Community Assistance is what matters

Unexpected financial hardships can strike any of us. New Braunfels Utilities (NBU), along with generous local community agencies, offers several programs to assist NBU customers who are having trouble making ends meet. We also offer free energy and water assessments to help our customers save money while conserving valuable resources. Working together through hardships is what makes New Braunfels such an amazing community, and NBU is proud to participate.
