INTRODUCTION.
This Report covers the work of the Public Utilities Commission under the " Public
Utilities Act" for the calendar year ended December 31st, 1949. It does not deal with
matters under the " Motor Carrier Act," a separate report of which will be made
pursuant to section 36 of that Act.
REGULATIONS.
No new regulations or amendments were made under the " Public Utilities Act"
during the year.
OPERATIONS OF PUBLIC UTILITY SYSTEMS.
New Construction and Operation, and Expansion by Public Utility Systems.
New construction or operation, or expansion, of a public utility system requires the
approval or consent of the Commission under section 12 or 13 of the " Public Utilities
Act." A summary of applications for certificates of public convenience and necessity
received or decided during the year is set out in Table 1. Each of the certificates
granted by the Commission and referred to in the table was subsequently approved by
the Lieutenant-Governor in Council.
In the case of extensions of a more or less routine nature, such as extensions of
distribution systems to serve new customers, the Commission, pursuant to the powers
set out in section 13, relieves the public utility from the requirement of obtaining a
certificate of public convenience and necessity. A summary of extensions permitted
under section 13 is set out in Table 2.
The extension of the electric distribution system of British Columbia Electric
Company, Limited, and subsidiary companies, as shown in the table, refers to an order
made by the Commission on August 11th, 1949, exempting the companies from the
requirements of section 12 of the "Public Utilities Act" in respect of extensions of
electrical-energy distribution-lines in part of the Lower Mainland area as defined on a
map attached to the order.
Exemptions from section 12 were granted to General Utility Company, Limited,
for installation of additional fire-protection facilities at Princeton, to the City of
Kelowna for general improvements to its waterworks system, and to White Rock Water
Works Company, Limited, providing for sale of water to The Corporation of the District
of Surrey. The extension of Okanagan Telephone Company comprised the installation
and operation of an automatic exchange at Lumby. The above extensions are summarized in Table 2.
A number of letters were received by the Commission from, persons desiring
extensions of public utility systems to serve their premises. Many of these called for
merely an explanation of the principles and terms on which the extensions should be
made.   Those which were more in the nature of complaints are summarized in Table 3. j 8 british columbia.
New Supplies of Electric Power for Lower Mainland Area.
During the year British Columbia Electric Company, Limited, and subsidiary
companies completed the second and third stages of development of the Bridge River
hydro-electric project, as authorized by certificates of public convenience and necessity
granted in 1948. The second unit was placed in operation in May and the third unit in
December, bringing the total generating capacity of the Bridge River plant to 186,000
horse-power.
On October 11th, 1949, the Commission granted a certificate of public convenience
and necessity to British Columbia Electric Company, Limited, and Western Power
Company of Canada, Limited, for construction of a third unit of the electric-power
generating-station at Ruskin, to provide an additional capacity of 35,000 kilowatts. It
is expected that this unit will go into service during 1950. The particulars are summarized in Table 1.
New Supplies of Electric Power for Vancouver Island South.
As set forth in Table 1, the Commission, on February 10th, 1949, granted a certificate of public convenience and necessity to British Columbia Electric Railway Company,
Limited, for the construction of a transmission-line between Nanaimo and Victoria, to
connect with the system of the British Columbia Power Commission. This source of
supply will provide additional capacity of 17,500 kilowatts of electrical energy for the
southern portion of Vancouver Island.
Discontinuance and Suspension of Service.
Particulars of applications by public utilities to discontinue or suspend service are
set forth in Table 4.
Complaints as to Service by Public Utilities.
Particulars of complaints as to service provided by public utilities are set forth in
Table 5.
One of the more important complaints noted is that of the City of Kelowna against
West Kootenay Power and Light Company, Limited, with respect to transformer facilities for service to the city. The city purchases power wholesale from the company and
distributes it through its own distribution system. As part of a plan for improving
service to the city's customers, the city wished to obtain power from the company at a
higher voltage, or at an additional supply point in the southern end of the city. The
company took the position that the first proposal was impractical in view of the existing
installations, and that, as to the second proposal, the present substation would have a
large reserve capacity for some time to come, and that until the reserve was taken up
the company should not be expected to install additional transformers in the south end
of the city.
As the parties seemed to be unable to work out a compromise satisfactory to both,
the Commission instructed its Chief Engineer, E. I. W. Jardine, to investigate and
report on the matter. In the course of this investigation, Mr. Jardine held a conference
at Kelowna with officials of the interested parties, as a result of which a better mutual
understanding was reached and the parties arrived at a mutually satisfactory agreement. The company agreed to install a new transformer-station in the south end of the
city on receipt of the transformers already ordered and expected in August, 1950. The
city accepted responsibility for voltage regulation on its own system, and also agreed
to install the feeders between the present and the new substation.
The way in which Mr. Jardine assisted the parties in settling the dispute was much
appreciated by the parties themselves and by the Commission. report of the public utilities commission. j 9
RATES.
Investigation of British Columbia Electric Company, Limited, and
Subsidiary Companies.
Public hearings on the rates of British Columbia Electric Company, Limited, and
subsidiary companies were held in 1948, and the results were reported in the Annual
Report under the " Public Utilities Act " for that year, conclusions having been arrived
at respecting most questions. There were some specific requests for rate adjustments
for particular areas and particular classes of users that had been left over for further
consideration, and these were dealt with in 1949.
A decision was made on January 11th, 1949, that a reduction of commercial and
domestic rates for electricity in the Districts of Burnaby and West Vancouver and the
City of North Vancouver was not justified.
The representations which had been made at the 1948 hearings by Frank Walsh
were dealt with by the Commission on April 28th, 1949. Mr. Walsh had contended that
the rate structure of British Columbia Electric Railway Company, Limited, discriminates against commercial users. The Commission came to the conclusion that his claims
had not been substantiated, and he was notified of this. On the application of Mr.
Walsh a rehearing of his submissions was held by the Commission on August 22nd,
1949. Mr. Walsh undertook to file certain evidence in support of his contentions but
did not do so, and no further action was taken by the Commission.
Rate Changes consented to pursuant to Sections 17 and 19 of the
" Public Utilities Act."
A complete statement of all rate changes authorized during 1949 appears in Table
6. The changes which have affected the largest number of persons have been the
increases in urban transportation fares of British Columbia Electric Railway Company,
Limited, in Vancouver and the Greater Victoria area, and the increase in ticket fares
on the North Vancouver ferry. These increases, together with increases in rates and
connection charges of certain other utilities, as set forth in the table, were consented to
by the Commission after inquiry disclosed that revenues were inadequate in the face of
increased operating costs.
On the other hand, in two cases general reductions in rates for the sale of electrical
energy were introduced. Following complaints of residents of the North Shore area
near Nelson, as described in Table 7 of the Annual Report for 1948, and further investigation by the Commission, the City of Nelson effected a downward revision of rates in
unorganized areas adjacent to its boundaries.
The annual report of Princeton Light and Power Company, Limited, disclosed that
earnings were in excess of an amount considered reasonable by the Commission, and a
rate reduction was brought about by voluntary action of the company.
Severe weather conditions in the winter of 1948-49 caused a shortage of water for
electric-power generation in British Columbia, in common with other areas in the
Pacific Northwest. To meet the problems created by this emergency, British Columbia
Electric Railway Company, Limited, and Northern British Columbia Power Company,
Limited, filed tariff revisions providing for enforcement of power-conservation
measures.
An increased supply of electrical energy made it possible for British Columbia
Electric Railway Company, Limited, to file a rate for sale of electrical energy to five
electric-power distributing companies in the United States.
Following investigation, the Commission, on June 16th, 1949, refused an application of The Sandon Water Works and Light Company for consent to an increase in
rates for the sale of electric power and water at Sandon. j 10 british columbia.
Rate Complaints.
The rate complaints dealt with during the year are summarized in Table 7.
SECURITY ISSUES, MORTGAGES, AND SALES.
Security Issues and Mortgages.
Applications during 1949 under section 22 of the " Public Utilities Act" for
approval of security issues and mortgages are summarized in Table 8. It will be noted
that the development programme of British Columbia Electric Company, Limited, and
subsidiary companies required the raising of $17,000,000 by a bond issue and approximately $9,000,000 by share issues.
Sales of Assets of Public Utility Systems.
Transfers of property dealt with during 1949 under section 24 of the " Public
Utilities Act" are summarized in Table 9.
The assets in the Pend d'Oreille River valley which were transferred from West
Kootenay Power and Light Company, Limited, to Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company of Canada, Limited, consisted of property not required by the transferor for
the generation of electrical energy for sale to the public.
REVENUE AND EXPENSES, 1940-49.
A statement of revenue and expenses of the Public Utilities Commission under the
" Public Utilities Act" and the " Motor Carrier Act" is set out in Table 10. The
figures shown are for the calendar year and not the fiscal year, and figures for previous
years have been included for comparative purposes. Revenue under the " Motor Carrier
Act" has been compiled from monthly reports made by the Superintendent of Motor
Carriers. Revenue under the " Public Utilities Act" represents fees on applications
granted during the year, even though the fees may not have been transferred from
Suspense Account to Revenue Account until the following year.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Revisions of routes and time schedules, the setting of carrying capacities of
vehicles, and the filing of statistics were attended to from time to time in respect of
transportation systems in accordance with the Regulations respecting Transportation
(" Public Utilities Act").
The Commission considered a complaint of J. E. L. Muir that the issuance of
4%-per-cent. preferred shares by British Columbia Electric Company, Limited, constituted a wrong against investors who had previously purchased 4-per-cent. shares of
the company. The complainant was advised that the Commission does not guarantee
the investor against fluctuations in the market value of his securities.
The Commission received a request from the Princeton and District War Memorial
Association for assistance in settling a dispute with Princeton Light and Power Company, Limited, as to the use of a private power-line installed by the association at the
Memorial Park and serving the War Memorial Association and one other consumer.
After investigation, the Commission advised the utility that in providing service to
the two consumers in the first place it had assumed an obligation of continuing to
supply adequate service.
Permission was granted to The Wells Townsite Company, Limited, to provide water
service to one user located just outside the area prescribed in the company's certificate
of public convenience and necessity, provided that such permission should not set a
precedent for similar future applications. report of the public utilities commission. J 11
On October 7th, 1949, the Commission made an order authorizing an extension of
electric distribution-lines by British Columbia Electric Railway Company, Limited,
under Plan II of the company's extension policy, as described in the Annual Report
for 1948.
The Commission received a request from the City of Kimberley for assistance in
arranging for relocation of a high-tension line of East Kootenay Power Company,
Limited, as its location was considered hazardous. A mutually satisfactory solution was
found, with the co-operation of the Electrical Energy Inspection Department.
On February 8th, 1949, the Commission authorized Union Estates, Limited, to
drain one of its pipes at Sechelt for the duration of the cold weather, provided that the.
consumers should be informed of what was being done, and that normal service should
be resumed promptly when the danger from freezing was past.
CHANGES IN MEMBERSHIP OF COMMISSION DURING 1949.
The period of the appointment of L. W. Patmore as a member of the Commission
terminated on January 31st, 1949, and D. K. Penfold was appointed a member of the
Commission, effective February 1st, 1949. Dr. W. A. Carrothers was reappointed a
member and Chairman of the Commission as from February 1st, 1949. J 12

Referred to company, which explained cause of
minor delays to complainant and completed
connection.
Enforcement of the alleged agreement would be a
matter for the Courts; no action warranted
under  " Public Utilities Act."
Survey made by company of whole Jaffray area,
and results forwarded to complainant by Commission ; extension apparently not economically
feasible.
As no clear and definite agreement as claimed had
been shown, the Commission declined to take any
action on the agreement. The company undertook to provide a connection at its mains, and
the complainant was so advised.
Complaint due to misunderstanding; necessary
explanations furnished.
Terms quoted by the company found to be reasonable.
Compromise settlement between parties approved
by Commission.
Extension terms found to be reasonable and in
accordance with the extension policy of the
utility.
Both parties informed of Commission's opinion
that extension is economically feasible under the
ordinary rules for extensions specified in city
by-laws.
Special construction required ; special terms warranted under filed tariff; complainant advised
of tariff provisions.
Investigation showed water system sufficient only
for authorized area, and complainant so advised.
