Frequent contacts are made with potential industrial customers throughout the United States who might be interested in establishing power-consuming plants in the Pacific Northwest. Services of various types are rendered to customers under sales contracts for the purpose of making their power use more efficient and increasing that use.

Factors other than direct negotiations with customers and potential customers are involved. Surveys must be made to determine both existing and potential power markets as a prelude to the planning and construction of transmission systems. Surveys also are made of the power needs of the Pacific Northwest as a whole and of various portions thereof. Similar investigations are undertaken with respect to proposed power projects to determine their capacity, the cost of transmission and marketing of power, and the ultimate economic feasibility of such projects. Special, as well as long range, studies on the economic, industrial and agricultural resources of the region, particularly as they relate to power sales and programming of power facilities, form a part of such surveys. Many research activities, including power transmission, new uses for power, and economics relating to the development of the area and increased power consumption are performed.

The proposed rates, after being reviewed by the Division of Power, are submitted to the Secretary for approval, and, with respect to the Bonneville project, to the Federal Power Commission for confirmation pursuant to the requirements of the Bonneville Project Act.
