Some Problems of Complete Electrification in the USSR


  • M. Vilenskii


The current Seven-Year Plan will be a decisive stage in implementing the great Lenin's idea of completely electrifying the country. The exceptional significance of electrification in the creation of the material and technical base for communism demands a theoretical clarification of the question of the nature of complete electrification and the best ways of reaching this goal. Lenin's well-known formula directly points out that communism assumes the complete electrification of the country. Consequently, complete electrification involves, first of all, the introduction of electric power into all the corners, all the branches of the economy of our vast land.The successful implementation of the GOELRO plan and of the five-year plans has helped to overcome the lag in the electrification of the country, its various parts and regions.
