    Watch here as David Miller, from Boulder Smart Energy Coalition, refuses to name his donors and denies any connection or receipt of money from Xcel during questioning by Councilmember Macon Cowles, on the evening of August 2, 2011.

    I think it is a fair question for Xcel’s customers to ask: Is Xcel spending ratepayer money to “aggressively fight” the city of Boulder?
