Osmose Utilities will begin testing poles in the South Montrose substation area on July 12. You can expect to see Osmose employees crossing your property, and potentially, digging around our utility poles. This is a yearly program we do to ensure our poles are safe. We anticipate that the project will be completed within 3-4 months. We appreciate your cooperation.
When the Cooperative has margins (revenues minus expenses) at the end of the year, those margins are allocated (spread) to active members based on their electric usage during that year. Annually, the board of directors determines if the Cooperative is in a financial position to distribute any margins or capital credits back to the members. This is called a capital credit retirement and is given to the members in either a bill credit, or in the case of an inactive member, a check.
