Electricity. It’s one of our most abundant, indispensable resources. It provides comfort and stability in our lives, and it’s so dependable that many of us don’t think about electricity until the power goes off. You might think a resource like that would come at a high cost, but it has remained amazingly affordable.
At West Florida Electric Cooperative (WFEC) we know every dollar matters. You want to stretch every cent as far as it will go, so you might be surprised to learn how far a dollar’s worth of electricity can go. For example, you could make 604 slices of toast, brew 11 pots of coffee and run your refrigerator for 26 hours.
Electricity is also a tremendous value when compared to the cost of goods like beef and gasoline over the years. While some consumer goods have experienced dramatic or unpredictable changes in price, electric costs have remained stable – even while the cost of generating and delivering electricity has increased.
Sound like value? Here are some other things you can get for every dollar you spend on electricity:
• 400 smoothies in your blender
• 154 microwaved meals
• 128 hours of laptop use
• 17 hours of use from your deep freeze
• 96 hours of cool air from your ceiling fan
• 96 uses of your hair dryer
• 22 hours of play time on the Xbox One or Playstation 5
• 55 gallons of homemade ice cream
• 15 loads of laundry in the washing machine
That’s the value of electricity. As your local, member-owned electric cooperative, WFEC remains committed to safely delivering clean, safe, and reliable electricity to your home, at a cost that's affordable.
