Discover the Value of Membership

Capital CreditsLittle River is able to return capital credits to its members after the board has determined the cooperative’s finances are sound. Capital credit funds are derived from margins, money your cooperative has left over at the end of the year after the co-op has received all revenue and paid expenses.

Little River Electric is holding unclaimed capital credits for members or former members. If you received service from LRECI and your name is on the searchable database, please let us know.
