History of the
Washington Public Power Supply System (WPPSS),
now called "Energy Northwest"

Hydro-thermal Power Plan A history of the WPPSS plan for nuclear power in Washington State, which was "remarkable for its wrong turns, faulty forecasts, management blunders, betrayal of public trust and huge cost overruns that resulted in the largest municipal bond default in United States history to that time." This plan ultimately forced the region's electricity consumers to pay debt service on bonds for uncompleted nuclear power plants 44 years into the 21st century.
