Why Electricity Distribution Companies Should Start Sending Bills Through Email

We are of the view that electricity distribution companies should start sending bills through email. There are several reasons to back that argument.

For one, if electricity distribution companies started sending bills through email, they’d save a lot of money in terms of postage fees. The money spend per person may seem small, but for the whole nation, the figure is astronomical.

Secondly if electricity distribution companies started sending bills through email, they’d save a lot of money that they’d otherwise have spent on printing paper.

Thirdly, if electricity distribution companies started sending bills through email, they’d be doing the environment a huge favor.

Of course, we appreciate that not everybody uses email. But we are of the opinion that getting everybody to start using email is not hard. Sites like gmailcomlogin.biz have all the instructions people need to get started with email, and resources like the Gmail sign up page allow for free accounts to be created. And then again, we are living in an age where almost everybody uses emails and there is really no reason for the electricity companies to continue sending bills through the postal system unless there are some vested interests or something else that we don’t quite understand about the whole venture.

How to Get College Students to Appreciate the Cost of Electricity

College students tend to misuse electricity in their hostels. And thanks to this, their colleges often end up having to pay huge sums of money, in terms of electricity bills. Against that background, a question comes up, as to how college students can be made to appreciate the cost of electricity.

As it turns out, the first way in which college students can be made to appreciate the cost of electricity would be by installing meters in their hostels: so that they are charged directly for the electricity they consume.

The second way in which college students can be made to appreciate the cost of electricity would be by having that cost of electricity included as one of the items in their college fees bills. This way, they still get to pay for electricity, even if personal meters are not installed in their hostels.

Of course, these measures may come across as punitive, especially considering the modest means of most students, whose only reliable source of money is the government, through my ed account loans which the students normally apply for each year at www.fafsa.gov. Still, if it is the only thing that can work in terms of getting the students to appreciate the cost of electricity, it can be done.
