Information Sources


This series consists of correspondence received and created by the State Electricity Commission, and the previous agencies responsible for administration of the Electric Light and Power Act 1896. The series includes correspondence with the Regional Electricity Boards and Authorities, the Brisbane City Council's Department of Electricity and other government departments. In addition, these files contain copies of electricity regulations from the Queensland Government Gazette, plans and drawings, correspondence relating to legislation, schedules, monthly reports of each of the Regional Boards as well as other electricity boards, reports of various Commissions of Inquiry, committees and other ad hoc investigations. For a complete list of file subjects refer to the consignment list.

Inwards and outwards correspondence register cards were created by the State Electricity Commission and its successor, the Queensland Electricity Commission, as an index to individual correspondence. Whilst these cards partly control this series, the cards are not appropriate for finding correspondence items within files or batches in this series. For this reason, the file movement cards (SRS 151) and the consignment list are recommended for locating items within this series.
