Welcome to the new face of AEC

Those in attendance at the Co-op’s 74th annual meeting on September 27th were the first to see our new logo—the visual aspect of AEC’s brand identity. The video above explains how we developed a logo that pays tribute to our past while moving us forward. And we have a new partner in our efforts to do that: Touchstone Energy, which is kind of like a “co-op for co-ops.” With AEC’s 75th anniversary just around the corner in 2015, there are many exciting things in store for our members. But no matter how things change, you can count on your Co-op to be there for you—in all the ways that matter most.
