Latest from Claverack REC
We have had numerous calls from members over the last few weeks with reports that they are not receiving their Claverack bills in the mail. We have contacted our billing company, and they have confirmed that all bills were processed and sent to the USPS. The delays throughout the USPS are due to unprecedented volume increases and limited employee availability due to the impacts of COVID-19.

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.
Claverack Rural Electric Cooperative will return $1.7 million in capital credits to members and former members of the cooperative beginning in mid-May.
