N0RTW CENTRAL It's Good News To Know YOU SAVE MORE WITH NATURAL GAS ™. YOU SAVE When You Heat With Gas YOU SAVE ..... When You Cook With Gas YOU SAVE When You Dry Clothes With Gas -- And You Save With A Gas Water Heater n ' n Net Price For a Customer Using 852 KWH During One Month, of Which 432 Are Used for Water Heater (Water Heater Alone, no other electricity used, Would Be $4.67) Net Price For a Customer Using 2,000 Cubic Feet of Gas During One Month for Water Heater (Water Heater Alone — If Other Gas Used in Conjunction, Rate Lowers) WE ALSO HAVE A 'COMBINATION RATE' It's Quite Simple and Entirely Uncomplicated The so-called "Combination Rate" — when reduced to uncomplicated terms — simply means that when a user of any utility's product elects to operate a number of '•( appliances on, that utility's product, he receives a greater over-all saving. In the case of the recently announced Electric Rate Schedule, to be eligible for any rate change the user of electricity must have an Electric Water Heater. Without an electric water heater, it appears that he cannot participate in a rate benefit. In the case of Natural Gas, as shown above, the differential in costs between electric and gas water heating is very marked in the greater saving Gas gives. If the user heats his house with gas also, his water heater rate on a year-around basis can then still be lower. In fact, for a typical gas user, who elects to combine gas house heating with several gas appliances, his over-all gas rate can be very much lower than the same electricity usage. As your Gas Company, we are genuinely proud of our rate schedule — which is low for one appliance and low for many. YOUR GAS COMPANY
