PS THE MUSKOGEE GAS & ELECTRIC COMPANY have decided to place in effect the new and reduced electric lighting rale Fchcdfle authorized by the State Corporation Commission. i he new rates, which are given below, will mean a substantial reduction in the lighting bills of the resident and business customers. The new electric lighting rates will mean a large decrease in the gross and net earnings of the Company. The maximum or highest rate is cut from 15 cents to 12 cents per kilowatt hour, with a discount of ten per cent tor prompt payment, bringing the net rate down to 10.8 cents per kilowatt hour. I his is a cue in the maximum rale oi _!0 per cent. POLICY Of COMPANY While there Has been no increase in business done by the Company which would warrant the drastic rate cuts authorized by the Slate Corporation Commission, the Company is willing to do its utmost toward meeting the popular demand for lower-priced electricity. We will place the lower rate in efleeT according to this policy and exert every effort to overcome decreased earnings -so far as possible by seeking to build up increased use of the service by our customers. i here will be no deterioration in the standards of the service and business methods. We shalL^employ our best endeavors toward continued efficiency in the adequate service of the public. DIFFERENCES IN TI IE NEW RATE. SCHEDULE | he new Jightir.s rate schedule is even simpler than the one heretofore in effect, which ws;s by no means complicated. All iighlin;', customer?; under both l!\e old and new schedules s'.ar! from the same basis ia'e (ma\:nuim rale) , rcl pr.y '.dern'ealiy the rame rale per kilow.Ui hour !or similar quantities of current used monthly. ihe old rite had four steps of twenty-five kilowatt hours each With a prot-ressive'v lower ia!r pei kilowail hour starting at l'5 cents. Th.e schedule consolidates ihese lour steps into die first 100 kilowatt hours cents less per month and makes an average rat-' of I It) percent prompt payment discount. It will be noted thai the Hunting rates go as low as 3 cents per kilowatt hour lor large quantities of current. The monthly minimum bill oi $1.(0 per meter remains unchanged.
