Members BewareScam Alert image

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.

MEMBERS ARE THE OWNERS OF our cooperative. More than any other trait, total membership and ownership sets cooperatives apart from other types of businesses. It is truly the cooperative difference, and a very powerful difference it is.

Electric co-ops serve more of South Carolina’s landmass than any other kind of utility. We at AEC want to be sure that we are adding to the current impact we are making; not only by providing electricity, but by also doing our part to assist our members and community through the programs we offer.

Co-op Connections

As a Touchstone Energy cooperative, we are able to offer our members discounts on products and services from participating local and national businesses. We’ve helped members save over $850,000 since 2009. The Co-op Connections program is absolutely free to you.


We annually give several college scholarships, including two Touchstone Energy awards and one Trustee award, at $1,000 each. These applications should be submitted online or postmarked by March 1.


Our annual half marathon, 5k and kid’s fun run are scheduled for April 30. All proceeds will go to benefit those in our community who need it most. Sign up to be a runner or volunteer today.

Annual Meeting

We look forward to seeing you Saturday, May 21, at the co-op’s headquarters in Aiken. Registration and voting will open at 7 a.m., and the business meeting starts at 12:30 p.m. We’ll have other meeting details in future issues of SC Living. Our cooperative is all about people. As a member-owned electric cooperative, we’re committed to powering our community and empowering others.
