. - ~ Last April. as you resember. we announced a°"rate dividend"
to all our electric customers. in the tern of individual checks for
‘ > approximately one-half oi’ their average monthly electric bills. The -
total alount. all over the PPH. system. was 0300.000.
low we are glad to notity you that another rate dividend check
sill be mailed to you as soon‘ as possible after the and or Septenber.
It will make a total oi’ 0600.000 of savings to our customers during
1944—the equivalent of a lull month's electric service free. ' ‘
' It has been our wartime responsibility to supply errioiently
every need or the military establishments. the industrial plants a
a . ' and the civilian population on our lines. Naturally. this abnormal
demand for power! has increased our total voluae of business.
I . With the approval or the Washington Department or Public Service
and the Oregon Public Utilities Commissioner. we feel that the fairest
’ possible way to share the revenue tron this extra business. while it
lasts. is to distribute these "rate dividends". .
The cost or electricity in hoses on the PPM. system is about
half or the national average. These two rate dividends reduce it about
84/31 further for 1944. As a taxpayer. you will be gratified to know
that we have paid constantly increasing taxes while reducing rates. and .
that we have never drawn a dollar or subsidy tron your public treasury.
