This Presidents Day, we recognize President Franklin Delano Roosevelt who signed the Bonneville Project Act to deliver the massive benefits of Columbia River hydropower — clean, inexpensive electricity — to citizens of the Pacific Northwest.

It was a revolutionary and compassionate idea — to bring down the barriers between the rural poor and dreams of a better life by providing power at the cost of production, rather than for profit.

Since then, much has changed. The Northwest economy has expanded a thousandfold. People use electricity to power gadgets that no one would have dreamed of back in the ’30s. What hasn’t changed is the source of our power — the mighty waters of the Columbia — and our commitment to the public good.
