Electric Service is cheap in West Texas
Will Your Money
Buy SEVERAL TIMES
As Much TOIDAY
As in 1928?
In spite of the big reduction in electric rates in
recent years, many folks Say their bills have not
been reduced. In many homes that is true because
today people are using bigger lamp bulbs, they have
radios, refrigerators, washing machines, and in
many cases ranges and water heaters they didn't
used to have. Their bills are about what they've
always been, but today they get from twice to three
or four times as much Electric Service for their
money. For example, in ,1928, $5 bought about 20
kilowatt-hours of residential service but today it
buys 100 or more kilowatt-hours, or five times as
much for your money.
