New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) is excited to announce the launch of its new Participating Solar Contractor Program on March 1, 2024. Aimed at revolutionizing the way individuals and businesses harness the power of solar energy in our region, this program represents a significant leap forward in NBU’s commitment to customer-first support and resilient energy services.

Key Highlights of the Participating Solar Contractor Program:

Participating Solar Contractors: New Braunfels Utilities will now require contractors who intend to offer the NBU Solar Rebate to enroll in the new Participating Solar Contractor Program. Contractors must undergo annual training sessions and reviews to maintain eligibility for participation in the program and to ensure all participants comply with NBU’s program guidelines.

Improved Solar Rebate Process and Incentives: NBU now has dedicated staff to support customers throughout their solar power journey. Additionally, the NBU Solar Rebate has been adjusted to offer payouts to a broader number of solar installations.

Expanded Online Resources: An updated NBU solar-focused webpage ( provides customers with easy-to-navigate information and answers to solar-related questions, along with a step by step process of solar connection and available rebates. An online customer education course has also been created to provide guidance to those interested in solar energy for their home or business. Additionally, the webpage will serve as a valuable resource for contractors, offering clear insights into the NBU solar interconnection process.

Customer Support and Consultation: New Braunfels Utilities’ commitment to customer satisfaction extends beyond installation. We offer comprehensive customer support to ensure a seamless experience from the initial inquiry to the finalization of installed solar systems.
