Introduction

 

INTRODUCTION

     The Power Plant Siting Act of 1971 (Sec. 3-303) established the Power Plant Research Program (formerly the Power Plant Siting Program) to insure that demands for electric power would be met in a timely manner at a reasonable cost while assuring that the associated environmental impacts would be acceptable. The goals of the program include predicting the impact of proposed new generating facilities, evaluating the acceptability of proposed transmission line routes, assessing the impact of existing generating facilities, forecasting future demand for electric power, and investigating numerous information gaps through a long-range research program.

     This bibliography is a compilation of over 700 reports of electric power related studies conducted by the Power Plant Research Program since 1971. This online version of the bibliography provides links to those documents available online.
