This article discusses a proposed rate increase on behalf of the Bonneville Power Administration during 1979. The rate changes would have affected Seattle?s electric rates by a potential 15% increase and they would have also greatly affected California?s power rates as California purchases some of its power from the PNW. The article further acknowledges the conflicts of opinion between the BPA, California congressional delegation, Pacific Gas & Electric, and the U.S. Dept of Energy.
