The lowest average for commercial plants which generated all current was reported by the West North Central division, in which the average output was less than 500,000 kilowatt hours per plant, and the lowest average for municipal plants in the same group was reported by the West South Central division, in which the average was about 228,000. CENTRAL ELECTRIC STATIONS--NUMBER AND OUTPUT OF COMMERCIAL AND MUNICIPAL STATIONS, CLASSIFIED ACCORDING TO PROPORTION OF CURRENT GENERATED AND PURCHASED: 1917 AND 1912. Disposal of current.--Table 56 combines in a convenient way comparative data regarding the output and disposal of current for commercial and municipal plants. From the data here given we find that the proportion which purchased current bears to the total output of stations has been somewhat smaller at both periods for municipal stations than for the other group. In this connection mention should be made of the fact that not all of the current purchased by central stations is also generated by them, for a large though indeterminate quantity is sold to central stations by electric railways. It frequently happens, also, that current sold to one station is resold to another plant, so that there is bound to be a certain amount of duplication in the figures for purchased current, though only by considering all current, both generated and purchased by a plant, can we have a line on the extent of business done by that plant in relation to its customers.
