Southwestern Electric Cooperative provides power to nearly 23,000 residential, commercial, agricultural, and industrial members in southwestern Illinois, including parts of the St. Louis Metro East. As a not-for-profit utility, Southwestern Electric is committed to providing high-quality energy services at the lowest possible prices. We're guided by the simple belief that a member-owned, member-controlled company should operate in the best interests of the families, neighbors and communities it serves.
