Texas Power &-Light generating plants require enormous
quantities of natural gas, lignite coal and, when deliveries
of gas are curtailed, fuel oil, to produce electricity.
In 1975, TP&L’s fuel costs were $147 million, more than
five and a half times greater than in 1970. In 1970, only 15
cents of each dollar paid to TP&L by-its customers was
used to purchase fuel. In 1975, fuel required 37 cents of
each revenue dollar.
Unlike most businesses, TP&L cannot automatically
raise the basic price of electricity as the costs of
producing it go Up: TP&L's rates are established and
altered only by resolution or ordinance of city councils.
For this reason, TP&L, and almost every electric company
in the nation, has a fuel adjustment provision in its rates.
When TP&L’s fuel costs exceed 70 cents per million BTU’s
(the equivalent of 1,000 cubic feet of natural gas), the
adjustment provision permits us to pass on to our
customers the additional cost. TP&L makes no profit on
the fuel it purchases.
“What Is TP&L doing to offset rising fuel prices?”
To offset the rising prices of natural gas and fuel oil, TP&L
and two other electric companies are constructing large
generating units which use relatively low cost lignite coal
as fuel. Two such units have been in operation since 1972,
a third unit was placed in service in 1974 and a fourth in
1975. Five other lignite-fueled units are now under
construction and still more are being planned.
For almost sixty-four years, Texas Power & Light has
supplied dependable electric service at a fair price. We’re
working to keep it that way.

GUY LOMBARDO AND LOUIS ARMSTRONG
(Conitnued from Page 1)
The late Carmen -Lombardo
wrote music and 'lyrics for three
Guy Lombardo productions at
Jones Beach, in collaboration
with John Jacob Loeb. “Mairdi
Gras” is the imost recent. The
first two were the spectacular
“Arabian Nights” and “Paradi-
se Island.” Besides being an
accomplished composer, Carmen
was a key instrumentalist and
featured soloist in brother Guy’s
orchestra. It was his unusual
saxophone .technique that was
in part responsible for the
unique singing tone 'Of the band.
Carmen, 'like all the Lombardo
brothers, learned to play a
musical instrument at an early
age. His original training in
Canada Was ais a concert flutist1;
Carmen had also collaborated
with Gus (Kahn and Joe' Yioung
to produce such standards as
“Powder Your Face With Sun-
shine,” “Sweathearts on (Pa-
rade,” “ditte Coquette,” and
“Return To Me.”
Some of the biggest and best
record sellers of the Guy
Lombardo Orchestra have fea-
tured the pin-point trumpeting
of Lebert Lombardo. Their
parents loved music: as a
result Lebert received & sound
musioal education. The instru-
ment he first learned was the
drum, and he was the drummer
in the four - piece band
Guy organized while -the boys
were still in grammar school.
It wasn’t until some years
later that he turned to the
trumpet, and became a first-
rate virtuoso on 'that instru-
merl. Louis Armstrong had
frequently stated that his
“dream” band would certainly
include Lebert Lombardo.
