Electricity and Water As a Gift

Looking for a practical gift to give this holiday season. Why not a gift certificate for electricity or water. Robert talks with Terry Torres, who's the director of residential customer service for the Orlando Utilities Commission. Torres says they're offering gift certificates in denominations of $10, $25 and $50 to give to parents, grandparents, neighbors, and college students. The recipients of the certificates redeem them by including them with their bills. According to today's Wall Street Journal, gift certificates are also available for utility payments in Nashville, Tennessee, Norwich, Connecticut, and Kissimmee, Florida.
