OTEC mails members capital credit info
Oregon Trail Electric Cooperative last week mailed members their annual notification of capital credit allocation. OTEC, as a not-for-profit electric cooperative, delivers electric service to members at cost.
When revenues exceed the operational expenses, OTEC allocates these operating margins back to the members. The amounts shown on the notice represent each members’ share of the operating margins realized by OTEC in the previous year as well as the cumulative unpaid capital credit balances.
These funds are returned to the members as the cooperative is deemed financially able by the board of directors.
“Allocating and retiring excess revenue to members helps distinguish the cooperative business model,” said OTEC Board of Directors President Greg Howard. “We’re proud to support our communities by putting money back into the local economy — and into the pockets of those we serve.”
These statements are a record of each members’ ownership in the cooperative and should be preserved. These notices are for information only, and are not negotiable and cannot be applied to a member’s electric bill.
