NORTH AMERICAN ELECTRIC RELIABILITY COUNCIL ISSUES '1992 SUMMER ASSESSMENT'

 NORTH AMERICAN ELECTRIC RELIABILITY COUNCIL
 ISSUES '1992 SUMMER ASSESSMENT'
 PRINCETON, N.J., May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- "Electric generating capacity will be adequate to meet peak demands this summer in the United States and Canada," said Michehl Gent, president of the North American Electric Reliability Council (NERC).
 He added, "Portions of the transmission systems will continue to be loaded near their limits to accommodate economy transfers of electricity. Operating procedures are in place to coordinate and control transfers to maintain reliability."
 Fuel supplies are adequate for the summer and no problems are anticipated, he said. Drought conditions continue to affect a few areas, but no reliability problems are expected.
 "As for statistics," Gent said, "the peak demand for electricity is expected to be 2 percent higher than last summer in the United States and about 1 percent lower in Canada."
 These and other findings on the outlook for electricity supply for this summer are in the "1992 Summer Assessment," which is available from NERC.
 The North American Electric Reliability Council is the principal organization for coordinating, promoting and communicating about reliability for North America's electric utilities. The council consists of nine Regional Reliability Councils, whose members account for virtually all electricity supply in the United States and Canada and the portion of the Mexican system that is interconnected with California. The council's membership includes all segments of the electric utility industry -- investor-owned, federal, state/municipal utilities and rural electric cooperative.
