Correspondence. GAS V. ELECTRICITY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 December 1914

Correspondence. GAS V. ELECTRICITY. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—In your last issue Mr. Carter published the amounts paid by him to my company during the last six months. I am unable to agree with him on these amounts as corresponding with the months as shown. Mr. Carter is apparent ly taking the date of his receipts and not the month in which the gas was consumed. However, as the six months' average for gas against twelve months for electricity is an unfair basis, this remained the vital point, At an interview which took place between Mr. Carter and myself on Saturday, Mr. Carter agreed that for the comparison of averages the twelve months should be taken for both gas and electricity. This is all I desire, and on this basis the average is 12/11 per month for gas at Beualla. Mr. Carter has seen these figures and is satisfied they are correct. Dealing with other points in the letter, viz, " if electricity is only as cheap as gas," what inducement Is held out to ratepayers to scrap pounds wort...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 December 1914

TO Till'. I5DITOR. Sir,—Mr Hugh Hull states "I am in receipt of the following in formation which may at the present time be of interest :— Watts per hr. 50 c.p, metul filament lamp cotuutues ••• 55 25 c p. luetal fi!nuicnt lamp ... 30 16 c.p. ,, „ ,, ... 2U" This is rather interesting, especi ally as it comes from such an ar dent electric supporter as Mr Hull. And seeing we have at last got statements " which must be abso lutely correct " we can now arrive at something definite and sensible, viz,, 50 c p. met. filament lamp con sumes 55 watts ; therefore with electricity at 7(1 per unit you get 909 c.p. per hour for 1000 watts, or 7d worth of electricity. 1-foot of coal gas (low pressure) consumed through a modern inverted gas burner gives 35 c.p. per foot. With gas at 9s 2d per 1000 cubic feet this is 9 feet for Id, therefoie 25 c.p. per foot x by 9 gives the amount of candle power, viz;, 225 for one penny. Now multiply this 225 Dy 7d to equal electricity at 7d per unit, and we get...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Independent — 15 December 1914

TO THE EDITOR. SrR,—In reply to my letter asking" for further information ra the comparative values of gas v. electricity, Mr H. R. Harper, city electrical engineer, Melbourne, states that (1) the efficiency of a good electric lamp will only de crease about i'O per cent, in about 2000 hours, The ordinary incan descent mantle drops its light efficiency in a few hours ; (2) in Melbourne and suburbs the price of gas is 4a 5d per 1000. In the city of Melbourne current for lighting is sold at 3>£d per unit, and it i3 found that there is very little competition to be feared from gas. In the suburbs the price for current ia 5}4d, and still it ia found that fully. 90 per cent, of the new houses erected have electric light installed. These, Sir, are definite facts from an authoritative source and make the position quite clear. HUGH HUU,.
