Improvements in steam power generation and economic changes in the fuel supply have caused increasing interest in steam power on the Pacific Coast. After a brief history of the development of steam power on the system of the Pacific Gas & Electric Company, the author discusses some of the fundamental factors entering into the problem of providing additional steam plant capacity for this company in accord with the changed economic conditions. The author describes recent work completed and under construction and gives some of the economic results obtained and expected.
