Holy Cross to return $2.8 million to customers

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – Holy Cross Energy’s Board of Directors recently declared a “Member Equity” distribution refund of nearly $2.8 million to members who purchased electricity from Holy Cross Energy in 1996. More than 25,800 current and former members should receive their checks by mid-December. Refunds less than $10 will be posted as a credit on upcoming electric bills.

As a not-for-profit entity, Holy Cross’s mission includes providing electric service at a reasonable cost and returning profits or “margins” remaining after operation expenses back to its members.

“Member Equity is a cornerstone of the cooperative way of doing business,” said Michael Glass, Board Treasurer of Holy Cross Energy. “The Board of Directors understands the hardships our members are facing in these difficult economic times and is pleased to be able to again return margins despite the many challenges currently confronting our industry.”

Holy Cross Energy is a rural electric distribution cooperative organized in 1939, providing electric energy to more than 54,500 services in Eagle, Garfield, Pitkin, and portions of Gunnison and Mesa counties.
