What is a capital credit retirement?
Capital credits are the margins that Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative, as a member-owned, at-cost organization, allocates to our members as a return on their equitable investment into the Co-op. When finances permit, capital credits are retired to members based on how much electricity each member used in a given calendar year.
