Announcing A Price Increase

Dear Sir,

Electric Lines Inc. wants you to be satisfied with your electric service. In
order to ensure service during heavy storms, we have recently installed two
new devices at our area substations that will help us bring your power back
more quickly when lightning strikes occur.

The investment necessary to provide this additional protection forces us to
increase our prices by 8 percent starting April 1. This price increase has
been approved by our regulating governmental agency. You will be receiving a
brochure outlining our new prices.

Thank you for your understanding. We want only to provide the utmost in
service.

Sincerely,

More sales letters
