Power of Community - Pedernales Electric Cooperative

Capital credits

As a member of our cooperative, you're also an owner — so rather than earning profits from your monthly payments, PEC invests some of that money toward strengthening the operations that power your life and assigns the rest to you. We call these funds capital credits.

Each year, the PEC Board of Directors determines what portion of capital credits can be retired, or returned to our membership. Capital credits, which are based on the dollar amount of electricity each member purchases, can vary from member to member and even from year to year.

2017 capital credits information

In October 2017, the PEC Board of Directors approved capital credits distributions totaling $8.6 million to current and former PEC members, raising our lifetime distribution to more than $107 million since 2007. The 2016 allocations on active accounts were posted on members' bills in July.
