About Boerne Utilities

The City of Boerne owns and operates its own electric, water, wastewater, and natural gas systems. We operate under the regulatory jurisdiction of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), the Railroad Commission of Texas (RRCT), and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). It is our mission to not only meet but exceed the minimum requirements of those regulatory agencies, and we have an excellent history of doing so.

Public utility system operations are funded via rates and fees received from utility customers, not city taxes. In some areas, our city limits have grown beyond the borders of our utility service areas. In those outlying areas, other public and private utility systems provide services to city customers according to their own rate schedules.
