We’re also helping our customer-owners use less electricity, so they save even more.

Even with the recent rate increase so City Light can invest in reliability improvements, maintenance and other customer service initiatives, it only costs $2.09 for a typical residential customer to power his or her home for an entire day — lights, TV, washing machine, dryer, microwave oven, stereo, charging the cell phone and more.

That’s real value.

You could spend that much on a cup of coffee, an eight-pack of colored pencils, a Betta fish or a 250-count box of toothpicks.

A Betta fighting fish can be energetic, but it won’t power your day.
