Reporting Outages and the Electric Outage Notification Program

Customers can report outages 24/7 by calling 830.629.4NBU (4628) or for electric outages only, text #OUT to 85700. Standard data rates apply.

To receive real-time updates on electric outages, we recommend that customers enroll in our Electric Outage Text Notification program. You can report outages, check the status of device interruptions, and receive alerts for service information. Currently, water outages are updated on the water outage viewer only.

To enroll in the program, you must have a mobile number associated with your account. Enrolling is easy and can be done by texting NBU to 85700. The program only applies to electric outages currently.

How to Check on the Status

When affected by an outage, a customer may text #Status to check the status of an electric outage. A text will be received from NBU’s notification system, reporting the status of the outage at the customer’s location.

Restored Service

Whether the customer reported the outage or received notification of the outage from NBU, the customer will receive a text once the electric outage is restored.
