When you signed up to receive electric service from Clark County REMC, you became a member of an electric cooperative. One of the many special features of an electric co-op is that any revenue left over at the end of the year, after operating costs are paid, is returned to our members in the form of capital credits. These credits are allocated annually and then refunded depending on the financial health of your REMC. The amount of each allocation and retirement is based on how much electricity individual members used during that period. At Clark County REMC, every customer is an owner of the business. And, as a member-owner, you share in the profits in the form of capital credit refunds.
If you move or no longer have electric service with Clark County REMC, it is important that members keep their address current, so that future disbursements can be properly mailed. Capital credits are reserved for members even if they move out of the service area. The REMC will make a diligent effort to send a check by mail.
