Delta Electric Co-Op Quits CREA

The Delta-Montrose Electric Association (DMEA) has pulled out of the Colorado Rural Electric Association (CREA) in retaliation for its support of HB 1098, which provides for additional election oversight of rural electric co-ops.

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Claire Levy (D-Boulder) mandates that co-ops adopt and post an election policy online, give advance notice of election dates and ballot mailings and reveal campaign contributions by co-op employees. It was introduced due to claims from green candidates that elections were stacked in favor of longtime board members and those dedicated to traditional sources of energy.
