After reading a short article by John Jeffrey, I am left wondering if we need a Maritime Electric. There are many co-ops in rural NYS that provide much the same service and the customers reap the financial benefits. I don’t know enough about the subject but it does raise a question in my mind. 

I have long thought MEC provides a reliable product at an arguably competitive rate. However is there a better way?  A monoply seldom benefits other than the monoply. 

As MEC appears to be mostly a broker of power is there a more efficient distribution model?
