Welcome to Anza Electric Cooperative


A record number of Director Candidate petitions were received by the May 24th Candidate Petition deadline.

Anza Electric Cooperative, Inc. is governed by seven directors representing the three districts of the cooperative’s service area.  Four seats on the Anza Electric Cooperative board of directors will be open for election this July. Districts I & II will have one, three-year seat available each. District III will have two seats available with one seat for a three year term and one seat for a one year term due to a recently vacated position.
AEC’s democratically elected Board of Directors is responsible for setting policy for the only electric distribution cooperative in Southern California. Directors are committed to policies that result in a safe and reliable electric system, fair rates, financial responsibility and superior member service.

Each year, eligible AEC members can seek nomination for director positions up for election through the petition process established by AEC’s Bylaws requiring thirty valid member signatures.

This year ten valid petitions were accepted and the following individuals will be listed on the July ballot for the four seats.

Annual Meeting information, election material, and the Annual Report will be part of the July Currents magazine arriving in mail boxes the first week of July.

An independent election processor will handle the election and announce the election results at the Annual Membership Meeting on Saturday, July 22nd at Hamilton High School. 

Registration and breakfast start at 7:30 a.m. Polls close at 9:00 a.m. when meeting is called to order.

Occasionally, it’s necessary to perform maintenance on our equipment and that sometimes involves temporarily disconnecting our members’ power.
The members most affected are those who are on life support. We maintain a list of those who depend on any type of life support system and we use this list to notify these individuals of a planned outage.
If you or someone in your household is on life support please be sure and let us know.
Identification tags are also placed on meters to alert crews of the existence of a life support system.
With the member’s permission, copies of AEC’s life support list are forwarded to the local fire stations so they also may be aware of a member’s special needs.


Because power outages can’t always be controlled and the duration of the outage may be extensive, it’s important to maintain a sufficient backup supply of oxygen or other medical equipment you may need during this time.


High-speed internet is quickly becoming a reality for the area.

ConnectAnza is busy installing fiber to more areas.

You may see our contractors in your area hanging the fiber cable on our utility poles.  If they need access to the poles on your property, they will leave you a white Anza Electric card.

Please contact Anza Electric ASAP at 951-763-4333 when you receive a card to schedule access for the contractors.

We look forward to getting service to you VERY SOON!
