History of the arrival of electricity
found at the departmental records of Puy-de-Dôme, an endorsement
to the contract of concession of electric distribution of power
which was signed between
Jean TOURY, mayor of our commune in 1936 and the
of Auvergne on December 24, 1936.
document, very long and precise in its drafting,
teaches us that the initial concession
has been signed on July 11, 1925 between the company
and the town hall,
Jean TOURY being already at the time mayor.
It is thus from 1925 that electricity started to be proposed to the inhabitants of the commune; let us point out the characteristic of the village of Theix which profited from this favour 5 years before the others, thanks to the construction of the electry factory by prisoners of war of 14-18 for the benefit of the lord of the time who had liberally granted to each one of its employees the right to use one bulb in their home.
Fresh water as for it, started to arive to Champanellois only afterwards 1960, that being due certainly, with water the abundant resource of the commune.
