  • Your New Meter

    Your New Meter

    Inland Power & Light recently installed new meters that work to lower operating costs, improve power restoration, improve reliability and improve accuracy.

These funds provided by our members are an important source of financing. They help pay for equipment and system maintenance and upgrades to provide you with safe, reliable and quality service you expect. By using these funds, we can avoid borrowing from other lenders.

Over the past 12 years, Inland has returned $16 million in capital credits to our members while maintaining some of the lowest rates in the country, as well as high service levels. Being a good financial steward of our members’ money is a top priority for the cooperative.

Last year, Inland issued $1.5 million in capital credit patronage checks. There were 23,866 checks issued and some of these checks were returned to the co-op marked “address unknown.” Perhaps you or someone you know is one of these members. To find out, please see the attachment below.

Early Capital Credit Retirement Program

Starting in 2017, Inland Power introduced a new discounted early capital credits retirement program. Each year, in early September, Inland Power will send members a statement for capital credits members contributed during the year. Members who had active accounts in that calendar year will now have the option to receive their capital credits early.

What are the next steps?

If you would like to receive your capital credits early.

To opt-in and receive the current discounted value of the capital credits you contributed to Inland the previous year, please fill out the bottom portion of your annual allocation statement and return it to Inland Power by November 1. You will receive a bill credit on your next billing statement. By accepting your capital credits early the remainder will be permanently invested by you in your cooperative.

If you do not want to receive your capital credits early.

If you do not want to receive the current value of the capital credits your contributed the previous year, do nothing. The capital credits will remain invested in Inland Power and will be fully returned to you when the board evaluates the financial condition of the cooperative to determine if Inland Power can refund capital credits in the future.

If you have additional questions about Inland Power's new discounted early capital credit retirement program, please contact us at (509) 789-4277.
