Meet the Board

Serving today at Southwest Public Power District are eight board members and a board attorney. Each county serviced by SWPPD is represented by at least two directors. Together they have over 170 years of experience. Their dedication and knowledge of the electrical industry is valued and their top priority is to provide reliable electricity to our customers at a reasonable price. 

The SWPPD board meetings are normally held on the third Wednesday of every month and begin at 7:00 pm CST in the Palisade office. These meetings are open to the public. Please contact our General Manager, Curtis Kayton or a director that represents your county if you have an item to bring to the board.
