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 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 $18.2 million to its members. For questions regarding capital credits please contact Customer Service at 770-358-1383 or toll free, 877-358-1383.

Below is a list of checks were returned as undeliverable for the years 2019 and 2020.

Last Attempt to Reach Owners of Unclaimed Capital Credit Checks

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 2015, but which have been returned by the U.S. Post Office as "undeliverable" or have otherwise been unclaimed.

The last possible date to claim these funds is Aug. 6, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. If these funds are not claimed by this date, they will be donated for charitable uses, as permitted by O.C.G.A. § 44-12-236.
