We have received a report from a member that someone approached his elderly mother claiming the cooperative was about to cut right-of-way in the area. This person was very rude and exaggerated about what would be cut. The member was concerned that someone was trying to get his elderly mother out of her house.
Aiken Electric’s right-of-way contractor is Carolina Tree, their trucks prominently display the Carolina Tree logo and their employees carry identification, especially in cases where on-site access may be necessary.
AEC’s routine right-of-way maintenance is currently on-going in the Wagener-Salley area and in the College Acres, Aiken, area. Also, call the co-op at 803-649-6245 if you have any question about the identity of someone claiming to represent Aiken Electric Cooperative.
We encourage our followers to share this message with their friends to alert as many people as possible. Thank you.
Dear Aiken Electric Cooperative Member:
Climate change is one of the main issues co-ops are discussing with House and Senate leaders. This video raises a flag early in the climate debate, asking for consideration of the concerns of everyday people. Please sign up with NRECA and help us get this message out to our communities.

A time to be thankful
I’m thankful to be a part of Aiken Electric Cooperative. Our trustees and employees are some of the hardest workers I know. They are dedicated to our mission of providing affordable, reliable, safe electric power.
I’m thankful for my co-op because we care. From giving scholarships to young people and coordinating a school supply drive to reaching out to members with information that will help them save energy and money, we care about the people and the towns we serve. I’m thankful for Aiken Electric because it allows employees to live alongside those we serve. The beauty of a cooperative is that it’s locally owned and operated; there are no distant shareholders pulling the strings behind the scenes.
I’m thankful for Operation Round Up. Our Operation Round Up funds are continually funneled into our communities and helping our friends who have the greatest needs. Rounding up your bill to the nearest dollar equates to about $6 a year that is donated in our service territory. During this holiday season, all of us here at Aiken Electric Cooperative wish you the very best!
