AEC System Upgrades

Scam AlertAs part of our ongoing advancements and enhancements to our service system, Aiken Electric Cooperative has been upgrading electric power meters. We will continue with this upgrade initiative for the next few years in an effort to improve our outage monitoring system and increase our responsiveness out in the field. All metering personnel will have Aiken Electric Cooperative uniforms and be in a truck clearly marked with our logo. They will also have official Aiken Electric Cooperative wallet identification. Thank you for your patience as we continue our efforts to better serve you, our members.


Members BewareScam Alert

Members continue to report being targeted with a telephone scam involving buying a MoneyPack. An individual pretending to be from Aiken Electric calls and tells the member that their service will be disconnected unless payment is made right away. Even when the member says they paid, the scammer reports that the co-op billing system did not process their payment and they need to make another payment by purchasing a Money Pack, call the number provided by the scammer and give the receipt and access numbers. The scammer then has access to the Money Pack account and takes the money.

Aiken Electric NEVER asks members to buy a Money Pack and members ALWAYS receive several notices prior to disconnection. If you are contacted with a threat of disconnection and suspect it may be a scam, call the co- op to verify and, also, report any suspicious activity to local law enforcement. Thank you.


Everyone’s a winner

THERE ARE MANY BENEFITS THAT come with being a member of an electric cooperative, some of which are the very principles we were founded upon. These notions lead electric cooperatives like Aiken Electric Cooperative to do business in a better way every single day.

Voluntary and Open Membership
Co-ops are open to anyone who is able to use its services, which means any person who moves onto Aiken Electric Cooperative lines is allowed membership. Annual meetings serve as a way for members to get to know the people who run their co-op, and it’s where members are updated on business matters. Our meeting is just a few weeks away. We hope to see you there. Be sure to bring your special cover from this month’s magazine with you. Who knows, you may even be the winner of our grand prize!

Members’ Economic Participation
Our cooperative is owned by you, our members, which means we don’t create profits for shareholders. Any excess revenue is given back to membership in the form of capital credits. We’re proud to support our communities by putting money back into the local economy—and into the pockets of those we serve.

Autonomy and Independence/Democratic Member Control
While we do work with our co-op neighbors, we still remain independent. AEC members are the sole governors of AEC. The Board of Trustees you’ve elected works on each of their district’s behalf to approve policies and resolutions that work in everyone’s favor.

Education, Training, and Information
Cooperatives have a charge to keep their members informed—not just about cooperative business, but also about topics like energy efficiency, safety, and community contribution. SC Living is one of the ways we keep you up-to-date on relevant news. We have also began doing so through our new member newsletter, “AEC Connection.” Thank you to all that have signed up to receive it and Congratulations to our three winners of a $300 electric credit, Russell Gibson of Aiken, David Hazell of Aiken and Billy Jeffcoat of Pelion.

Cooperation Among Cooperatives
Even though co-ops are independent entities, they still rely on one another to share resources, information, and, in some cases, manpower. Electric co-ops have long relied on one another to get power restored more quickly after severe weather emergencies. When AEC needs extra hands after an ice storm or tornado, co-ops from neighboring towns and states come to assist.

Concern for Community
AEC undertakes a variety of projects, from our Annual Safety Magic Show to Touchstone Energy Scholarships. While our first priority is delivering safe, affordable, reliable electricity to those we serve, we also feel strongly about supporting and contributing to the development of our communities.

With Aiken Electric Cooperative, everyone’s a winner, and we look forward to adding to the list of ways we serve you.
