The purpose of this Appendix is to show the present power needs and existing generating capacity in the Willamette Basin, to determine future power needs, to identify potential projects in the basin which could be developed for power generation, and to evaluate potential projects as to their utility for power development. The power potentials within the basin are presented from a single-purpose viewpoint to determine the maximum extent to which the water resource could be developed for power generation. Power requirements, load characteristics, interconnections, and power-source potentials are projected to the years 1980, 2000, and 2020. These projections are the basis for planning long-range, comprehensive water resource development. The 1980 estimates provide the basis for development of a plan to meet early power needs of the basin. The longer-term appraisals are more conjectural and tentative.
