Thursday-Friday -Saturday

October 27, 1936
This letter is about Detroit Edison rates for electric service.
The Michigan Public Utilities Commission has made a long-time study of our rates,
and held public hearings. It has issued an opinion which shows the wide scope of the
study, and also shows the Commission's fair attitude, There are statements and figures in
that opinion with which we do not agree. It is not necessary that we should agree. The
important thing is that we will be guided by the rate order which is annexed to the Com-
mission's opinion.
The present General Commercial Rate is not changed. Neither is the rate for large
blocks of high tension electricity, sold to customers who have the knowledge and the means
to manage that high-power energy. The most important new rate will, we believe, be
acceptable to customers who use current daily for many hours. It requires that service
for all purposes be given through one meter instead of through separate meters for light
and for power.
About the new rate for residence service. This makes some reduction to every
customer except those who are paying the minimut bill of forty-five cents net per month,
or ninety cents net on the usual two-month bill. The Commission has done away with the
difference in rate between the small house and the large one, which formerly depended on
the number of rooms in the house. This room count plan worked well for 38 years. We do
not object to the change. It makes for simplicity.
The Commission in its opinion recognized that no figures set up for today could be
correct for evermore, amen! But they think and we hope that the present order will serve
for quite a while. They see that heretoforeawe have giventotour customers the advantage
of every economy which we have been able to make, There are a lot of conditions (besides
the increasing price of coal) which may tend to raise rates. Please notice ;now that the
40-hour week which we adopted in 1932, a year before the Blue Eagle was hatched, is likely
to stay with us. This means that a man or a girl in Detroit Edison service will have to
so manage his or her work, and have the work so arranged beforehand, that he or she can
earn a living wage in forty hours per week. It will probably require more money in the
payrolls. Again, next year there has to be taken out of an employe's pay one cent for
each dollar that is coming to him. This is his contribution towards what is called Social
Security. The Company will next year have to pay two cents for each dollar that the
employe receives. We are paying one cent this year.
About taxes. Not so long ago there was collected from us in taxes, payable to the
United States, or the State of Michigan, or the municipalities where we-do business,
7 cents out of every dollar which you paid us. Right now the figure is 14 cents out of
every dollar which you pay us. Maybe some of you think that you pay no taxes. Don't
believe it; You are paying taxes in a great many places and in a great many ways, but
these other places and other ways are not our scrape. Ours is that we are acting as tax
collectors to the extent of 14 cents out of every dollar that you pay us. And that is
not the end of it. All indications are that taxes will go up. You pay the taxes. It is
only out of what you pay us that we can pay them! And that's that!
The story of electric rate reductions is at its end for quite a while. We want
you to notice once more that every economy that we have been able to make--and these have
amounted to millions of dollars during the depression years--has been passed on to you in
rate reductions. We are making this rate reduction all over the thirteen counties which
we serve. We have always played fair with you and Oe will keep on doing so, We want you
to play fair with us, even if it proves that the rates have been let down too far.
Just one last word--maybe some of you rather like to pay taxes. If so, you pre-
sumably know what the taxes are spent for and whether they are spent wisely and economi-
cally. We have our own opinion about all that, but this is no place for us to offer
it. If you like to pay taxes, that is all right with us. Good luck to you!
