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.


Teaching children all about the power of electricity

ELECTRICITY IS A DYNAMIC power source. We live our lives surrounded by it, but sometimes we forget just how dangerous electricity can be. Many home electrical fires, injuries and electrocutions can be prevented when we understand and practice electrical safety. This is especially true for our youngest co-op members.

Throughout the year, Aiken Electric offers many value-added benefits to help teach youngsters about electricity. Our Safety Magic Show each March enlightens area first-graders to the dangers of electricity through humor and slight of hand.

Next month, we will also be assisting our educators. In an effort to help K-8 teachers instruct students about energy and the environment, Aiken Electric Cooperative is hosting a free half-day workshop. It’s part of enLIGHTenSC, a K-12 energy and economic education program developed by S.C. electric co-ops and aligned to state education standards. Workshop participants receive four credit renewal points and access to grade-appropriate lessons and activities. The workshop will be held September 13 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the co-op, 2790 Wagener Road, Aiken and lunch will be provided. Register at enLIGHTenSC.org. A $25 refundable deposit is required.

Your cooperative is dedicated to assisting teachers and students to better our communities. We’re looking out for you.

Help Us Tell the EPA!

Due to the Environmental Protection Agency proposed restrictions on coal-fired generation plants, your electric bill could increase by over 50%. We invest in nuclear and renewable forms of energy but coal is key to keeping electric bills affordable.
