Bluebonnet Connects with Members Through New Blog

BluebonnetElectric Cooperative added another way to communicate with its members in August when it launched The Bluebonnet Blog. Through the blog, Bluebonnet members will read about what’s going on at Bluebonnet and in the energy industry. They’ll learn about technology that will affect how and when they consume electricity and how they’ll be able to use less power and save money.

“Our blog is a great way for us to engage our members in timely, two-way conversation,” said Mark Rose, Bluebonnet’s chief executive officer. “ It will complement our local pages in Texas Co-op Power magazine and the news and information we share through our website and our Twitter and Facebook posts. I encourage our members to check it out and let us know what they think. We want to know what’s important to them.”

The Bluebonnet Blog is online at blog.bluebonnetelectric.com. Blogs are a relatively new way companies are making a personal connection with their consumers through the Internet. The Bluebonnet Blog will be written by Bluebonnet employees and the occasional guest contributor. Readers will be able to comment on blog posts and see other readers’ comments.

Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative is one of the largest electric cooperatives in Texas and has been serving its members since 1939. Bluebonnet serves more than 82,000 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.
