Contents Notes
"On the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Bonneville Power Administration in 1987, the agency published a history,"BPA & The Struggle for Power at Cost." It covered the origin of BPA and the early days of electrical service in the Pacific Northwest to the mid-1980s. This book,issued for BPA's 75th anniversary,picks up roughly where that volume left off. It begins with the 1980 passage of the Pacific Northwest Electric Power Planning and Conservation Act,usually called the Northwest Power Act,a milestone that reshaped the region's energy picture and has influenced BPA's course ever since. The story then covers BPA,s march to the millennium and beyond"--P. vii.
