O Early next month you will
receive a check like this for your
share of a $300,000 "rate dividend"
to all PP&L electric customers. The
amount' of your dividend will be
approximately one-half of your aver
age monthly electric bill and it
will be paid by check and not merely
a credit on your next bill.
We are taking this unusual step
because there is an unusual condi
tion to be dealt with. The war is
causing an abnormal demand for
electricity at many places on the
PP&L system. Just as a few ex
amples, we are serving new war
industries, commercial businesses,
air fields, training camps-, naval
bases and supply depots.
And besides serving electricity to
all our regular customers, PP&L has
been called upon to furnish electric
ity to a sudden influx of new families
in the neighborhood of all these war
caused activities. All this has result
ed in an unusual increase in our total
volume of business.
You and all the other users of our
electric service have a right to share
in the benefits of this extra business
while it lasts. The question has been
"What is a sound way of distribu
ting these benefits?"
After thorough investigation, the
Washington Department of Public
Service and the Oregon Public Utili
ties Commissioner have approved
this "rate dividend" plan as a fair
and practical way to meet a war
The check you receive as your
share of this $300,000 customer-dividend
will reduce further the cost you
pay for electricity which already
is only about half national average.

It was BUSINESS MANAGEMENT that made these reductions in your electric
rates, without calling on the public treasury for help. In fact, PP&L has paid con
stantly increasing taxes in support of Government while rates were being reduced.
