I just received my electric bill from AmerenUE. Inside was my Personal Energy Report, which lays out how much electricity we’ve used in each of the last three years, broken down monthly. And right there in the middle of the page is this useful reminder:

“Remember…reducing your usage will reduce your monthly bill!”

Gee, thanks. Right back atcha:

“Remember…reducing the amount of useless information you mail to your customers will cut down on your printing and postage costs, allowing you to pass along the savings and reduce rates!”
