THIS GROWING REGION
USES MORE AND MORE OF
FPU's CHEAP ELECTRICITY!
Yei, sonny, capacitors are in effect
little power plants, because they boost the

This year Pacific Power will install 1600
capacitors on pole tops throughout its system.
These ingenious little devices will make
available about 10,000 kilowatts of additional
capacity from existing generators.
