Capital Credits are a popular benefit for our members and a good example of the many ways we put service before profit. Each year, all revenue over and above expenses is assigned by the cooperative to each member's Capital Credit account. The amount assigned to an individual account is determined by the member's yearly revenue paid for energy.
In the Year 2012, over 4 million dollars were returned to the membership. Capital Credits are a benefit of membership in a member-owned utility. If you move, be sure to leave your forwarding address with us so we can send your Capital Credit check to you.
