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.
