Avista's Larry La Bolle Returns to IEEE Spokane with an Updated and Illustrated History: 1889--2020  

IEEE Spokane is pleased to present the second, concluding episode of the IEEE WWP/Avista historic series, offered at 5 pm on Wed Oct 28 virtually via Zoom, and titled “Washington Water Power: The White-Water Years.”   This last visual episode will detail the turbulent post war years of the company. 

The journey will take us through the post-war development of WWP’s then-modern utility system to the recent failed Hydro One episode.  Additional topics include the struggles with public power and upheavals like the Western Energy Crisis.   

As in the previous episode, this history of one of the region’s most historic companies will be told through Larry’s superb collection of historic photos, allowing the listener to really see and feel like they were there!
