We are an electric cooperative - a community-focused organization led by our members.
Southwest Electric Cooperative was founded in 1939 by local people who understood the needs of our rural communities. Today, we work to efficiently deliver affordable, reliable, and safe energy to parts of eleven counties in southwest Missouri totaling more than 41,000 services. We continue to be led by our members as we belong to the communities we serve. A nine-member Board of Directors, elected by our members every year at our annual meeting, serve as the foundation of local control.
