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.

Above and beyond

Electric co-op membership offers value far beyond affordable, reliable electricity.

HERE AT AIKEN ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE, we work hard to deliver safe, affordable, and reliable electricity to our 46,000 members every day. But we don’t stop there. Because we’re a cooperative, we strive to do much more, to find ways of providing real value to you and the communities we serve.

So what exactly does real value mean? Well, in some ways it’s basic, like connecting with a real, local person when you call our office, rather than just a recording. It could be finding a copy of South Carolina Living in your mailbox every month, which keeps you informed about co-op business and goings-on in the Palmetto State. Or it’s getting the lights back on quickly after unexpected damage to our system. You’ll see just how dedicated our linemen are when you discover the safety precautions necessary to “keep the lights on” everyday (See March edition of Living in South Carolina magazine, page5).

We invite you to visit aikenco-op.org to explore the many programs and services you have access to just by being a member of Aiken Electric Cooperative. You’ll see there are advantages to your membership. And don’t forget to put Saturday, May 16 on your calendars. We are looking forward to meeting you at our 2015 Annual Meeting.
