Looking to install new electric service? This tool can help


Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative has launched a new tool on that can give current and potential members an idea of what it may cost to bring electric service to their property.

For now, the tool only can be used for single-family homes, barns or wells that require power lines to be extended from existing facilities no more than half a mile. The tool allows its user to run multiple scenarios, such as varying sizes of structures, and provides a rough estimate of cost for overhead or underground lines.

The tool does not account for unique site conditions, such as elevation changes or certain types of soil. Other costs, for meter loops, special equipment or preparing underground service, are not calculated by the tool.
