Deaf Smith Electric Cooperative

Deaf Smith Electric Cooperative, Inc. is a non-profit rural electric utility cooperative headquartered in Hereford, Texas. The cooperative was organized in 1936[1] and is a member of the Golden Spread Electric Cooperative.[2] The cooperative is named for the county where it was founded, which is in turn named for Erastus "Deaf" Smith, a partially-deaf scout and soldier who served in the Texas Revolution.[3]

Deaf Smith Electric Cooperative serves the Texas counties of Deaf Smith, Castro and Parmer as well as part of Oldham County.[4] The cooperative annually awards two $2000 scholarships to high school seniors in Texas.[5]
