A Colorado electrical coop has embarked on a cutting edge project to learn how to use batteries to shave peak wholesale costs. A school bus has homework, too.
Colorado-based wholesale supplier Tri-State G&T scored two small wins this week in cases involving dissident co-ops United Power and La Plata Electric.
United Power would pay $234.8 million to leave Tri-State Generation & Transmission under a methodology recommended by an administrative law judge to the Colorado Public Utilities Commission.
The dispute that threatens to break apart Colorado’s second largest electrical supplier will likely be resolved in Colorado, not Washington D.C. Somehow, all sides in the case managed to proclaim success after reviewing the order from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission posted on March 20.
