News Southwest Rural Electric Association September 2016 Volume 63


SWRE members from across the co-op’s two-state service territory met in Altus on August 11 for the organization’s 2016 annual meeting. The event was held at Western Oklahoma State College. Throughout that day many SWRE members visited exhibits where they received information about SWRE’s new community solar program, geothermal heating and cooling, the SWRE mobile app, whole house generators and Western Farmers Electric Cooperative.


The Choctaw Line Bluegrass Band from the Oklahoma City area provided great musical entertainment prior to the business meeting. The band’s four members enterained with a variety of musical instruments and great vocals. Prior to the brief business meeting, board President Dan White discussed the co-op qualities that make SWRE different from traditional profit-driven utility companies.


SWRE CEO Mike Hagy explained that the co-op wants to be the energy source for its members, with the ability to provide whatever kind of energy they seek. That is why the co-op has instituted programs such as community solar, geothermal, and generators. As technology and member needs evolve, the co-op will stand ready to serve those needs.


Emma McSpadden, a senior at Vernon High School, and Kendall Roberts, a senior at Tipton High School, shared their experiences as 2016 Youth Tour winners. Both spoke eloquently about their experiences and thanked SWRE members for providing them with the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C.


Co-op attorney Loyd Benson led a brief business


meeting. A quorum was present for conducting business. A total of 340 voting memberships were represented at the meeting.


High point of the annual event, as always, was a prize drawing. One hundred three prizes were given away, including energy certificates, business gift cards, electric appliances, and numerous items that were donated by SWRE’s vendor companies. The grand prize was a 60-inch Samsung 4K ultra high definition television. It was won by Nelson Davis, an SWRE member who lives near Roosevelt.
