It Pays To Be a Member of EnergyUnited.
Because EnergyUnited is a not-for-profit utility, when we make money beyond our operating costs, we return that money to our members in the form of “capital credits.”
Capital credits are allocated to each member based on how much the individual paid the cooperative during a particular period. The amount of an individual capital credits refund depends on the length of time the member has been served by EnergyUnited and the amount the member has purchased from the cooperative.
In December 2013, EnergyUnited returned more than $3 million in capital credits. Any member that was scheduled to receive a capital credit of $15 or more was sent a check in the mail, but not everyone that was meant to receive a capital credit has claimed or deposited their check. Because the formula for distribution is based on prior years of operation, often customers who are entitled to capital credits have moved and it is difficult to locate them. If the U.S. Postal Service returns a capital check to us, we make every effort to locate the person entitled to the check.
Please review the list of unclaimed capital credits here. If you see your name or the names of family, friends or associates, please have them contact EnergyUnited at 800-522-3793.

EnergyUnited was formed in 1998 when electrical cooperative members overwhelmingly voted to consolidate Crescent and Davidson Electric Membership Corporations. These two established cooperatives served members for 60 years. Because it is a cooperative, EnergyUnited's members own the company, elect its board of directors, and vote on policies at annual meetings. The cooperative is not in business to make a profit, but to provide a needed service at the lowest possible cost to its members.
Electric cooperatives are owned and controlled by the customers they serve. They are formed to provide at-cost, reliable electric service to their members. At EnergyUnited, we are guided by our cooperative principles. Whether it’s providing a speaker for an elementary class safety demonstration, or sending high-schoolers on a week-long trip to Washington, DC, we are committed to the communities we serve.
