SIGN OF THE TIMES THE INFLATED DOLLAR You see its effects on your food prices, your housing prices and most other things, just as Texas Power & Light Company sees it on the cost of everything necessary to produce and supply your electricity. FUELS COST MORE To produce electricity, TP&L generating plants must use fuels- natural gas. lignite coal and oil, In 1952, the rice of gas, the principal fuel used by TP&L, was just ive cents per 1,000 cubic feet. In 1974, the price was 48 cents per 1,000 cubic feet, The Company's total fuel bill in 1914 was $89 million, more than 64% higher than in 1973 CONSTRUCTION COSTS MORE To counter uncertain supplies and spiraling costs of gas and o , TP&L is building new generating plants which will use lignite coal and nuclear materials. Ironically, lignite-rue ed plants cost more than twice as much per kilowatt as gas-fueled plants and the cost of nuclear plants is still higher. FINANCING COSTS MORE Just as most people must borrow money to build their homes, TP&L must borrow money to construct its power plants and other facilities. While the interest rates the Company must pay on borrowed money are now somewhat lower than the all-time high of 10Y8% in 1974, they are still about twice the rates of 1964. You and all TP&L customers expect a reliable supply of electric power and we're constantly working to meet this respons b it)'. However, becauseof the squeeze of rising costs, it is mevitabte that the price of e ectr c ty must be increased in the future. ) ]EXAS 1'( )WER & IJ(;ttl (:()MI ANY A tax-paymg, investor-owned electric utility This combination made a heavy, durable rug that can be tossed into the washer and dried with high heat.
