Marketing Of Public Power
Restricted By Huge Joker In
Senate Committee Proposal
By PETER EDSON
NEA Washington Correspondent
WASHINGTON. A huge joker hai been found in Senate Ap
propriation! committee recommendations against the building of
government transmission lines from Bureau of Reclamation power
dams. It relates to proposed orders that the Department of Interior
make contracts with Pacific Gas and Electric Co. and Idaho Power
Co, similar to a contract now in force between the government's
Southwestern Power administration and the Texas Power and
The catch in this attempted
committee mandate is that th,(
Texas Power and Light contract
was a special agreement made to
fit peculiar circumstances not
found in the California and Idaho
areas. Forcing a Texas Power

restrict the government to devel
oping only secondary power to
supplement primary power de
veloped by the private compan
The Texas contract was drawn
up to handle only the public pow
er developed at Dennison dam.
This is a flood control dam built
by the Army engineers on the
Red river which lorms the boun
dary between southern Oklahoma
and Texas. Not enough water
flows through the Red river
throughout the year to make pos
sible the delivery of a large load
of firm power by Dennison dam
generators. But the water held
at Dennison dam during heavy
rainfall runoff is sufficient to de
liver a fair quantity of secondary
power for limited periods.
Good Deal For Both Sides
About the best Dennison can do
is deliver firm power for eight
hours a day, plus limited secon
dary power. This is hard power
to sell. Southwestern Power ad
ministration has no other gener
ating capacity in this territory to
tie into. But it does have a num
ber of potential preference cus
tomers among rural coopera
tives in the area. They could not
be served, however, because Tex
as Power and Light controls all
the transmission lines.
i On the other hand, Texas Pow
: er and Light was in the position
of needing reserve power for its
peak load periods in tne after
noon and evening. So here were
all the elements for a good trade.
Under the law Department of
: Interior Is selling agent lor pow

So In April, 197. Southwestern
Power Administrator Douglas
Wright made a contract for the
department with Texas Power
In brief. Southwestern Power
swapped its secondary power for
delivery at peaKioad periods, in
exchange for firm power from

livery to the government s co-op
