AEC System Upgrades

Scam AlertAs part of our ongoing advancements and enhancements to our service system, Aiken Electric Cooperative has been upgrading electric power meters. We will continue with this upgrade initiative for the next few years in an effort to improve our outage monitoring system and increase our responsiveness out in the field. All metering personnel will have Aiken Electric Cooperative uniforms and be in a truck clearly marked with our logo. They will also have official Aiken Electric Cooperative wallet identification. Thank you for your patience as we continue our efforts to better serve you, our members.

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.

Bright plans for the spring

THINGS ARE LOOKING BRIGHT AT Aiken Electric Cooperative with an exciting spring in store. We’ll kick things off with our annual RUN UNITED event April 30. If you have not already, sign up at aikenco-op.org. Proceeds from the race will benefit United Way of Aiken County.

AEC’s Annual Meeting is set for May 21. Our staff has been working for months to plan this fun day in the sun. We are always excited to have you here at the co-op and hope that you enjoy this year’s event.

With spring, I’m also reminded of the programs we offer that help our environment. AEC Recycles has been in place for several years. Annually we collect tons of paper, cardboard, plastic bottles and aluminum cans. Just as we have at each Annual Meeting, there will be an area to drop off your old computer parts for recycling. Also, be sure to use the recycling bins located throughout the event for your trash.

We are also pleased to have two schools in our service territory as part of the “Solar Schools” program. New Ellenton and Merriwether Middle Schools have had solar panels installed through the cooperative, which allows their sixth-grade students to learn and assess the effects of renewable energy.

As a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, Aiken Electric places a premium on positive values such as commitment to the community and innovation. We’ll continue to act as good stewards of the environment, and doing all that we can to ensure that each of our futures are a little brighter.
