COREY, District Manager at The Dalles since 1925, points out a section of the transmission network linking together 150 generating plants now cooperating in the Northwest Power Pool.

That's just one of the things our District Managers have to think about. It's one of the reasons why the electric business all over America long ago outgrew the stage where one community or one district, could adequately handle its own power needs. , Today, for example, the line that runs to your home is an integral part of a carefully planned network of feeder lines, transmission lines, and the thousands of local circuits that make up the PP&L system. Because we have this system with its veteran or ganization of trained people behind your service, you seldom know when emergencies arise. But, there's another advantage that's easy to see for system efficiency means economy.

In the same way, the much more widely diversified activities of all 12 PP&L operating districts make for a rugged, depend able electric system. Because PP&L serves a complete cross-section of the great Columbia Basin, users nil over the system have their electric service protected against local adversities. Through the years they have fotind the benefits of tin's business-managed system operation consistently reflected in lower and lower rates.
