Members Beware

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.

Investing in the future of co-ops

At Aiken Electric Cooperative, we know the importance of explaining the history of electric cooperatives and the values they represent to our youth—after all, they are our members-in-training. With programs in place like the Washington Youth Tour and the National Institute on Cooperative Education, we are able to do so in a way that teaches the role of electric cooperatives, while rewarding some of the top students in our service areas. We have also been able to reward by offering several scholarships each year to assist in easing the burden of college tuition, including two Touchstone Energy scholarships and a Trustee scholarship awarded to high-school seniors, and the WIRE scholarship, awarded to women who attend college years after high school graduation.

Over the past 15 years, our very own Board of Trustees has personally donated more than $15,000 to help 15 students toward furthering their educations. Congratulations to our 2015 scholarship recipients listed below. We will continue to support you, as you’ve always supported us. Aiken Electric Cooperative emphasizes the cooperative difference by providing real value for all of our members.
