• listen to a stereo for 50 hours

• work on a computer for 56 hours
• wash clothes for 20 hours

The typical family spends only 3 percent of its income on electricity, according to Woods & Poole Economics, Inc. Make your own list of everything you get for only 3 percent of your income.

The average Midwest Electric bill is less than $6 a day. That’s about the cost of a fast food value meal. Which is the greater value? A Big Mac meal, or everything that electricity does for your family – lights, fans, heat, air, refrigeration, cooking, cleaning, entertainment and so much more.

The average Midwest Electric bill is less than $40 per week. That’s about the cost for a night out at the movies. Which is the greater value? One night at the theater, or an entire week of everything electricity does for your family – heating, cooling, lights, fans, air, refrigeration, cooking, cleaning, entertainment and more.
