Yesterday, a party of gentlemen consisting of tbe Directorate of the Tai Tapp Dairy Company, Ltd.,.visited Akaroa, to make en., quiries concerning the Akaroa Borough electrioal scheme in view of that company tap" ping the Government's Lake Coleridge electrical supply and supplying to the residents within roughly a radius of seven miles round Tai Tapu. ,The party consisted af the following gentlemen.—Messrs H. E. Pery. man (chairman), T. Macartney. F, Hubbard, J. Heinzman, J. Sharp (Directors), and C. P.. Agar, secretary and general manager). The proposal the Tai Tapu Company-have in hand is to work their dairy faotory by electricity and do away wiih coaling. It is estimated the factory will absorb, 30 h.p., that there will be house connections in the distriot prescribed for 300 lights and power for working milking machines and other power absorbing machinery. Mr McCartney's crushing plant at Tai Tapu .will also be worked with electrio power if the company are able to make an agreement with the Government for the supply ot _ electrio power, which will prove an economical pre position. This plant will absorb 10 hp. The company have approached the Govern' ment regarding the cost of power, and in reply stated it would supply it at the rate, of £12 per horsa power per year.
