Capital Credit Information

Capital Credits

As an electric cooperative, Sangre de Cristo Electric Assn., Inc. belongs to the people we serve, our consumers. Any profits generated here get shared back with our consumers over time. In December 2018, SDCEA refunded to consumers who received service in 1995, 2000 and 2001. At that time, SDCEA posted money to 3,767 accounts and sent 6,059 checks for a total refund of $456,448.

Some of the checks that were mailed were returned because we did not have a valid address for the consumer, or the consumer did not have an active account. Some of the checks were simply not cashed.

A list of consumers whose refunds were returned will appear in the September 2019 issue of Colorado Country Life. A link to that publication will be posted to that information when available. If you see a name on the list that you know you can help them receive their check by having them contact us. If there is a person on the list that is deceased, please have their heirs contact us. Our contact information is info@myelectric.coop or 719-395-2412 or toll-free 844-395-2412.

Your help in finding SDCEA consumers is greatly appreciated. Please keep in mind we must have contact with the consumer on the list or their heir(s), to make any changes to the mailing address.

What happens if the refund checks are never cashed or we can’t contact the consumer after 3 years? Any unclaimed refund money is used for charitable purposes.
