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 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 in December.
To date the cooperative has refunded more than $15.4 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.
Currently, SRE is attempting to locate former members whose capital credit checks were issued in 2011 but were returned as "undeliverable" or have otherwise been unclaimed.
Below is a list of members by name as well as a separate list by address only in order to protect members' privacy. Please search either or both lists and contact April Sorrow with any questions or to claim these funds.
