IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO OUR MEMBERS:
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.
