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 is temporarily closed to the public. We will miss seeing you, but we want to remind you of all the ways you can stay in touch (without touching!) below.
SWRE is also following "Shelter in Place" recommendations to limit the number of employees at the office at one time. To ensure the safety of our employees, we have enabled an automated telephone attendant that will direct your phone call from the Tipton office to the right department. Give us a call at 1-800-256-7973 if we can assist you!
