Claiborne Electric Annual Meeting

Last week, Claiborne Electric, an electric power distribution system that serves much of North Central Louisiana, had their annual meeting in Homer, LA. One of our correspondents was there.

Recently, Claiborne has been in a scrape with District Five Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell over their plans to build and operate an optical fiber internet system. Rural areas have typically not had high-speed broadband internet like that in urban areas, since the population density is much lower.

Claiborne had proposed to build such a system, but Campbell has worried that should the internet system not be profitable, Claiborne’s electric customers would be on the hook for making up any difference.

Our correspondent sent us these documents from the meeting:

    Campbell needs to read and understand the plans before he comments. He cannot and will not do that.

    I have not seen the plans, but it is likely a hybrid fiber/BPL system.
