BRIEFLY

A court upheld a ruling on access to electricity.

April 29, 1985

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld a Bonneville Power Administration policy that regulates the sale of power on the high-voltage Pacific Northwest-Southwest Intertie. That policy, which toughened regulations beginning last July, sparked a lawsuit against Bonneville, a federal agency, by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, a major buyer of surplus power on the intertie. The DWP claimed that the policy was illegal because it excluded one of its Canadian suppliers from intertie access, preventing the DWP from buying cheaper power.
