Cooperative Business Model
The cooperative way of doing business is not about making money, but about serving its members. We are guided by core values established when the cooperative movement began in the early days of electrification.
Your not-for-profit cooperative is owned and controlled by you, the members; there are no outside investors. Member-ownership means:
- You elect fellow members to the Board of Directors who make the policies that control the operation of the cooperative.
- We create and enforce strong internal control policies to safeguard cooperative assets.
- We maintain accurate accounting records and respond promptly to financial requirements.
- Any amount of the cooperative’s monthly bills that are in excess of the actual operating costs are credited to each member based on the member's consumption of energy during the year. (See Capital Credits)
