NEW YORK STATE ELECTRIC & GAS CORPORATION FILES PETITION FOR CURTAILING POWER PURCHASES

 NEW YORK STATE ELECTRIC & GAS CORPORATION
 FILES PETITION FOR CURTAILING POWER PURCHASES
 BINGHAMTON, N.Y., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- On Nov. 4, 1992, New York State Electric & Gas Corporation (NYSE: NGE) (NYSEG) filed a petition with the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) for approval of curtailment procedures to be used by NYSEG to reduce its purchase of energy from non-utility generators (NUGs).
 NYSEG submitted its petition as part of PSC Case 92-E-0814-Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation-Petition for Approval of Curtailment Procedures.
 The regulations issued under the Public Utilities Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA) permit electric utilities to curtail deliveries from NUGs "when, due to operational circumstances, purchases from qualifying facilities will result in costs greater than those the utility would incur if it did not make such purchases." NYSEG forecasts excess energy for the next several years resulting in significant increases in costs to its ratepayers.
