The coop initiated the disconnection when the couple, who operate a small wind turbine in the coop's territory, refused to pay their bill for back-up power.  The couple claim they are entitled to credits for power sold back to the coop under the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act but they are seeking payment based on a rate far higher than the coop's avoided cost rate.
