If you are having a hardship because of the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID 19), Arab Electric Cooperative management has received authority from the board of trustees to work with you.

AEC bills won’t go away, but if you have such a hardship because of the pandemic, you could qualify for a delay and possible no-interest loan on your bill.

The board authorized the move at its regular meeting Monday night.

For more information and to see if you qualify, contact AEC: 256-586-3196.

Additionally, AEC has closed its lobby and is working to limit exposure of COVID 19 to its members and employees.

AEC is asking that all business be done by phone, email or on-line.

Those contacts are:
