Planned Power Outage Schedule
Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative is constantly working to improve its electric distribution system.
Occasionally, those changes and improvements – most often to increase voltage – require isolated, short-term planned power outages to ensure the work is done efficiently and safely.
Increasing the voltage a power line is capable of delivering is necessary so Bluebonnet can continue to provide safe, reliable power in areas where growth is occurring and demand for electricity is increasing.
During these voltage changes, Bluebonnet crews flip switches on hundreds of transformers or replace transformers with equipment designed for higher voltage.
Outages are scheduled during the spring and fall, when temperatures are milder. The duration varies, but they typically last anywhere from an hour to 90 minutes.
Bluebonnet members in Lee, Milam and Williamson counties will experience temporary power outages on Tuesday, Dec. 18, as crews complete an upgrade to electric distribution lines. The upgrade will increase the voltage carried through the power lines and is needed to continue to reliably serve a growing number of members in the area.
Power will be interrupted to Bluebonnet members from 9 to 10 a.m. The streets affected during the outage include County Roads 401, 402, 403, 404 and 405, and Private Roads 4031 and 4032.
Also on Tuesday, Dec. 18, more members in Lee County will experience temporary power outages as crews complete an upgrade to electric distribution lines. Power will be interrupted to those members from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. and the streets affected during that outage include County Roads 434, 439, 440, 441, 442, 443 and 458, Private Road 943 and FM 486 South.
