Because Four County EMC is a cooperative, owned by its members, it does not technically earn profits. Instead, any revenues over and above the cost of doing business are considered 'margins."
These margins represent an interest-free loan operating capital by the membership to the Cooperative. The capital allows Four County EMC to finance operations and to a certain extent construction, with the intent that this capital will be repaid in later years.
