Sanders Floral and Evergreen Company Athens, :-: Texas Malakoff, Texas RURAL ELECTRIFICATION Bringing electric service to the farm isbeing heralded today as one of the greatest social services that can be rendered. Twenty-two years ago this Company dedicated itself to rural electrification as a nat- ural part of its service to an agricultural area. The number of farms dec- trifled by this Company dur- ing the past 10 ,ears is more than 400% ahead of the na- tional increase. This is sound evidence that this Company, as a properly managed, pri- vately owned utility, is wide awake to the obligations ira. posed upon it by the nature of its business. It has been doing quietly, for many years, those things which best serve the people. HAT'S the dictionary's description of a pioneer . . . one who goes before to prepare the way for another." ... What "way" was prepared? For whom? By whom? When? How? Words, in answer to these questions, can never picture the pioneering drama of transmission line service in Texas. The way was prepared for the people to have low-cost, 24-hour electric service by the Texas Power & I.ight Company, in 1912, by means of transmission line electric service. That was what this Company set out to do when it was organized. That is what it has worked toward during the past 22 years. That is still its first objective today. In 1912, Texas communities were in dire need of dependable, low-cost electric power. Hundreds of towns had no electric service. Isolated power plants could not supply this need economically. The only answer was transmission line service. Building transmission lines in Texas, in 1912, was one of those things that "couldn't be done." They were new. They were untried and unproven except in one or two thickly settled areas in the East. Texas communities were small and widely scattered. It would require huge sums of money to build transmission lines and big generating stations. The very best engineering counsel would be required because those first transmission lines would become the foundation of a system of lines reaching out to many cities, towns, villages and farms. It was a job that could be done only by pioneering Texans who could see the necessity of "preparing the way for others." The Texans who organized the Texas Power & Light Company saw all of these handicaps. They were driven to overcome them because they could see how transmission llne electric service would benefit all the people of Texas. They dared to do that which "could not be done." They built the first transmission lines in Texas. What is the result? More than 300 Texas cities and towns are servfd by this Com- pany's transmission lines today. Of that total number, 171 had no previous electric service. Industries have been established and are thriving in many of these places today. Opportunities are open for more industries in any of the communities having trans- mission line power service from the Texas Power & Light Com- pany. More than 2,000 dirt farms have the same 24-hour decttic service enjoyed by city people. * While these benefits have been accruing to the people because of TP&L transmission line service, its average cost to residential users has been lowered more than 35% during the past 10 years.
