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.

Challenge, Progress, Growth

‘IF THERE IS A SINGLE WORD TO describe the method of operations of your cooperative, we believe that word would be “progressive.” ’ This is how our AEC’s past Manager, R. E. Thomson began his update in an Annual Report from 1965. Fifty years later, and guess what, we are still constantly seeking new equipment, methods and procedures to ensure that you receive better service at affordable costs as the years go by.

In July, I, along with other co-op leaders, was invited to join White House officials in Washington, D.C. to discuss recent progress and potential collaboration on efficiency and renewable energy development. We were able to share experiences and opportunities we have had with the Help My House program, have a productive conversation about how we can build the value of current federal programs and find more opportunities to bring the benefits of energy efficiency technologies to our members. As part owner, we promise to continue to run the cooperative with your best interests in mind. However, in order to stay current on your views and needs, we need your feedback. In the center of this magazine you will find our annual survey. We hope that you will take the time to complete and return it to us or go to the link listed to do so online. Who knows, your name may be one of the names chosen to receive a $500 electric credit.

By letting us know what you think, we will be able to continue progressing and providing real value to you and the communities we serve. Remember, we are always looking out for you.
