Abstract:
Located in the northwestern section of the country, where fuel costs are high, it is natural that the Portland electric companies should have early appreciated the abundant stream flow characteristic of the region, which results from the high precipitation on the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains and in the Willamette Valley and which was rendered available for their power purposes by the sucessful development of high tension electric transmission for the distances involved in delievering such hydo-electric power to their markets.
