We've just asked the Michigan
Public Service Commission to allow us
to raise our electric rates for industries,
businesses, and homes.
If approved, the new rates would
provide about 11% more revenue to
enable us_ to keep up with population
growth. This works out to about a
nickel a day extra for our average
domestic customer.
We don't minimize the importance
of a nickel a day. That's $18.00 a year,
which can buy quite a few good things.
But we do want to put it in perspec-
tive. And we want you to know why
we need it, and what we're going to do
with it.
First, to put it in perspective, we
didn't want to ask for this increase.
We were forced to. We need additional
revenue to build the facilities to pro-
vide, in the future as in the past, fully
reliable electric service for every pur-
If the new rates are approved—and
the Public Service Commission will
spend months evaluating our need —
the average cost of a kilowatt-hour for
domestic customers will still be less
(as the graph above shows) than it
was in 1950. In that year, it was just
over 3 cents. With the new rates, it
will be about 2.6 cents.
Now why do we need it? In a word,

to here.

inflation. Our costs have gone up tre-
mendously. In the past five years, fuel ,:
has gone up 38%, labor 32%, local
taxes 23 %, and interest on bond issues
The cost of running our company
this year will increase far more than
the amount of our last rate increase.
What are we going to do with the
proceeds of this rate increase? The
most discouraging experience in these
days of inflation is to pay more, and
get less. Not so with this increase. It
will enable us to construct the facilities
to keep pace with the ever-increasing
demand for electricity for home and
Building new power plants is a job
that never ends because the demand
for electricity doubles every ten years.
But, in the last 3 years, the cost of
installing each new kilowatt of capacity
rose 40c).;,.
We will also be able to continue, and
indeed to enhance, our vital programs
for the improvement of air, land, and
water resources of the area.
We do not expect, anyone to be
pleased with a rate increase. But we
do ask them to try to understand why
we need it.
By receiving a little more in rates
today, we will be better able to meet
our many responsibilities tomorrow.
