STEVENS POINT LIGHTING COMPANY
|Taken From "Along the Wisconsin River" By A. Decker, 1907|
No one can deny the cleanliness and convenience of gas when used for fuel or the superiority of electricity as a power, while combining all the characteristics of gas in the matter of economy, cleanliness and convenience.
Stevens Point, like many other enterprising cities and towns of the state, has one plant which adds more luster to the commercial life of the place than all the others combined.
This company owns and operates an electrical and gas plant and they are giving entire satisfaction to their customers. Their electric power plant is located on the Plover River, five miles from the city and has 550-horse power. This company furnishes gas for cooking and lighting purposes giving their customers the convenience of all modern advantages along this line. This company guarantees to furnish electric power for manufacturing purposes at Stevens Point at as low a rate as it can be furnished at any other point in Wisconsin. Both plants are under one management and up-to-date in every respect.
Stevens Point is fortunate in having one of the best lighting and electric power plants in the state. The time has come in the development of Stevens Point when nothing but electricity will keep step with her rapid development.
