Missouri Rural Electric Cooperative’s Board of Directors have approved the refund of capital credits.

The total amount of $446,236 will be refunded to the member-owners. Checks should be received the week of the Annual Meeting, which is Saturday, Sept. 16, at the Palmyra High School Gymnasium. Registration begins at 9 a.m., and the business meeting will start at 10 a.m.

At the close of each business year, any margins are allocated to the member-owners based on the amount of electricity purchased. These allocations are then returned to the member-owners as financial conditions permit. This is one of the advantages of being a member-owner of an electric cooperative.

To date, over 17.7 million dollars have been returned to member-owners during the past 55 years.
