Our favorite words during extreme temperatures
looking forward to
the warmer temperatures and the
changing landscapes of spring. But
how do we make it through
With six weeks or more
of cold temperatures, Aiken
Electric Cooperative wants
to remind you of our energy
efficiency tips. You can find
them on our website,
aikenco-op.org, under “Home Energy
Savings,” or give one of our member
service representatives a call for some
quick, easy measures to keep your
home a little warmer and costs down.
At our house, we change out
our A/C filter monthly. Just a quick
change with the least expensive filter
will help with circulation and keep
your system from overworking during
cold nights. We also try to keep our
house temperature at 68 degrees in
the winter.
When the moderate weather
returns, we have two exciting Aiken
Electric events in April and May.
Our fourth annual RUN UNITED in
historic downtown Aiken is expanding
to include a half marathon. Whether
you are a runner or a spectator, this
event promises to be fun for all ages.
Also, mark your calendars for our
2015 Annual Meeting May 16. We’re
looking forward to seeing you this spring!

Green Power touches everyone with renewable and
sustainable energy for this and future generations.
By using solar, methane gas captured at landfills and wind, Aiken Electric
Cooperative and Santee Cooper—
along with members who care about
their community—are helping our
environment like never before.
Green Power costs less than a dime a day!
Each 100 kilowatt-hour block is available for only $3 added to your monthly
electric bill. The money collected goes to develop renewable energy resources,
right here in South Carolina. This helps us to stay independent from foreign
resources and also helps maintain our local environment by using clean,
renewable energy with no waste.
Join the Green Team and make a
commitment to our environment—
the cost is small but the
impact is large.
If you are not currently a
Green Power participant
and want to become one,

or call us at 1-800-922-1262
