What does ‘membership’ mean?
The Co-operative is a movement started and run by members. There are a number of Co-operatives across the country. Co-operative Energy is run by Midcounties Co-operative. Members of Midcounties are the legal owners of Midcounties; they appoint the board of directors and they decide how profits are used.
One of the main benefits of being a member of Midcounties Co-operative is that you will receive points for every £2 you spend in any of our businesses including Energy. We also distribute a share of our profits to all members once a year. The proportion of the dividend or 'Share of the profits' you receive depends on the points you have accumulated.
