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.

Our favorite words during extreme temperatures

By now we are all looking forward to the warmer temperatures and the changing landscapes of spring. But how do we make it through February?

With six weeks or more of cold temperatures, Aiken Electric Cooperative wants to remind you of our energy efficiency tips. You can find them on our website, www.aikenco-op.org, under “Home Energy Savings,” or give one of our member service representatives a call for some quick, easy measures you can take to keep your home a little warmer and costs down.

At our house, we change out our A/C filter monthly. Just a quick change with the least expensive filter will help with circulation and keep your system from overworking during cold nights. We also try to keep our house temperature at 68 degrees in the winter.

When the moderate weather returns, we have two exciting Aiken Electric events in April and May. Our fourth annual RUN UNITED in historic downtown Aiken is expanding to include a half marathon. Whether you are a runner or a spectator, this event promises to be fun for all ages. Also, mark your calendars for our 2015 Annual Meeting May 16. We’re looking forward to seeing you this spring!
