2003 Pacific Northwest Loads and Resources Study
(2003 White Book)
     (updated December 16, 2004)

The 2003 Pacific Northwest Loads and Resources Study (2003 White Book) is a snapshot of conditions as of March 31, 2004, documenting the loads and resources for the Federal system and region for the 10-year study period OY 2005 through 2014. The White Book contains projections of regional and Federal system load and resource capabilities, along with relevant definitions and explanations. The White Book also contains information obtained from formalized resource planning reports and data submittals including those from individual utilities, the Northwest Power and Conservation Council (Council), and the Pacific Northwest Utilities Conference Committee (PNUCC). The 2003 White Book consists of a Summary Document and a 2-volume Technical Appendix.

To request a printed copy of the 2003 White Book Summary Document, please contact the BPA Public Information Center and ask for the 2003 Pacific Northwest Loads and Resources Study (DOE/BP-3559).
