Plugged In And Lit Up – Even In Tough Times

Over the last five years, consumers have downshifted their lifestyles by saving more[1] and cutting down on discretionary spending. However, spending is still strong for vital home services like electricity, gas, water, phone, cable, and garbage collection. While the average annual expenditure per consumer fell by 0.6% between 2006 and 2012, overall spending on utilities and related services steadily increased at a compound annual growth rate of 1.88% and 5.35%, respectively, in the same period[2]. As a result, sales and earnings growth for firms providing these essential residential utilities have remained steady regardless of costs or the overall economy. See more
