Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative is a member-owned electric distribution utility headquartered in Bastrop. Since 1939 we have been providing power to residents in all or part of 14 Central Texas counties, from the outskirts of Austin to what is rapidly becoming the outskirts of Houston.
Today, we have more than 65,000 members, serve more than 82,000 meters and own and maintain more than 11,000 miles of electric lines. We don’t own the power plants that generate the electricity our members use. We buy power from two of the state’s best utilities – the Lower Colorado River Authority, a river authority established by the State of Texas, and CPS Energy, San Antonio’s municipally owned utility. Both provide reliable, competitively priced power for our members. We are governed by an 11-member board of directors elected by our members and led by Mark Rose, our chief executive officer.
