Honors for Co-op Pioneer


Reprinted from Colorado Country Life magazine

I was reminded of the efforts of those who came before us in the electric cooperative program when I recently spent some time in the Dave Hamil Building at the Overland Trail Museum in Sterling.


Each summer, the general managers of Colorado’s electric co-ops meet to hear presentations on important issues and to talk shop. This summer, the meeting was hosted by Highline Electric Association, K.C. Electric Association and Y-W Electric Association in Sterling. In addition to touring Tri- State Generation and Transmission’s Highlands Wind Farm, the co-op managers heard from speakers on the recently proposed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency greenhouse gas rules and the use of drone technology for line inspections. They were also reminded of our history as we met at the Overland Trail Museum.
