Capital Credits

When you moved into Delaware Electric Cooperative's service territory, you automatically became a member of the Cooperative. A cooperative is owned by those who use its product or service. Because electricity is delivered to your home by Delaware Electric Cooperative, you are a member-owner. Like any business that has a good year, Delaware Electric Cooperative earns margins or profits. However, that is where the similarity with other business models ends. While profits or margins for other companies go primarily to stockholders who may or may not be customers, Delaware Electric Cooperative margins belong exclusively to you our member-owners. All returns of margins, commonly called Capital Credits, are approved by the Cooperativeís member-elected Board of Directors, ensuring local accountability for the process. Capital Credits are unique to the cooperative business model and an added value for our customers. We're pleased to provide you with quality electric service and a share of the profits.

Unclaimed Capital Credit Refunds

Capital Credits refund checks are mailed to former members at their last address on file with Delaware Electric Cooperative. And with every mailing, the U.S. Postal Service returns some of those checks as undeliverable. The following is a list of the names we have lost touch with and may be entitled to receive capital credits. Names on this list can claim their capital-credit refund by contacting our office at (302) 349-9090 in Sussex County or (302) 398-9090 in Kent County or by contacting us by email.
