Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative goes live with customer Web portal

June 17, 2010–Siemens Energy Inc. completed installation of the first full-scale roll-out of eMeter’s Energy Engage customer web portal on-site at Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative in Bastrop, Texas. The portal was deployed on top of the eMeter EnergyIP meter data management platform in order to provide Bluebonnet’s consumers with easily accessible and understandable daily usage and cost information. With the information collected, customers will be able to assess the implications of variable-rate pricing as regulators consider moving to time-of-use and event-based rates in the future.

“Energy Engage is an instrumental piece of our sustainable grid program. We feel it empowers our members to make smart economic decisions relating to their energy usage and will increase member satisfaction,” said Mark Rose, Bluebonnet Electric’s CEO.

Through the use of multi-channel communications, Energy Engage provides a comprehensive exchange of information. The result will allow Bluebonnet to have transparency into consumer cost savings derived from using Energy Engage. In addition, the service also enhances the consumer experience by enabling proactive consumer engagement and by providing advice from respected sources for best practices and cost-saving tips related to electricity usage.

Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative serves more than 80,000 meters and owns and maintains about 11,000 miles of power lines, located across more than 3,800 square miles within 14 central Texas counties.
