Article references the power consumption record that Washington Water Power Co. observed in January of 1980. Northcentral Washington saw temperatures more than twenty degrees below zero while Spokane?s official temperature dipped to record lows. This consequently affected power consumption, forcing WWP to borrow power from Southern California Edison in Los Angeles, California and Pacific Power & Light Co. in Portland, OR for the few hours of extreme cold. If such temperature patterns were to continue, they would pose a problem for energy consumption and Stanley G. Witter, WWP spokesperson, appealed to customers to save power in every way possible.
