South Plains Electric Cooperative Scores High in Recent Member Satisfaction Survey

The 2017  member survey results put SPEC in the top 2 percent of electric cooperatives nationally, a full 17 points higher than the utility industry average.
We’d like to thank our members for helping us score a “92” in the recent American Customer Satisfaction Index.
Even though ACSI recognizes “customer” satisfaction, South Plains Electric members are, in fact, “owners.” That’s an important distinction. And it’s why we strive to provide a level of service that’s second to none.

The funds are made available by South Plains Electric members who ask to have their monthly bill rounded up to the next dollar.
