The local utility for Waco is Oncor Electric Delivery. The utility company is responsible for restoring power during an outage and maintaining power lines. If you experience a power outage, contact your utility, not your electricity provider. You can contact Oncor in the following ways:

Types of plans

There are many types of electricity plans available to Waco residents:

  • Fixed-rate plan: If you want the stability of paying the same electricity rate each month, then you probably want a fixed-rate plan. With this type of electricity plan, you lock in a particular rate in your contract. Your rate won’t increase (or decrease) for the length of your contract.
  • Variable-rate plan: With a variable-rate energy plan, you don’t lock in a particular rate in your contract. Instead, your rate fluctuates with the market. It could increase in certain months and go way down in others. There’s no certainty with this type of plan.
  • No-deposit plan: If you’d rather not pay a deposit for your electricity plan, you can opt for a no-deposit plan. Keep in mind that these aren’t available to everyone. Your deposit is often based on your credit score — those with poor credit pay a deposit while those with good credit don’t. But you can also choose a prepaid plan to skip the credit check altogether.
  • Prepaid plan: A prepaid energy plan is a type of no-deposit plan that allows you to skip the credit check. You control your costs because you pay for your electricity upfront based on how much you plan to use. You aren’t locked into a contract, and you decide how much electricity to buy. 
  • Green energy plan: All Texas electricity plans include some green energy, but you can also choose a plan that is powered 100 percent by renewable energy. These types of plans are becoming more popular as homeowners want to reduce their carbon footprint.
