Part of what sets us apart from the larger Investor Owned Utilities (IOUs) is that Electric Membership Cooperatives (EMCs) are not for profit. This means that any revenue that is collected after covering our operation costs is returned to our members in the form of Capital Credits based on each member's energy usage for a given year. Southern Rivers Energy typically refunds capital credits on a 15 year rotation which means in 2011, refunds were sent out for the year 1996 and half of the year 1997.
Southern Rivers Energy refunded almost $1.4 million in patronage capital or "capital credits" in 2011. To date the cooperative has refunded more than $13.7 million to its members. For questions regarding capital credits please contact the head of our patronage capital department, Blythe Shore at 770-358-1383 ext. 304 or toll free, 877-358-1383.
Currently SRE is attempting to find the owners of capital credit refunds issued in 2007 whose checks were never claimed. To view a list by name or last known address, click on one of the documents below. The last date to claim these funds is 5 p.m., Sept. 13, 2013.
