Significance: The Tule River Hydroelectric Project is significant for its contribution to the development of hydroelectric power which made possible the expansion of irrigated agricultural in the southern San Joaquin Valley, and for its association with A.G. Wilson who was both a founder of Mount Whitney Power Company and later, as president of San Joaquin Light & Power Company, Mount Whitney's bitter opponent and competitor. The Tule River Hydroelectric Project water conveyance system, although suffering significant alterations from the original, retains its historic setting and feeling of association with the past.
