June 1953
New Republic;6/29/53, Vol. 128 Issue 26, p2
The article presents information that the Idaho Power Company plans to build three lower dams and power plants which would develop 783,000 kw compared with approximately 900,000 kw in the federal project. The Hell's Canyon Dam as planned by the government would generate 688,000 kw of prime power at the site, plus an additional 432,000 to 724,000 at lower dams, through regulation of the stream flow. According to estimates presented in these hearings, the one low dam proposed plus the four low dams contemplated in the private power company plans would provide a total of 375,000 to 500,000 of prime power.
