NBU recognized as Smart Energy Provider

New Braunfels Utilities has earned recognition as a Smart Energy Provider from the American Public Power Association.

NBU was recognized as a company for its commitment to providing low-cost, quality and reliable electric services, the APPA said. Public power utilities that receive the honor have demonstrated leading practices in smart energy program structure, energy efficiency, environmental and sustainability initiatives, and customer experience.


“We are honored to be recognized for our efforts to support our community’s responsible energy use,” said David Hubbard, NBU director of energy markets and customer solutions. “We take a lot of pride in the programs we offer that help our customers save money and reduce our collective footprint on the environment.”

The Smart Energy Provider designation was presented to NBU on Oct. 29 during the APPA’s annual Customer Connections Conference held in New Orleans.

This is the first time the Smart Energy Provider designation has been awarded by the APPA, and NBU joined more than 60 public power utilities nationwide that received the honor.
