Powering our communities
Aiken Electric Cooperative exists to power communities and empower you, our members, to improve your quality of life. The cooperative business model offers the perfect tool for tackling tasks too big for one person to handle alone. But we need a common purpose to effectively wield the power of cooperation.
A few of you may remember our beginnings from your younger days—you know full well the power of neighbors uniting behind a common purpose. But the vast majority doesn’t remember when this area rolled up its sleeves and worked together to get the lights on. Back when life was hard—before cooperation changed the landscape of the communities we serve.
We invite you to join us as we take on our next challenge, RUN UNITED. This 5K, 10K and Kid’s Fun Run takes place in historic downtown Aiken Saturday, April 20. Walk or run the route and you’ll be placing an investment in your health and an investment in our community. Your tax deductible check for the $25 registration fee goes to the United Way of Aiken County. You’ll be supporting the many United Way agencies that exist to help our neighbors and children who may have fallen on hard times.
Aiken Electric Cooperative is more than a power provider. We’re proof that when folks unite with a single focus, we can bring dreams to reality. Our purpose—powering this community and empowering you, our members—can make life better.
We exist today because 75 years ago, co-op members like yourself believed they could turn darkness into daylight. Here’s to the next chapter of working cooperatively with you!
