Ensuring our members are accurately billed for the energy they use is as important as providing safe, reliable electric service. Accurate bills start with the electric meter.
The meter reads then flow into Bluebonnet’s meter data management system that processes them, then sends them to our website, where our members can access their account information 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The data also goes to our billing system, which generates each members’ bill on a monthly basis.
Bluebonnet provides dusk-to-dawn security lights for members for a monthly charge ranging from about $10 to just under $20, depending on the size of the light.
