Whitefish Energy Contract Terminated

As widely reported in the general media today, Puerto Rico terminated the $300 contract it had otherwise executed with tiny Montana company Whitefish.  As reported by the New York Times, a federal investigation of the contract award process had been initiated just as the power authority had appointed a trustee to review contract bidding.  The Puerto Rico Governor stated that no wrongdoing had been discovered, but that the contract had become a “distraction” and that attention had to be refocused on restoring service to the island.
