The authority also announced initial plans to build a new million kilowatts of pumped storage power station in Schoharie County, 100 miles north of Manhattan;
The target operating date is 1977.
Of course, Edison\'s problem with the provision of electricity is largely due to the opposition of local residents to the construction of such facilities in their jurisdiction.
Officials in Schoharie County are really forming.
\"We are absolutely against this,\" he said.
Meanwhile, officials at New Jersey public service Power and Gas said they were \"cautiously optimistic\" about their ability to meet the demand for electricity in hot weather along the Hudson River \".

For a whole week last month, residents saw their world through scorching, dizzying smoke --
Pollution experts told them last week how bad the situation was.
On April 20, Birmingham recorded the highest reading of 607 micrograms of solid matter per cubic meter of air.
By federal standards, when people with heart and respiratory diseases should leave the street, it is more than three times the so-called critical level.
Statistics compiled last week by the federal and local pollution agencies made it clear that people in Birmingham have suffered the expected impact --
Cough or discomfort in throat and chest, eye irritation, shortness of breath.
Of the 2,900 citizens surveyed, nearly complained about the disease.
It was more than three times the rate of symptoms previously registered in uncontaminated urban areas.
With the help of some popular rain, the dirty air finally dissipated and the real storm broke out.
Many factories and factories in Birmingham are sincerely committed to working to reduce their contribution to smog.
But Alabama Attorney General Bill bacley filed a state court lawsuit against 13 large companies in Birmingham, accusing them of polluting the air and endangering the lives of citizens.
The proposed federal standard will ban reading more than 260 micrograms more than one day a year.
Birmingham\'s figure exceeded 41 times last year.

Color has shaped the Spirit of 76 years: courage, persistence, fearlessness
But not in Philadelphia last week.
After four years of planning, lobbying and spending of $2. 5million . . .
After defeating other candidate cities, President Nixon was designated as the host of the Expo to mark the 200 anniversary of the nation\'s birth. . .
The steering committee of Philadelphia double century has been a success.
The Commission\'s recommendation is to cancel the World Expo, which was originally scheduled to take place in the city.
The reason for this is that the site is not supported by the community and lacks adequate federal and local funding guarantees.
All hope for the expo that the International Exhibition Bureau has approved has not been lost.
Some city officials have continued to support the project, and some have even speculated that the dramatic action of the Commission may be a lack of strategies to stimulate community enthusiasm so far.
The question at hand is whether cities that have lost in the Expo competition will speed up re-entry to the list. En Garde!

Soul Sola riddle: Why is it so frustrating when the soul is soaring?
The answer: last week, Governor Rockefeller signed a bill requiring all retailers in the state to sell alcohol at least 12 cents higher than wholesale prices, starting in July 4.
Seven years ago, in 1964, the legislature and the governor jointly enacted a bill to remove the minimum liquor price and allow stores to sell spirits at whatever price they want.
One result is a surge in new liquor stores in the state --
From 4,232 in 1964 to 5,454 in 1968.
Another result of the enthusiastic welcome from consumers is the implementation of \"weekly specials\" at large liquor discount stores --
Popular brands are sold at near wholesale prices: \"specials\" really infuriated the trade group metropolitan packaging Store Association, which consists of small retailers.
The group claims that the liquor stores on the corner of \"mom and pop\" cannot meet such competition and are being ousted.
It noted that the number of liquor stores has dropped by 350 in the past two years.
The legislature has passed two minimum price bills since 1964, but each time
Rockefeller vetoed them.
A spokesman said he signed the deal this time because there was evidence that small retailers had been kicked out of the business --
Although the State Liquor Authority objected to the bill in a report to the governor, the bill was considered \"a way to eliminate price competition \".
As a result, consumers bought a good bottle of Scotch whisky from the discount store for $7.
00 will pay at least $7.
