WATERPOWER IN GEORGIA AND ALABAMA.
Additional developments of waterpower of some of the large and numerous streams, with their falls and shoals, in Georgia and Alabama are being made. The General Electric company has purchased the power rights of Jackson shoals, on the Choccolocco, near Talladega, Ala., and will develop this power extensively at a large cost. The Bibb Power company, Macon, Ga., has effected reorganisation, applied for authority to increase its capital stock from $100,000 to $5,000,000, and proposes to develop 50,000-horsepower of electric energy at plants on the Oconee, Ocmulgee and Flint rivers. It is announced that construction work will begin in the early summer upon a power plant on Little river that will represent, when completed, a total investment of $2,000,000. There arc, also, the enormous waterpower developments projected and in progress’ in northeast Georgia, along the Muscle shoals, in north Alahama; at Columbus. Ga.; Albany, Ga.. and other points in Georgia and Alabama.
