because TRECO is an absolute joke. thats why.
TRECO is not governed by anyone, as a co-op they pretty much can screw you over with complete immunity.
Once, I lost power 145 times over a 30 day period.
(TRECO employee count, not mine) and after complaining to Alan See, a complete oxygen thief by the way, I was goaded into showing up at a TRECO board meeting over in Ashland.
Other than scaring the crap out of everyone, it accomplished little.
Alan See would not even stand up for himself, and was quite humble with an angry, large individual in front of him.
I am seriously considering going completely off grid because of this joke of a public utility. and the COMPLETE lack of government oversight for the yahoo's that run the co-ops in Montana.
