Kristin Johnson, a year-old lawyer, summed up her planned vote to oust the company, Xcel Energy , in seven succinct words. Xcel, a Minneapolis-based company that supplies electricity across eight states, including most of Colorado, is fighting back hard, arguing that a divorce would be devastatingly expensive for Boulder residents through higher electricity rates and start-up costs. And if talk of home-rule is really about having more renewable, carbon-reduced energy generation, well then, the company has said in advertisements and letters to residents, a big corporation with deep pockets can help get there cheaper and faster than any city, however well intentioned. Leaders of the effort concede that huge challenges await if the city goes forward, and that Xcel is not the worst provider to have.
