As a member owned entity, the Cooperative allocates any revenue generated over and above the cost of doing business back to our members. These margins are called Capital Credits and are assigned to each member proportionally, based on their electrical usage.
Capital credits are returned to members over time through a capital credit retirement approved by the Board of Trustees. Until then, capital credits remain part of the capital invested in the cooperative so we can continue to build and improve our infrastructure and distribution system.
Because capital credits are retained for a number of years before they are retired, it is important to keep a current address on file with the Cooperative even if you are no longer an active member.
