2-Degree Cool Weather Challenge


Don’t let Texas weather extremes deplete your bank account. Learn how adjusting your thermostat higher or lower can make a significant difference on your bill.

To enter Bluebonnet’s 2-Degree Cool Weather Challenge, lower your thermostat by 2 degrees. If you usually set it to 68°, push it to 66°! You can track your savings — down to the hour — using our online Energy Tracker. Then share the results or your tips on our Facebook post on staying warm for a chance to win one of two baskets full of energy-efficiency goodies, including a Nest Thermostat E.

Entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. Thursday, March 7, 2019.
The contest period is Feb. 28 – March 7, 2019. Two winners will be drawn at random on March 8, 2019. Only one entry per household. The winners’ names will be drawn from among all qualified entrants who are active Bluebonnet members.
