Does Chugach Electric owe you money?

Chugach Electric Association in Anchorage is seeking people to whom it owes money.

As a member-owned cooperative, the utility earns margins — or profits — that belong to member-owners. Margins are credited to members’ accounts and used by the utility to help meet capital needs. Following a vote of the board of directors, margins are returned to members after a time.

In 2004 and 2005, Chugach Electric mailed checks or notices or credited accounts of more than 33,000 members for margins earned in 1986. Thousands of checks were not cashed or were returned as undeliverable.

Former members or estates may still claim their capital credits until Dec. 31, by calling (907) 563-7366. A list of members who are still due credits may be viewed online at www.chugachelectric.com.
