This article outlines some details on the BPA?s proposed budget for fiscal year 1981, which includes $25 million for buying replacement power from firms. Supposedly, the issue was, in part, due to anticipated power shortages because of critical stream flows and weather conditions but also related to the behind-schedule construction of planned new power-producing facilities. The article further explains budget information of the Bonneville Power Administration and how Congress approval is needed for some projects.
