Important Supply Chain Update

Global supply chain disruptions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine have affected NBU’s ability to secure certain materials necessary to support new development projects. These disruptions will continue to delay projects waiting to be scheduled for a construction start date.

In order to help move projects forward, we’ve made a temporary change in our service application process:

  • Until the supply chain issue is resolved, development projects will no longer have to wait for NBU electric service to be in place before final acceptance can be issued for water and wastewater infrastructure. Final acceptance of water and wastewater infrastructure will allow for application for water meters, release of construction bonds, commencement of the warranty period, and allow builders the opportunity to apply for a building permit.
  • Please note, that this constitutes building at your own risk as supply chain conditions may not improve in the near future and could even worsen. Any delay in receiving electric service should be shared upfront with potential home buyers to help manage expectations as to when a house will be ready for occupancy. The account will remain in a builder’s/developer’s name and cannot be transferred to a homeowner until electric, water, and/or sewer service/meters are in place.
