Check your August edition of “Carolina Country” to see if you have a check owed to you.

Because Wake Electric is a not-for-profit utility, when we make money beyond our operating costs, we return that money to our members in the form of “capital credits.” Because the formula for distribution is based on prior years of operation, often customers who are entitled to capital credits have moved and it is difficult to locate them.

If the U.S. Postal Service returns a capital check to us, we make every effort to locate the person entitled to the check. Go to the link below to see a list of people who have had their checks returned to us because their address is not correct. If you see your name or the names of family, friends or associates, please have them contact Wake Electric at 1-800-474-6300, 919-863-6300, or email us at
