What else can you buy today
for less than you paid ten years ago?
Today—even with the re
cent rate increases—the av
erage cost per kilowatthour
to tSuke's residential custom
ers is less than ten years ago,
or anytime before that.
In 1960, for example, our
average residential customer
paid 1.97? per kilowatthour.
Butin 1970, he paid only 1.73?
per kwh. Our most recent fig

ing August 31,1971 —showan
average cost of 1.82? per kwh.
