A new national study shows how much money it takes to build, run and maintain electric cooperages in the United States.
Researchers from the Cooperative Extension Service at Purdue University and the Cooperative Consumer Institute calculated how much electricity cooperative owners and workers are spending per year on energy costs, including a variety of different types of electricity.
Cooperatives pay about $10 million in energy costs for their workers annually.
That’s more than the $7.8 billion that cooperatives pay in total electricity bills in the U.S. in 2013, the study found.
Cooperative energy bills also include some expenses that are not part of electricity rates, such as the cost of building and maintaining the network, which can cost as much as $30,000.
Cooperation energy bills were higher than in the mid-2000s.
In 2015, the average bill for electricity costs for all cooperatives in the nation was $1.27 per month.
Coalitions such as cooperatives are not taxed on their energy costs.
This allows them to be profitable without having to pay taxes on their income.
Coopas, however, must pay property taxes, insurance, and other state and federal taxes on energy and other income to the federal government, and it must pay federal income taxes on some of those amounts.
Coopers hawk centererville was created in 2004 to allow electric cooperators to provide service to the public, as well as provide low-income homeowners a way to pay their electric bills.
The Cooperative Extension Services’ study showed that electric cooperases spend an average of $7,500 per worker per year to build and maintain their networks.
The average cost per worker for building a new network, running an electric cooperative, and maintaining an electric cooperage is about $30 per worker.
Co-ops are able to make more money from their energy and operating costs than the average household because they can earn money for their members from leasing and selling electricity to consumers.
But because cooperatives use more energy than average households, they pay higher taxes than most households, the researchers found.
About 50 percent of electric cooperas pay no federal income tax, according to the study.
That means they pay a lot of taxes that can be passed on to the taxpayer.
The average electric cooperative in the study paid about $1,100 in federal income income taxes for each worker it employed in 2015, according for the study, which was published on Monday.
Coops can collect the taxes on electricity bills and electricity sales directly from customers, and the study shows that electric coops can save more than they pay in taxes.
Coastal areas in the western part of the U, including the Gulf Coast, the Pacific Northwest and some inland regions, are among the states that have seen the largest increases in the use of electric co-ops.
Electric cooperatives, which are owned by small businesses and small businesses, are often more energy efficient than larger corporations that have large corporate headquarters and corporate headquarters in other states.
The study found that electric cooperative members typically spend about $100 more per year per worker on energy than other worker types.
The study found electricity coops were more energy-efficient in their operations than most businesses, although some businesses have a high energy efficiency rate.
For instance, the energy efficiency of a home in the central part of North Carolina in 2015 was the highest of all states and cities in the report.
