The low price
LoOK AT THE COST OF LIVING up 25.4 since 1939
Then look at the average kilowatt-hour price of P.P.&L. electric
ity down 21 for residential service during the same period!
Part of this reduction in the average cost of electricity is due
to increased use of electrical helpers, which automatically moves
users into the lower steps of our progressive rate schedules. But
even more important have been the three rate reductions and
' the two "rate dividends" received by our customers in the past
These forward steps have cut the average price we get for
residential electric service from 2.36 cents per kilowatt-hour in
1939 to only 1.86 cents at the present time.
And compared with 15 years ago, the average home serve i of
P.P.&L. is now using about twice as much electricity at no
The actual record of steady reduction in the cost of youi cctric
service is your assurance of continued better value in the future
