Here's some nifty history about NBU. They're the ones who keep the lights on and the water flowing all across our great city. :) ... See MoreSee Less
Did you know that NBU was first established in 1942 when the City Commission of New Braunfels first purchased the electric system from San Antonio Public Service? Water and sewer systems were assigned to NBU by the city in 1959 and ever since then NBU has provided all 3 services! #PublicPowerWeek
