HOT WATER SERVICES
DRAIN OX POWER SUPPLY
Nearly 50 per cent of domestic electric current was used for hot water services, said Mr. S. J. Harbutt, chairman of the Auckland Electric Power Board, speaking at a luncheon of the Auckland Junior Chamber of Commerce to-day. It was an outstanding convenience, but unless thorough control was maintained it could easily become a menace to the system.
What the Power Board foresaw was the introduction of some form of high frequency ripple control whereby, in case of an extraordinary rise in load, the operator would be able to switch off all or portion of the water heaters in the system till the emergency passed.
