Grant on Bluebonnet's Foundation Values: Safety, Courage, Respect, Reliability, Community and Love.

Transparency is very important to us. As a member-owned cooperative, we respect our members' right to know how we are running their company. We invite their input so that we may continue to provide safe, reliable power and the best possible member service. We also respect our employees and empower them to make decisions and propose changes to management in order to improve every way, every day.

Grant's personal energy-saving practice: Dramatic adjustments to your thermostat when away from home can increase electric consumption and increase demand when you return, especially during peak utility consumption periods.
