To meet the demand for power in New Zealand, it will be necessary to double the capacity of the systems every ten years. For domestic purposes, New Zealanders rate among the greatest consumers of electricity in the world. The New Zealand Electricity Department, established 1as a separate entity in 1945, has grown concurrently with the demand. Since that time the capital outlay has increased from £30 million to £220 million.
