Change for Charity

Lending a helping hand to our neighbors in need

KPUB’s Change for Charity program fund is administered by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a 501c3 nonprofit, to grant electric bill assistance to eligible households. The funds are administered at no additional cost and are exclusively for KPUB’s residential customers.

The AACOG Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) is designed to help low-income people, particularly the elderly and handicapped, overcome the high cost of energy through the installation of energy conservation measures at no cost to the applicant. Although the program does not address major home repairs, it can help lower the amount of energy used in a home by enhancing the structure’s thermal boundary. Like a styrofoam cup, the house will stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. The less energy it takes to heat or cool the house, the more money is saved.

Generators for Community Events

In recognizing its role as a responsible public entity, KPUB may provide “in-kind” support with our generators and temporary power distribution equipment, to various organizations within the KPUB service area which serve a public purpose.

Such support may be provided for community not-for-profit organizations and state and local governmental units for a variety of projects, programs or activities in and for the benefit of the local community. Support may be provided for, Local Government, Economic Development and Educational Establishments.

Authorization for above mentioned in-kind donations will be at the discretion of the General Manger/CEO.

Burned veterans’ discount program

The Burned Veterans’ Discount Program was approved by the Kerrville Public Utility Board, effective October 1, 2013.

  • The program provides up to a $90 per month discount for the months of April through October on the primary residential electric service account only of the KPUB customer who is a severely burned veteran and has completed the application process.
  • The discount may not result in a credit balance (Example: Electric bill is $85.00 – the discount will only be $85.00).
  • A medical military facility certification is required for an applicant to be eligible.
  • Medical confirmation will be necessary every 12 months to continue program participation.
  • The applicant must be a military veteran who has significantly decreased ability to regulate his or her body’s core temperature because of severe burns received during armed conflict or in combat.
  • Only the applicant’s primary residence that he or she currently occupies is eligible for the discount. The discount will apply even if the veteran is not the customer of record.
  • The credit is valid on one electric account only.
  • The current rules and regulations shall apply to the program, including the payment and collection process.
  • This program can be modified or cancelled at any time without notice.


At KPUB, we are actively engaged and involved in our community in a variety of ways. We strive to make the Hill Country—our home, too—a better place to live, work and go to school. For us, it’s all about powering a better community. We love to give back to the communities we serve through our volunteer program, and we invest revenues directly back into the area by supporting local events, nonprofits and our schools financially.

We also provide in-kind resources to community events such as Kerrville’s 4th on the River, Kerrville’s Festival of the Arts and the set up for the Kerrville downtown Christmas tree lighting at the courthouse, just to name a few.

Our company-wide commitment to volunteerism connects our employees to local volunteer opportunities by identifying areas where we can give our time and make a difference in our community. KPUB proudly volunteers with nonprofits in our community such as:

  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Salvation Army of Kerrville
  • Our local food pantries
  • Meals on Wheels
  • UGRA’s Annual River Cleanup
  • Community blood drives
  • & more!
