Aiken Electric Cooperative celebrated 82 years during its first drive-thru annual meeting Saturday, August 8, 2020.

Two incumbent candidates for the Board of Trustees were re-elected during the Annual Meeting. Charles R. (Chuck) Sanders was re-elected in Trustee District No. 2 and Linda S. Bramlett in Trustee District No. 5. Nominated by petition, Vincent W. Furtick, Jr. was elected to represent Trustee District No. 7.

This year’s grand prize, a John Deere riding mower, was won by Ricky Lee Cook of Aiken, SC.

The 2020 Annual Business Meeting was streamed live on Facebook.

It’s another convenient way to report your outage with the cellular phone number associated with your account. Text OUT to our “Lights Out” number (877-264-5368) and verify your address and a crew will be dispatched. It’s that simple! You will receive an alert once your outage has been restored. Opt-in to use the system.
As 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.

Please keep these tips in mind when trying to determine if you are communicating with an Aiken Electric employee:

Things AEC employees do:

  • Travel in vehicles clearly marked with an AEC logo
  • Require employees to carry a co-op photo ID
  • AEC field employees wear issued uniforms (blue and tan)

Things AEC employees do not do:

  • Call and request account information or a full SSN
  • Conduct electric work inside your home (Except for H2O Select PLUS 2 members with water heater timers)
  • Require prepaid debit cards as the ONLY method of payment (AEC authorized payment options can be found at
  • Charge additional fees to process payments (We recommend members make payments with AEC authorized payment options)
  • Operate business outside of

Remember, there are legitimate third party processors who may assess a fee to make a payment and it could take up to five days. Be informed. If you feel like a scammer pretending to be an AEC employee has visited or contacted you, call the co-op to verify and, also, report any suspicious activity to local law enforcement.

Representatives of Aiken Electric Cooperative working in the field always travel in vehicles with an AEC logo, carry an employee ID and wear blue and tan uniforms, like, AEC Field Services Technician, Eric Savage, pictured on the left.

We (continue) to build future leaders

Just like many other businesses and community programs, the pandemic could have negatively affected our youth programs. Yet with creativity and persistence, we managed to provide our Youth Tour and Youth Summit students with a valuable leadership experience, and the opportunity to participate in our 2021 trips.

Instead of touring historic sites this summer, our delegates joined 70 other students from across the state for the Virtual Youth Experience in June. Participants had the opportunity to ask government, education, and health officials about the historic issues facing their generation by way of video conferencing. The students also had the opportunity to earn a $5,000 scholarship by creating a podcast detailing how the COVID-19 crisis has impacted their lives.

We also chose three outstanding students for our Trustee and Touchstone Energy scholarships, and as usual, we had numerous applicants. We offer three $1,000 scholarships each year, and students are able to apply online in November at

AEC knows our service territory is more than a collection of houses and businesses—we’re a community of people, and the strength of our future is in the hands of upcoming generations. Please know that your local cooperative cares and will continue to invest in the lives of each of the members we serve.
