Capital Credits Recently Returned

The Board of Directors has approved a capital credit refund of $375,000. We’ve returned $8.6 million to date - It’s the Cooperative Difference!

We've recently issued bill credits and checks to current and former members for credits earned in 1992 and a portion of 1993. Current active members receiving credits less than $75 saw a credit on their June bill. Inactive members with credits over $5 and active members receiving credits larger than $75 received a check mailed to the address currently on file.
