6. What are Capital Credits?
Capital credits are how the utility assigns a portion of the margin left over, after covering operating expenses, to the member owners of the cooperative. Capital credits represent a member’s portion of the margin the utility generated, but they are not cash and they can’t be cashed in or used to pay your bill. Negative margins (operating losses) are used to offset future year’s positive net margin.
7. What is the difference between a Capital Credit allocation and a distribution?
Capital credits are allocated to member accounts each year and become a permanent record of member equity until retired. Retirement occurs when the Cooperative is in a strong financial position that allows maintenance and expansion of services and a payment of a portion of member’s equity (their allocated capital credits). In the past, the Board has chosen to reinvest earnings into new services like wireless. We are happy to report that our financial position will allow both service expansion and capital credit retirement later in 2011. Thanks for doing business with the company you own.
