step-son and soarin-law who is now a Captain in the Army.
An unbeatable; combination of soil, climate and water has
made the lower Yakima Valley famous for its diversity
I of products. In recent years, the valley has forged ahead
still further with the development of canning, dehydra
tion, quick-freeging and other processing plants. Every
step toward diversification brings the valley greater year-‘
round stability- just as the much morewidely diversified
activities of all 12 PP&L operating districts make for a
strong, dependable electric system. Because PP&L serves
a complete cross-section of the great Columbia Basin,
users all over the system have their electric service pro
tected against local adversities. Through the years they
have found the benefits of this business-managed system
operation consistently reflected in lower and lower rates.

C If you could spend a day with one of our men
covering the Sunnyside district—you’d get a real pic
ture of just what diversification means.
Out through the country, you‘d see farmers working
with almost every possible crop. And, in the towns
near-by, you’d see industry following suit—helping to
process and market the district’s many products.
As a part of all this picture, you’d see electricity
doing all kinds of unusual jobs. But. the PP&L organ
ization is accustomed to meeting unusual problems
and has the System resources of man-power and tech
nical knowledge to back up every one of its 12 operating
districts. More than that, every one of the key men
who is responsible for your electric service gained his
’working knowledge here in the Northwest.
This learning right-on-the-ground. plus the team
work that goes with it, are the main reasons why ydur
PP&L electric service has been able to take such an
active part in the development of the Northwest—why
it is now able to supply residential service at rates
43% below the national average!
