Straight Answers From Your Power Company This is one in a series of replies to questions being asked by our eust mere. Answering today is Har- old Ellis, Southern Divi- sion Manager. QUESTION: What has Monongahela done to help hold down electric rates? ANSWER: Holding down electric rates has been a goal of this Company as far back as I re- member. During the past quarter-century of steady increases in the prices of almost every- thing else, we were able even to reduce rates on several occasions--because of the many cost-saving measures we put into effect and the greater efficiencies we were able to achieve. Back in 1951 we changed from monthly to bimonthly meter reading and billing, thus cutting those costs practically in half. Soon after, as equipment became available, we began to mechanize a lot of our work and we have continued in this direction until today when much of our field work is done with "bucket" trucks, hole diggers and other mech- anized equipment. We have sold our appliance business, closed many local business offices, combined as many jobs as possible and reduced the num- ber of employes substantially by not re- placing many who retire. While doing so, we have reduced employe travel and rented out excess office space where we could. In short, we have instituted just about every cost-saving measure we can think of--but our cost of operation is still increasing be- cause of inflation, the fuel cost situation, and the cost of meeting environS! control regulations. If you would like more information on how inflation is affecting our business and your electric bills, please phone or visit our nearest office for the pamphlet, "Why Electric Rates Must Go Up," or write to our Customer Ser- vices Department.
