Capital Credit Retirements: A letter was inadvertently sent to all members in their bills stating they will receive a check for your capital credit retirement. This letter was meant for ONLY inactive members. All others who are eligible will receive a credit on their electric bill. Sorry for the confusion. 

Stray Voltage

Stray voltage is primarily a concern in the dairy industry; however, it can affect other livestock.   Stray voltage, or neutral to earth voltage, produces a tiny electrical shock that is felt by animals through stanchions, watering cups or other farm equipment.  Even at voltages far below those a human can feel, animals may be receiving shocks that affect their behavior, milk production and overall health.

If you think that you may have a stray voltage problem, call a qualified electrician to review your farm wiring, call your milk dealer or representative to check your equipment, and notify us. Riverland Energy Cooperative stands ready to investigate that possibility. We have the equipment and trained personnel to offer assistance and advice pertaining to stray voltage.
