In order that our custo
mers may benefit immediately
from slie recent reduction in rates
for electricity, our accounting de
partment, on bills to be sen'i out
December 1, v/ill figure each cus
tomer's bill under that schedule
which it appears v/ill be to the
best advantage of that customer.
Not only do our new rates
mean a very material saving for
a large proportion of our custo
mers, but the new rates, with
electricity at 3 3-4 cents per KW
hour for the first 150 KW hours
and 3 cents per KW hour for all
consumption above that, mean
that our customers in general
may enjoy the fullest measure of
comfort and convenience that
may f~ ? derived from electric ser
vice a' n insignificant cor-t.
-lesidential customers
whose c onsumption is less than
28 KW hours per month (and
who do not contemplate increas
ing their consumption) will find
it to their advantage to take ser
vice under schedule 1-B, which is
as follows: $1,00 for the first 13
KW hours or less used per month;
7 cents per KW hour for all con
sumption in excess of 13 KWH
used per month.
However, with electricity
at 3 3-4 cents per KW hour up
to 150 KW hours and at 3 cents
for all consumption above that
figure, very few customers, we
believe, will deny themselves the
greater convenience and comfort
which they can have so cheaply
and few will elect schedule 1-B.
The accompanying graph shows the comparison between the old Southern Pub
lic Utilities lighting schedule,, the average rate in the 177 largest cities in America as
worked out by the Worth Carolina Corporation Commission, and the new residential
service schedule of the utilities company. You will note that the new schedule No. 1.
depicted by the heavy black line, is markedly below the curve representing the
177 cities. In the upper left hand corner is shown also the new general lighting
schedule, optional schedule 1-3.
If you know what your consumption is you can find the point nearest to it on the
slanting lines and determine what your monthly bill would be at the old rate, at
che average raSe of the 1 77 cities, and at the new rates embraced in our new schedule
No. I represented by the heavy lines.
All of the new schedules of rates for electric service and the new aekedule of
rates for gas service art; on file at ?aur office and our customers are invited to in
spect and study them, if there is any question in the minds of any customers as to
which schedule they should be under our representatives will be glad to ad.visw with
them, explain the schedules in detail, and be of any assistance possible.
