After being established in 1909, Bryan Texas Utilities (BTU) has served the citizens of Bryan, Texas, as well as parts of Burleson and Robertson counties, for almost 110 years. As a public power utility and not-for-profit, they base their rates on the cost for the utility to serve each customer class. Currently, they have over 58,000 residential, commercial, and industrial customers and operate the Dansby Power Plant located on Lake Bryan. By having their own power plant, they are able to generate electricity to sell on the market. This enables them to sell power when the price is high and purchase power when the price is low. Ultimately, keeping their rates below the state average. Bryan City Council, with guidance from a volunteer Board of Directors, locally governs Bryan Texas Utilities.
With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility
The mission of Bryan Texas Utilities is to provide reliable power to their customers at the lowest possible rate. And keeping the lights on in every home or building and the traffic lights working in their area is no small feat. Linemen and women constantly brave inclement weather to build, maintain, and repair utility lines to make sure their customers are always taken care of. We’re guessing that’s why they have been ordering shirts and employee uniforms from us for over 10 years! Their determination and passion for customer service have also earned them the American Public Power Association’s highest award for reliability not once – TWICE!
Lighting the Way
You also can’t describe Bryan Texas Utilities without mentioning their community engagement. Each summer, everyone in the Brazos Valley is invited to spend their hot summer days at Lake Bryan for kayaking, camping, and swimming. BTU also focuses on providing opportunities for kids in the area with scholarships and an annual chance to apply for a Government in Action all expenses paid trip to tour Washington D.C. to learn more about how our government works. All in addition to providing countless hours and support to other local organizations and events that promote community growth, well-being, and education!
Thank you, Bryan Texas Utilities, for keeping the lights on for us!
