Flint Energies Plans Capital Credits for September

Flint Energies’ Board of Directors has authorized the distribution of $2.38 million in capital credits to members of the Cooperative who purchased power from Flint in 1983 and/or 1984, according to Chief Executive Officer Bob Ray. The distribution will completely refund the 1983 capital credits and will refund a portion of 1984.

“Roughly 12,900 currently active members will receive a bill credit on their primary electric account in September for the amount of their capital credit refund,” said Ray. “This tradition continues our effort to look after our members’ best interests.”

By paying capital credits refunds in September, Flint hopes to help offset the higher light bills that many members see at this time of year.  Around Sept. 15, about 17,700 checks will be mailed to those who were members of Flint in 1983 or 1984, but no longer get their electric service from the cooperative.

What are capital credits and how are they paid?

Downtown Fort Valley Welcomes New Students

 

What happens when you combine Downtown Fort Valley USA with thousands of Fort Valley State University students? F.L.Y. Friday, that's what!

Fort Valley Loves You-nity Friday is the brain child of the FVSU Student Government Association.  According to current SGA president Dominique Nichols, the organization under the advisement of the Office of Student Affairs wanted to plan an event in conjunction with the City that would exemplify FVSU President Larry Rivers' philosphy of "Communiversity." 

So, at 6:00pm on Friday evening, August 19th, Main Street will be closed to vehicle traffic and it is anticipated that at least 1,000 FVSU students will be embraced by the business and community as they come back to school, some experiencing Fort Valley for the first time as Freshmen.
