We’re celebrating National Lineman Appreciation Day here at the Co-op. We set aside this time each year to recognize the contributions of our line crews and honor them for their outstanding service to our members. They perform potentially dangerous work with true professionalism in the most extreme conditions imaginable. No one works harder to keep the lights on than the linemen of AEC! We are so proud of these guys, and we know our members join us in thanking them for a job well done.

Member Alert: NexGen is a contracted company that will be assisting in a meter audit for AEC. They are currently working in the service area. Each vehicle will be clearly marked with an “AEC Contractor” sticker and all workers will have photo ID badges. Any member with questions or concerns may contact the AEC at ext. 1110. Thank you.

AEC Members may sign up for ACH payment and E-Bill (paperless) options and receive a $1.00 credit each month on their electric bill. To participate in this promotion, complete this form and return to AEC. It’s that simple.

Take charge of your energy use with Co-op FlexPay

A great new payment option that offers the ability to obtain electric service from AEC without the need for a security deposit, you can think of it like a prepaid card for your cell phone service or like the dollar sign gas gauge fuel gauge on your vehicle. After an initial $50 minimum payment to open your Co-op FlexPay account, you can monitor your daily kWh consumption online or by phone and add funds as needed. Both current and new members can avoid having to pay late charges or reconnection fees by maintaining a positive balance. Learn more about Co-op FlexPay and then come see the friendly folks in AEC’s Service department to sign up.


AEC is committed to the safety of our members. Con artists don’t share our concerns. Currently, a telephone scam is circulating in the AEC service area. Don’t get Scammed! Never give personal information out over the phone or send money to someone you don’t know.  If you receive a phone scam, call you local law enforcement immediately. AEC does not make phone calls to solicit payment of electric bills. We do not threaten disconnection of electric service over the phone.  Protect yourself and help us spread this message by telling your friends and family.

Through the end of August 2016, AEC is waiving the $50 fee for an in-home evaluation of your home’s energy efficiency. At absolutely no cost to you, our certified energy inspector will come to your home at your convenience and assess the condition of all the various components that affect efficiency—from your HVAC system to insulation to windows and doors. He’ll assign your home a numeric rating (an “eScore”) that you’ll be encouraged to raise through projects you may wish to undertake over time. Each improvement (which you’ll tackle in partnership with a member of our Quality Contractor Network) comes with financial incentives of varying amounts, but they all help offset project costs. Your eScore evaluation is the first step in a process that will result in lower energy costs, greater comfort, and an increase in the value of your home. Call the Co-op’s Member Services Department at ext. 1880 and we’ll help you get started.
