Southwestern Power Administration


Southwestern has worked with its Federal employees and contractors to assume a remote working posture where possible, beginning in March 2020. Essential workers in Southwestern’s dispatch areas report to work to keep the lights on, but follow strict social distance, face covering, and hygiene rules to minimize exposure, as do Southwestern’s linemen and other essential workers. Administrative staff, such as mailroom personnel are on site to make sure day-to-day business matters are addressed. Other employees report to Southwestern’s offices on an as-needed basis.
