We enjoy the luxury and freedom of communication via the cell phone. It makes our lives a little better, and a little safer, so we just pay the monthly phone bill, no grumbling, and enjoy the technology.


ell phones and personal devices have become a part of our culture. It seems everyone nowadays is connected in one way or another,


BY TERRY MATLOCK chief executive officer


Over the past 30 years, the amount of electricity used by appliances has increased from 17 to 31 percent. Today’s households use electricity for major appliances like air conditioners, DVR’s, computers, TV’s and cell phones chargers. Nearly a third of the U.S. households today have at least four electronic devices plugged into electricity charging at any given time.


So the next time you run the dishwasher or wash a load of laundry,


With electricity, a modern day necessity, we all tend to grumble a little when the electric bill arrives every month. We expect the electricity to be there at the flip of the switch, and when it’s not, we expect it to be on again in short order. I am no different. I expect the lights to come on when I flip the switch!


Now consider these facts: Over the past 10 years gasoline, bread, milk and eggs have increased in price substantially, and the same goes for about every other commodity we enjoy including water. When compared to these other commodities, electricity really is a great value.


While electricity has also increased in price over the past ten years, so has the service and dependability. We’re proud of the men and women at CEC who work hard to make that reliability happen 24 hours a day, seven days a week, rain, shine, sleet or snow.


consider our growing appetite for electricity. When you take your cell phone off the charger or simply flip the switch to turn on the lights, I hope you will think about how valuable your electricity really is.
