The heat has made news this summer.
Seldom has South Texas experienced so many consecutive
days with temperatures at or above 100 degrees.
Fortunately, electricity provides a way to escape the
heat and enjoy cool comfort. Air-conditioning, refrigeration
and other summer uses of electricity may cause your electric
bill to be larger but think of the value you get for every
electric service dollar. Can you think of anything else that
gives you so much comfort and convenience for so little cost?
