If you'd like to install a wind or solar generation system on your property, our team will walk you through the process of connecting it to the Bluebonnet grid. There are no additional charges as long as existing lines and transformers are used.
Thank you for your interest in Bluebonnet’s renewable energy Net Metering Program (NMP). This program is intended for Renewable Net Metering Producers of 10 kW or less.
Click the links below to access the estimated interconnecting schedule and forms required to begin the process of connecting your renewable energy system to the Bluebonnet distribution grid.
Provide the following information and completed forms (Net Meter Package) to Bluebonnet before the interconnection process begins.
Most members with solar or wind systems still purchase energy from Bluebonnet each month. But if you generate more electricity than you consume, we'll buy it from you at wholesale generation rates. This will be monitored on your monthly bill and credited to your bill the following February.

While installation can be expensive, tax credits can help you reduce the cost of your wind or solar system.
There is an alternative way to participate in renewable energy. You can request our Green Energy Rate and we'll purchase your monthly energy from renewable wind power generated in West Texas and on the Texas Coast.
The Bluebonnet Green Energy Rate is a half-cent more per kilowatt-hour (kWh) ($.005) than our regular rate. For a member using 1,000 kWh of electricity per month, that translates to an additional $5 per bill.
Wind power is produced at the Indian Mesa and Delaware Mountain wind farms in west Texas and the Papalote Creek Wind Farm on the Texas coast.
There are no activation or termination fees, and you can opt in or out at any time. The Green Energy Rate will go into effect at the beginning of your next billing cycle.
To opt in, visit a Member Service Center or call 800-842-7708.
