Southwest Rural Electric Association is headquartered in Tipton, Oklahoma and also operates branch warehouses in Electra, Texas and Vernon, Texas. The cooperative was organized in 1937. It serves approximately 6,000 square miles in eleven counties throughout southwest Oklahoma (Jackson, Kiowa, Tillman, Comanche and Greer counties) and north central Texas (Hardeman, Wilbarger, Wichita, Foard, Baylor and Archer counties). 


SWRE is one of more than 750 Touchstone Energy Cooperatives across the nation that are dedicated to serving member-owners with integrity, accountability, innovation and a longstanding commitment to the community.



SWRE distributes electric power within the State of Oklahoma and Texas and has been identified as an ESF-12 "Critical Infrastructure Industry." Through these uncertain times, we want our members to know that SWRE linemen and employees are here for you and working to keep your power on!  


As always, the safety of our member-owners and employees is our top priority. The Tipton office lobby has reopened to the public, but you are still welcome to pay your bill through our website, SmartHub App, 24/7 automated telephone line (833-890-9510), by mail or the dropbox located outside of the office in Tipton. Many members take their payments to local payment centers/banks and we encourage you to check with your preferred payment center/bank before visiting.



After much consideration for the health and safety of our membership, the SWRE Board of Directors has voted to postpone the 83rd Annual Meeting and 2020 District Meetings indefinitely. The Annual Meeting was scheduled to be held on August 20, 2020 with the District Meetings following in September. Stay informed on the new meeting dates coming in future publications of Oklahoma Living, Texas Co-op Power, on social media and this website.
