0 There's quite a piece of country in our Pendleton District. It stretches
across the wheat lands and over the hills to Heppner, Lexington and lone.
Then there's Hermiston, Umatilla, Stanfield, Echo, Pilot Rock, Helix,
Adams, Rieth. And, it takes a lot of "knaw how" to meet all the differ
ent electric service problems to be found in such an ara.
But, the PP&L organization is accustomed to meeting all kinds of
problems, and has the system resources to back up every one of its 12
operating districts. It's a team organization, tested by experience and full
of resourcefulness. And when some unusual problem arises, the key men
know that expert advice and help is no farther away than the telephone.
This has a lot to do with the fact that your electric service goes on, with
out your thinking about it, 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year. It's one
of the things you don't have to worry about and one of the tew things
that isn't costing more money. In fact, PP&L's average residential rate
today is less than half of what it was 15 years ago exactly 4.3 below
the present low U. S. national average!
Every visitor who ever has seen Pendleton
at "Round-Up" time is sure to carry away a
colorful picture of that world-famous four-day
celebration. But that is only a part of the Pendle
ton story. The year around, this area presents a
pageant of productivity against the deep and
stirring backdrop of the Blue Mountains. Wheat,
cattle,sheep,timber,hay,saddles,and cow ponies!
They're all a part of the economic picture. In the
same way, the much more widely diversified ac
tivities of all 12 PP&L operating districts make
for a rugged, dependable electric system. Because
PP&L serves a complete cross-section of the
great Columbia Basin, users all over the system
have their electric service protected against local
adversities. Through the years they have found
benefits of this business-managed system opera
tion consistently reflected in lower rates.
