Excerpt from The Electric Journal, Vol. 15: January-December, 1918
In view of the fact that the previous year's growth had been, in many cases, nearly double the usual normal growth of 12 to 15 percent, the possibility of a power shortage in some localities is not to be wonde... red at. That such tremendous-loads are being carried with as little difficulty as they are, speaks well for the foresight and ability of our central station managers.
More generating units of large individual capacity have been contracted for during the past year than ever before. As typical examples, at Pittsburgh the Du quesne Light Company are installing a 40000 kilowatt cross-compound unit; at Providence, the Narragansett Electric Company are installing a 45 000 kilowatt cross compound unit; and at New York the Interborough Rapid Transit Company are installing a 70 000 kilowatt triple element unit.
