QUESTION: Why do you charge a penalty when I Pay my electric bill a few days late? ANSWER: It is unfortunate that Some of our customers have this misunderstanding. We do not a penalty for late payment. We do offer worthwhile discount for early payment electric bills. The practice of allowing "prompt discounts" or "cash discounts" goes far in the history of American business. It is means of encouraging eady settlement of accounts--and early settlement of saves a lot of expense which have to be reflected in prices. A very large majority of Monongahela tomers pay their electric bills in time earn the prompt payment discount. This us the cash early enough that we can our bills in time to earn the discounts by our suppliers. And those discounts earn by prompt payment of our bills thousands of dollars that would have to be added to electric rates. The cost of electricity is higher today if our costs continue to increase, the must increase accordingly. One way you help hold increases to a minimum is by payment of your electric bill. But we also your help in conserving energy in every possible-- to conserve the diminishing resources of the country and to save for yourself. M0n0n@hela Power Part of the Allegheny Power System n
