The WRVEC bylaws are set by the members and govern the ways in which our cooperative operates. Each year, we gather as one membership body for the Annual Meeting of Members to make important decisions that impact our cooperative’s future.
The value of every dollar that comes into the cooperative is significant as it allows us to provide service to our members. The expenses we pay with each dollar covers purchased power, operations and maintenance, administrative and general expenses, depreciation, interest, customer service, taxes, and the operating margins that may remain.
At the end of each year, after all of the cooperative’s bills have been paid and all expenses considered, the amount of money that is left over is called a margin. Margins provide equity for the cooperative and are allocated to the members in proportion to their purchases of electricity during the year. Capital credits are your share of the margin. Capital credits are allocated annually to each member and are retired in accord with the cooperative’s bylaws.
WRVEC offers a monthly newsletter, Current Times, to keep all members in our service area up to date with their electric cooperative. The Current Times provides an excellent means for communication between the cooperative and its members on all topics ranging from green energy such as solar power, to energy saving tips and incentives, to the basic business and financial aspects of the co-op.
