Notice to Our Customers
Our customers may be interested in the following statement
about alleged savings by users of water, gas and electricity. I
submitted the statement for publication in the World-Herald on
January 22.1944. but apparently it was not regarded as "news."
However, these so-called savings are a much misunderstood
subject and I want our customers to have the facts as 1 see them.
Using the same kind of figuring the World-Herald used is
publishing alleged savings to the people of Omaha in their gas
and water bills since 1912, the Nebraska Power Company has
saved Omaha citizens $180,836,000 during the same period of
The World-Herald published a story stating that the people of
Omaha have saved $29,000,000 in their gas and water bills since
the city acquired these two utilities.
By applying the electric rates that were in effect in Omaha in
1912 (the year Omaha bought the water plant), and based upon
the amount of electricity used in Omaha from that time to 1943.
the savings in electric service bills to the people of Omaha
would be $180,836,000.
As a utility operator. I cannot agree that such figures rep
resent actual savings, either in the case of the city-owned utilities
or of our own company. Had the rates that were in effect in
those bygone days remained the same, the people would never
have used the amount of service that they do, and so the figures
are purely in the class of "what might have been." All that these
figures show is that the Metropolitan Utilities District and the
Nebraska Power Company have passed on to the people rate
reductions made possible by improved efficiency and increased
In addition to the apparent saving in their cost of electric
service, I might also point out that since 1917 the Nebraska
Power Company has paid $13,312,700 in local taxes alone that
would otherwise have been paid by the people of this com
munity. And the Nebraska Power Company's total tax bill since
1917 has been $22,914,400. And that, too, might be unfair, be
cause managers and directors are forbidden by law to pay
taxes on city-owned properties.
