We Refund $14.24On Your Meter
Last year
we
refunded
to the pub-
lic,
in the
form
of
taxes,
the
equiva-lent
of
$14.24
for
each
of our
37,000meters.In fact,
if you had the
money
we
pay
in
taxes,
you
could easily
pay
the electric bills
of all our
residentialcustomers five months
a
year.Many people overlook
the
hugetax
payments
of
power companies.Municipal power systems
pay no
taxes,
but are
usually
tax
eaters.
Your (axes would be higher if it were netfor the large refunds fromyour power company.
