PEA ENERGY MANAGEMENT CONTEST MAKES WINNERS OF ELECTRIC CUSTOMERS

 HARRISBURG, Pa., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Electric utility customers, the utilities providing service and even taxpayers were the winners in prize-winning projects honored here Thursday night by the Pennsylvania Electric Association's (PEA) Industrial and Commercial Committee.
 "It's a win-win proposition for everyone," said John C. Verneski of Pennsylvania Power & Light Co., in describing his work with an aluminum extrusions manufacturer. "The customer saves on energy costs. He becomes more competitive in his market. Pennsylvania gets 120 new jobs, and my company increases kilowatt-hour sales."
 Verneski also was a winner, receiving a $225 prize and plaque for his first-place award in the Industrial Process category of the contest.
 Dave Hillenbrand of Metropolitan Edison Co. won first place in the General Application category, and Kenneth W. Davidson of Pennsylvania Power & Light Co. won first place in the Space Conditioning category.
 The annual energy management contest sponsored by the Industrial and Commercial Committee, one of 27 standing and special committees of PEA, drew 83 entries from member companies. Preliminary judging was by the committee. Final judging was done by independent judges outside of the industry. Key criteria in the contest are increased efficiency produced by the project, total energy savings for the customer, and increased sales for the utility.
 This year, two of the prize-winning projects in the Space Conditioning category involved public schools, both of which realized thousands of dollars in annual energy savings as a result of using electric space conditioning. Taxpayers in this case were the big winners.
 Other winners honored at the awards ceremony were Robert E. Makim of Philadelphia Electric Co., second place; Thomas A. Gill, Pennsylvania Power & Light, third place; and John Barron, West Penn Power Co., honorable mention, all in the Space Conditioning category.
 In the General Application category, Milorad Pokrajac, West Penn Power, was second; Jeffrey B. Otto, Philadelphia Electric, was third; and Jeff Antolic of Metropolitan Edison received honorable mention. In the Industrial Process category, R. Scott Brown, Philadelphia Electric, was second; Charles Hanna, also of Philadelphia Electric, was third; and Frank Richards of Pennsylvania Power & Light received honorable mention.
 PEA is the trade association of the 11 investor-owned electric utilities in the commonwealth. These utilities provide electric service to 95 percent of the population and supply about 98 percent of the electric energy consumed in Pennsylvania.
