Log On To Bluebonnet’s Net Energy Market And Reduce High Electric Bills This Summer

Central Texans already have endured more than a dozen 100- degree-plus days, and summer, according to the calendar, has just arrived.

While Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative members can’t avoid the record-breaking heat, the coop is offering a way for members to avoid high electric bills.

Bluebonnet has a special feature on its website (www.bluebonnetelectric.coop) called the Net Energy Market that provides members with current information about the amount of electricity they are using, allowing them to better control the amount of power they use.

“We know no one likes their summer electric bills,” said Mark Rose, Bluebonnet’s chief executive officer. “ The Net Energy Market lets our members know how much electricity they’re using and will help them control their consumption and potentially lower their summer bills. It’s a powerful tool.”

In addition to finding out how much power members use each day, they also can see how much their bill is projected to be and set up email and text message alerts so they will know when their bill passes an amount they choose.

Don’t wait until high temperatures and higher bills get you down. Start saving today. Net Energy Market is free and available at www.bluebonnetelectric.coop. Questions? Call 800-842-7708.

Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative is one of the largest electric cooperatives in Texas and has been serving its members since 1939. Bluebonnet serves more than 81,000 meters and owns and maintains 11,000 miles of power lines, located across more than 3,800 square miles within 14 Central Texas counties. Bluebonnet’s service area stretches from Travis County to Washington County, and from Milam County down to Gonzales County.
