SMECO is a customer-owned electric cooperative providing electricity to over 150,000 services in Charles County, St. Mary’s County, southern Prince George’s County, and all but the northeast portion of Calvert County.Co-ops are distinctly different from investor-owned utilities because co-ops are owned by their customers, and customer-members elect the men and women who serve on the Board of Directors.

Co-ops also issue capital credits to their customer-members.What are capital credits?They are the member’s share of the co-op’s margins, based on how much electricity the member purchased and the rate at which the account was billed.SMECO’s margins—revenue less expenses—are used as working capital for new construction and system improvements.When SMECO’s Board of Directors determines that a percentage of the capital credits can be distributed to members through a general refund, capital credits will be issued by check or credited to members’ electric bills.
