We’re Thankful for You

With Thanksgiving just around corner, I’d like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for your membership and support of South Plains Electric Cooperative. And this is no offhand or perfunctory thanks. Because of your connection to South Plains Electric, we are able to make our community a better place. It might sound trite if it weren’t so true.

In the spirit of this month’s holiday, I think it’s important to let our members know just what an impact you have on our Co-op and the greater community, likely in ways you may not even realize.

Your Vote. Your Voice. Your Cooperative.


Like other electric co-ops, South Plains Electric Cooperative is guided by an elected board of directors that represents its members when making important decisions. Being a member of the co-op’s board is an important and highly responsible position in the community, and directors volunteer considerable time and energy to the cause of powering our communities and empowering co-op members to improve the quality of their lives.

Operation Round Up Scholarship Recipients

The Operation Round Up® board awarded 42 scholarships to local member students.

Operation Round Up®, a community service program supported by the members of South Plains Electric Cooperative, awarded $42,000 in scholarships. Fourty-two member students will receive a $1,000 scholarship for the 2019-2020 school year. These students were selected on their scholastic records, school and community service activities, essay questions and financial need.

Our Strength Comes From Working Together

Cooperatives serve their members best when they work together.

Cooperation—it’s the lifeblood of electric cooperatives and a concept vital to the success of our form of business.

If you’ve heard the old saying that there is power in numbers, then you understand why Cooperative Principle No. 6, Cooperation Among Cooperatives, is key for us. Cooperatives serve their members best when they work together.
