Capital Credits

Part of what sets electric membership cooperatives or EMCs apart from the larger investor-owned utilities (IOUs) is that EMCs are not-for-profit. This means that any revenue that is c
ollected 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 in December.

To date the cooperative has refunded more than $18.2 million to its members. For questions regarding capital credits please contact the head of our patronage capital department, April Sorrow at 770-358-1383 ext. 320 or toll free, 877-358-1383.

In 2017, SRE returned margins or capital credits, for a portion of years 2001 and 2002, some of which were returned to us undeliverable due to insufficient addresses. CLICK HERE to view this list of names.


In compliance with O.C.G.A. § 44-12-236 of The Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act, Southern Rivers Energy is attempting to locate former members whose capital credit checks were issued in 2012, but which have been returned by the U.S. Post Office as “undeliverable” or have otherwise been unclaimed.

A current list of these members, with their last known names and addresses are posted below and at our corporate office at 1367 Hwy 341 South in Barnesville, GA, for review between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM, Mon. – Fri.
