Electrical cooperative says new rates needed to help sustain electrical grid as it nears 100% carbon free energy. Solar installers see it very differently.

Colorado a century ago was poorly connected by roads. Its electrical utilities still are poorly linked. Why they need energy markets.and how that may happen.
