Kith and to percent were not Ergy planning forecasts As unpredictable As weather by Dan Black m j a Idle plants. Too few plants could result in shortages of the inter Lake staff analysis Mueller said the Region now has a surplus caused Largel to follow this by a sagging Economy. The Pacific Northwest alumni in by Dan Black of the inter Lake Taff try to follow this electricity in the Pacific Northwest is still cheap compared to the rest of the nation despite successive rate increases because it is cheap there has been heavy demand. Both residential and Industrial. Because of the heavy demand. The Region years Back began developing new sources of electric Power. Because the new sources a mostly nuclear plants a Are very expensive electricity rates Are going up because the rates Are going up customers Are Conse ving. Using less electricity. Because they Are using less. The utilities Aren t collecting enough Revenue and that is the basis for More rate increases. The higher rates Are jeopardizing some Industrial use. Particularly the aluminium Industry. If the aluminium Industry pulled out of the Northwest the regions existing Power surplus would be even greater the Revenue would be less and the rates would have to be higher to pay obligations on generating plants that must l paid for whether or not they generate Power. On the other hand if customers done to conserve if they use More Power the Region May not be Able to meet its Long term needs for electric Power and would have to develop new Power sources the Cost of new Power is mind boggling a Hundred times More expensive than Power from sources already in place. New Power would undoubtedly mean higher rates. Somewhere out of All that. The Northwest Power planning Council is supposed to develop a 20-year Energy plan for the Pacific Northwest. The Council must decide How much electricity is needed to meet future demand and which combination of conservation measures renewable resources and new Power plants will most efficiently meet that demand. The Council does not control electricity rates. However it will recommend Utility rate policies and suggest rate structures. The regions Energy future is Uncertain any earlier plan is now in disarray. The uncertainty results from Energy forecasts wide of the Mark huge Cost overruns on five Washington Public Power Supply system nuclear plants abandonment of at least two of those plants that Are already under construction. And abandonment of at least two private Utility nuclear plants on which construction had started in Kalispell last week the Council held the last of five workshops in Western Montana dealing with three key issues in electric Power planning How much electric Power is enough0 How can conservation of electricity Best be achieved How should electricity be priced0 Gerald Mueller Council member from Montana said the 20-year plan Hopes to assure adequate Power neither building too Many plants nor building too few to handle the regions electricity demands too Many plants would add to the Power surplus and would mean rate payers would have to pay More to cover the costs of the Idle plants too few plants could result in shortages Mueller said the Region now has a surplus caused largely by a sagging Economy. The Pacific Northwest aluminium Industry the largest Industrial user in the Region is currently operating at about 50-60 percent of capacity. A private Utility told Mueller it has experienced a 28-percent reduction in Industrial use. To even out future shortages and surpluses the Council is considering out of Region Sale of Power in the Case of a surplus contracts to Purchase Power from outside the Region shortages Cost efficient standby plants that could be operated for Short periods and Low Cost ways to adapt to times of shortages. The Council is considering a Range of incentives and regulations that would encourage or require conservation of electricity. Already Public and private utilities encourage conservation by offering such incentives As Low or no interest Loans for Home weatherization rising rates fur electric Power Mueller said. Are already an incentive for conservation among residential commercial and Industrial ratepayers he said there is still excellent potential for further conservation among All users one suggestion that won favor at thursday s workshop session would establish a Quot lifeline rate to protect those on fixed incomes from continuing rate increases for minimum electrical needs. The Council solicits recommendations they should be addressed to the Council at Capitol station.
