Capital credits are your return-on-investment in Cass County Electric Cooperative.
Throughout the year, we track how much electricity you buy and how much money you pay for it. At the end of the year, we complete our financial matters and determine whether there are excess revenues, called margins. Then we allocate the margins to members as capital credits based upon their use of electricity during the year. When our financial condition permits, your board of directors decides to retire, or pay, the capital credits.
In March, active members who purchased power in 1998 and 1999 will see a capital credit-earning applied to their bill. Inactive members with current addresses on file will receive a check in the mail. This retirement also applies to members who received estate payments and early retirements.
A list of individuals whose capital credit checks were returned or uncashed after the most recent payout was published in the October Highline Notes.
