Can you think of anything else • that costs less than it used to? Yes, it's a fact! The average residential rate for electricity from Interstate Power is cheaper today. Your electric service bill, however, totals more because the average home today uses 5 to 6 times as much electricity as it did just a generation ago. Check the many work-saving appliances you have today... you are living better... electrically. 1930 Tti Avirtfi HHU lacy W a. r «lt«wiai Afplicictt J?
