The present thrust of BPA, as it reaches toward the goals of the future, is along the parallel lines of simultaneous planning, design, and development of 1. Long-distance EHV transmission lines to expanding and emerging industrial load centers in the Pacific Northwest and Southwest. 2. Digital controls, on a comprehensive systemic basis, to replace certain analog and manual controls. 3. An expansion of the telecommunications network for the instantaneous transmission and reception of data. 4. A long-range philosophy for service reliability that will minimize outages and service interruptions. These objectives will be closely coordinated with the plans of the Bureau of Reclamation, Corps of Engineers, and other public and private agencies for the construction of new power dams, the installation of additional generating units at existing facilities, and the building of thermal generating plants to meet the power demands of the next two decades.
