What are capital credits?
Because Continental Divide is a not-for-profit, member-owned cooperative, its governing board of trustees periodically returns margins (capital credits) to its members. Trustees determine the amount annually, based on the financial condition of the co-op. Allocations are based on the amount of electricity used by the member during the year(s) that working capital was collected.
Why does Continental Divide need my help finding people?
Every fall, we publish a special section in the enchantment that lists the names of current and former Continental Divide members who are entitled to "unclaimed property," a legal term we are required to use. This property is a capital-credit check(s), previously issued by Continental Divide. A capital-credit check goes unclaimed when it is returned to the co-op by the U.S. Postal Service as undeliverable to the mailing address that we currently have on file.
