February 8, 1980. This article recounts how state and federal authorities voiced concern on the issue of finding enough energy in the Northwest to satisfy electric customers? needs. In a related event, Sterling Munro of BPA calls for removing restrictions on all forms of energy resource development. The article also reports on the status of different nuclear and coal-fired power plant construction projects, any public opposition that accompanies them, and how both of these factors would influence the public?s electric rates.
