STANISLAUS POWER COMPANY BEGINS OPERATION OF 100,000-VOLT LINE IN CALIFORNIA Work is progressing rapidly on the new power plant of the Stanislaus Electric Power Company in Tuolumne County, California. The first unit, supplying power in the neighborhood of the plant, was started about a month ago. At present two units, with a capacity of about 13,000 kilowatts, are in operation. The remaining units, which will bring the capacity to 20,000 kilowatts, are now in place, but the final work necessary before they can be started up will take about three weeks more. The transmission line, operating at 100,000 volts, is now in use. Under a temporary arrangement, the power is delivered to the lines of the Pacific Gas and Electric Company at Mission San Jose, which is at present the end of the Stanislaus company's line. It will be several months before the line can be extended into San Francisco, and until that time all the power will be sold to the Pacific company. As soon, however, as the line can be completed, the power will be marketed independently in San Francisco and vicinity.
