Donald M. Kreis


Vermont Law School, Institute for Energy and the Environment


Vermont Law School Research Paper No. 11-18

Abstract:     
Electric Cooperatives are in crisis, owing to management scandals and environmental controversies. This paper argues that a return to fundamental cooperative principles is in order and can be accomplished without compromising the independence and flexibility enjoyed by management at these utilities. Suggested reforms include transparency and good-governance initiatives.
