Power Company To
Offer Rural Users
The Virginia Electric and Power
Company has developed and filed
with the Commissions of Virginia
and North Carolina a new liberalized
plan for the electrification of rural
areas. This plan is designed to cause
a widespread extension of electric
service throughout the areas served
by the company Just as soon as labor
and material become available for
makinir these extensions.
The new plan proposes that the
company will extend its lines for ru
ral and farm service to the custom'
er's building or to some other deliV'
ery point on his premises, relieving
the customer ot the necessity 01 nav
ing to build any private line, as was
so frequently necessary in the past.
This new plan should reduce to a
minimum delays in getting service,
and also should result in a material
savins: to the farm and rural cus
In commenting on the new filing,
J. G. Holtzclaw, president of Vepco,
said that "the purpose of the new
rural plan is to make electricity
available at substantially lowered
costs to virtually every farm and ru
ral liome in the company's territory,
to the end that greater use of elec
tricity on the farm may not only
help to increase farm production but
may also lower production costs and
generally improve living conditions
for farm and rural families."
Because of existing war conditions,
Mr. Holtzclaw stated that relatively
little construction of new lines is
possible at the present time. How
ever, a substantial number of farms
can undoubtedly be served even un
der present War Production Board
restrictions and prospective users are
urged to apply now for service so
that line extensions may be made at
once where conditions permit and
other extensions may be planned and
construction work started on them
as soon after the war as the neces
sary manpower and materials shall
