News Release: Tri-State Announces Return Of Capital To Members


Tri-State announced that it has completed payment of $30 million in patronage capital refunds to its member distribution cooperatives and public power districts, and also allocated an additional $45 million in patronage capital (to be refunded over time) to its members. The refunds and allocations are for 2019. Approximately $100 million in patronage capital refunds have been paid out to our members in the past four years.

The allocation and return of patronage capital to members is one of the hallmarks of the cooperative business model, and is one of the many benefits of being a member of Tri-State, which is a not-for-profit cooperative.
