Capital Credits to be listed on April/May bills

New Hampshire Electric Cooperative will be allocating positive operating margins to each of its members’ accounts based on their individual usage.  As a result, a line item pertaining to “capital credits” will appear on the bottom of your April and/or May bills (see message below).  It will indicate the amount that is being set aside in your capital account.  Please note that this is an equity account, not a cash account.  It represents your ownership interest, or equity, in the Cooperative.
