A patron of Economic Update asks: "I would like to hear your view of community owned coops with regards to utilities. I ask this because I am at the other end of the state proximal to Niagara Falls one of the largest hydropower sources on earth. Our electricity is provided by National Grid an investor owned consortium based in Spain, yet have some of the highest electric bills in the U.S. and no high speed internet.. Point of information National Grid also operates the power in England no thanks to Mrs. Thatcher."
