Economic Development

Southwestern Electric Cooperative works closely with community development groups to encourage economic development and bring new jobs to the area. Southwestern Electric is a member of the St. Louis Regional Commerce and Growth Association, the Southwestern Illinois Leadership Council, National Rural Economic Development Association, Madison County Community Development, and various local chambers of commerce.

We are also a partner of Sites Across America. Sites Across America is a national clearinghouse of available sites and buildings served by Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, designed to help real estate and site selection professionals pinpoint prime real estate in America's high growth areas.
