We also understand their attention spans run short, so here are a few creative ways to get them involved. Depending on the age of your child, consider designating an “electronics deputy.” The deputy should be responsible for pointing out electronics in your home that are not in use and keeping appliances safe from liquids.

ACE Power has received several calls from concerned members that claim to have received a phone call from a scam artist claiming to be an agent of ACE Power. The most recent scam involves the scam artist, who represents him/herself as an agent of ACE Power, calling members to let them know that they owe ACE varying amounts of money in order to prevent the disconnection of electric service.  The recommended payment method is either a debit card or a prepaid debit card.  In all of the reported instances, the phone number that appears on caller id is from either California or Utah.  However, it is quite possible that the scam artist is not even located in [...]

The original Board of Directors in 1934 expected the “Corinth Experiment” to work, and it definitely has been a tremendous success. There are now approximately 1,000 Rural Electric Cooperatives serving over 80% of the landmass of the United States. Most of them do not have the low rates that we have, but [...]
