September 2016


I would like to thank each of our members who participated in the 2016 Annual Meeting in Altus. Once again it was a joy to meet with many of our longtime members and to also meet many of our new members. There are many great people in southwest Oklahoma and north Texas, and SWRE members are the “cream of the crop”. A special thanks to the folks in Altus who made our meeting successful. The staff and administration at Western Oklahoma State College were gracious in their hospitality. Our area is fortunate to have such beautiful facilities in the Altus community. We had numerous special guests at this year’s annual meeting. I would like to thank Hillary Barrow, administrative services assistant at the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives, for her attendance. Members of the Statewide’s staff are essential to the continued success of SWRE and our sister co-ops in Oklahoma. Our statewide associations in both Oklahoma and Texas play a major role in providing support to all of the member cooperatives. Thanks also to Jane Lafferty, Western Farmers Electric Cooperative Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer who attended on behalf of WFEC. Western Farmers supplies the wholesale power for our cooperative, and their collaborative effort enables SWRE to provide the best possible price to our members. The staff of WFEC provides essential support with marketing, economic development, and the Touchstone


Annual meeting was great success Energy Program.


by Mike R. Hagy I would also like to thank the SWRE Board of


Trustees. Their service to our cooperative requires many, many hours throughout the year. In addition to all of the board meetings and regional/national meetings, each of the directors has taken time from their personal schedules to attend training meetings designed by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association.


I am proud to say that all of SWRE’s trustees will have earned the Credentialed Cooperative Director’s Certificate and many of the directors have gone on to complete the Board Leadership Training Programs as well. These are intense courses with written examinations designed to provide directors with essential knowledge to govern our cooperative.


Last... I would be amiss if I did not thank my staff and employees. The linemen and office staff are the people who make our organization run on a day-to-day basis. I am proud of them all. Their willingness to pitch in and get the job done, whether it is in a storm or just day-to-day operations, is a tremendous asset to this cooperative.


As you can see, Southwest Rural Electric is truly a cooperative when you put all of these pieces together. It takes all of these components for our vision of “Safety, Service, and Satisfaction – One member at a time!” to be a reality. Thanks for another successful year!


Community Solar construction underway


Co-op members may have noticed that site preparations have begun at location of SWRE’s new community solar fields.


The construction will be done in


partnership with Western Farmers Electric Cooperative, SWRE’s power provider, and will be built in stages over the next two or three months.


The fields are one mile south of Frederick at Highway 183 and Airport Road, and south of Vernon on Center Drive adjacent to Madison Crossing Apartments.


Interested SWRE members may buy shares of output from the solar fields to reap utility benefits over the coming 25 years. Each share costs $350 and is roughly equal to output from one solar panel. Visit www.swre.com or call SWRE for more information.
