SWEPCO – Western Arkansas

AP.Power.PrimaryIcons.RGB.Black

There’s much to see and discover on Arkansas’ Western Mountain Frontier. Home to some of the most scenic parts of the country, tourists flock from around the world to experience a uniquely Arkansas experience. This includes such deep history as the Fort Smith National Historic Site, or undiscovered gems like Arkansas’ hidden wine country—the largest wine and grape juice production happens right here in the perfect climate of Arkansas. Spend a weekend motorcycling many of the winding highways, or experience the endless opportunities for outdoor fun, like fishing, golfing, canoeing, camping, or attending one of the many festivals that happen year-round. That’s why 26 million tourists visit the state per year, spending over $6.7 billion to enjoy the recreational activities Arkansas has to offer.

Serving Western Arkansas’ energy needs is SWEPCO, short for the Southwestern Electric Power Company. As a forward-thinking energy company, SWEPCO has undertaken various projects to ensure a cleaner environment throughout Arkansas, including a $408 million project for the installation of additional environmental controls at the 528-megawatt coal-fueled Flint Creek Power Plant based in Northwest Arkansas. Additionally, SWEPCO has made projections to incorporate more renewable energy into its energy mix over the next 20 years, including:

  • Coal capacity to drop to 35% (from 46%)
  • Renewable energy to grow to 29% of our resource mix – including 16% wind, 12% solar, 1% distributed generation
  • Energy efficiency to grow to 4% 

And because SWEPCO knows that the environment and its energy is inextricably linked, SWEPCO regularly publishes its environmental reports concerning its efforts towards a better standard of living and a clean energy future.

How does Arcadia Power help me pay my SWEPCO bill more efficiently?

When you enroll in Bill Pay, Arcadia Power will receive your SWEPCO bill and we will send you one statement. This makes how you pay SWEPCO bills easier.

However, if you aren’t enrolled in Arcadia Power’s Bill Pay program, you will continue to receive your SWEPCO utility bills Additionally, if you receive separate utility bills for gas, water, or sewage, those bills from your SWEPCO (and other utilities) will continue to come in the mail.

If you’re curious, here’s how the process works:

1

Your SWEPCO bill is sent directly to Arcadia Power.

2

We email you a statement that includes your utility bill charge, your clean energy and overall energy usage, and savings credits or charges from any Arcadia Power programs you are enrolled in.
