Safety Starts with You

May is National Electrical Safety Month.

Electricity plays many roles in our lives, from powering baby monitors, cell phones and lighting, to running HVAC systems and appliances. No wonder we get so comfortable with its instant availability that when we flip a switch, we expect most systems or devices to do the job. 

Rigors and Rewards

Lineman

If you were to poll a random sample of local high school or college students about their career aspirations, not many would have electrical line work at the top of their lists. And truthfully, anyone considering a career in the utility industry would be wise to carefully consider this specific role.

Co-ops: Focused on Service, Not Profits

Now, as always, it’s a good time to be a member of an electric cooperative.

Not only are co-ops locally owned and controlled—by you, the members—they are locally run to serve your needs.

While many Texas electricity customers pay their power bills to companies that answer to faraway stockholders who demand a healthy profit every quarter, local members call the shots for electric co-ops.

OSMO Fosters Learning - First-grade students at Dupree Elementary benefit from Mini Grant

Students

The Operation Round Up Board of Directors initiated a program offering small, $500 grants to teachers. Grants were available to K-12 teachers in art and science for the 2018-2019 school year. The funds are made available by South Plains Electric Cooperative members contributing to Operation Round Up. Their monthly bill is rounded up to the next dollar, and the extra change, averaging only $6 per year, funds projects like the teacher mini-grants, scholarships and much more.

Please Answer the Call

A brand new year is upon us and we at South Plains Electric Cooperative are continuing our quest to provide safe, reliable electric service at the lowest possible cost, along with responsive and timely member service. We believe the best way to accomplish these goals is to solicit feedback from our membership.
