Abstract:

This Appendix was prepared to provide information on past and future requirements of a market for power in the NAR, which is served in a coordinated manner by a group of interconnected electric utilities. Historic and estimated future to the year 2020 electric power requirements are presented. The power market area varies geographically from the study region because it was selected to follow Federal Power Commission Power Supply Area boundaries. Data are presented by sub-areas which correspond to PSAs or groupings thereof within the power market. Estimates are made of the types of electric generating stations which will supply the future power requirements. The production of electric power from steam and hydroelectric plants involve the consumptive and non-consumptive use of large quantities of water, and is therefore among the principal purposes which the Regions water resources are called upon to serve.
