reliable supply of electric power It will in no way affect the generation of electricity here in ample and reliable electric serv ice and are confident that when completed the proposed Iowa grif system will place this locality in most enviable position Five Routes Two eastwcsl and Ihree norlh south roiiles have been oullinct for Ihe grid Interconnection of the companies under the grid plai would permit power to be fed into any section of he slate from at least two directions The 161000 volt lines would not provide direct
