Southwest Electric Cooperative Inc
"Owned By Those We Serve."
Southwest Electric Cooperative is a community-focused organization led by our members.
Founded in 1939 by local people who understood the needs of our rural communities. Today, we work to distribute affordable, reliable, and safe energy to parts of eleven counties in southwest Missouri totaling about 41,500 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.
