The Consolidated Electric Light Company, of Portland, Me., are making preparations to operate a 600 light Westinghouse incandescent plant of the alternating type. Up to this time almost no incandescent lighting has been done except for street lighting. A population of over 40,000 is within a two mile radius of the Plum street station, and the advance orders for light indicate that a large incandescent plant will be required to furnish the supply. A Westinghouse automatic engine will drive the dynamo and exciter. The Consolidated Company expect this fall to distribute power by electric motors, the demand for which will be large on account of the immense number of small factories.
