Requirements

Welcome to Southwest Electric’s service area!  Whether you are building a home, installing a mobile home or moving into an apartment, we can help you start the process of getting electricity.

 

Before your meter can be set and receive power, Southwest Electric needs information from you based on the county in which you live.  Below is a breakdown of the requirements by county.  After you have collected all of the information, please call our office at 800-287-8564 to speak to a Member Services Representative.  The MSR will place your service order and give you options for paying the deposit.
