Will on Bluebonnet’s Foundation Values: Safety, Courage, Respect, Reliability, Community and Love.
 
The wonderful thing about Bluebonnet is that our Foundation Values emanate from our employees and represent the commitment we all feel to serve our members and communities. Our relationship with our members is personal.
 
When a member walks into one of our member service centers, our employees almost certainly know him or her. Likewise, when one of our linemen goes to a member’s property to restore power, it’s possible they grew up together or know each other through church or their kids’ school or sports. Those connections are meaningful and set us apart from other utilities.
