CORINTH, Texas—September 30, 2019—The CoServ Electric Board of Directors has approved a Capital Credit retirement of $19 million for CoServ Electric Members.

Since 2003, $146 million has been returned to CoServ Members.

Because CoServ Electric is a nonprofit cooperative, excess revenues over expenses are divided proportionally by the amount of electricity each CoServ Member uses throughout the year. These margins, called Capital Credits, are allocated each year to Members and former Members. At the discretion of the CoServ Board, these Capital Credits are retired (paid).

This year, Members with retirements of $200 and above received a check; those with retirements below $200 received a credit on their accounts. Former Members and estates received checks via the U.S. Postal Service.

In additon, Capital Credits also were retired this year related to Brazos Electric Power Cooperative, our generating and transmission provider. These distributions were made in September.
