Thank you for your interest in renewable energy. This section applies to renewable energy producers of less than 50 kW.
Below are links to the tariff, estimated schedule and forms required to begin the process of connecting your renewable energy system to the Bluebonnet distribution grid.
Items needed for connection:
While installation can be expensive, tax credits can help you reduce the cost of your wind or solar system.
You don’t have to install your own renewable energy system to include renewables as a source of your electricity. You can request our Green Energy Rate and we'll purchase your monthly energy from renewable wind power generated in West Texas.
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.
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.
