Residential Electricity Service in Richardson

To activate residential electricity service when you first move to Richardson, you may need information about your future residence and its past electricity use:

  • Electricity Meter: Utilities use Smart Meters to measure energy use and most residences have a Smart Meter installed, but you can contact Oncor Electric Delivery at 888-222-8045 to request a meter for a newly built home. Also, go to SmartMeterTexas.com to access usage history for homes.
  • Electricity Provider: Home Energy Club can help you find electricity plans that match your energy needs and set up service in your home. Once you select a provider, you can indicate your move-in date to ensure prompt service during the online enrollment process or by calling an operator.

Move-in, Move-out, and Transfer Service

Whether you’re moving to Richardson from another Texas city or relocating to another area, communicate with your electricity providers about your plans. Energy companies should not charge you an early termination fee if you stop electricity service due to a move-out, even if you have a long-term plan extending past your move-out date.

Some providers serve multiple areas and may allow you to transfer your service to your new home instead of canceling and creating a new account. Compare energy plan rates in your new neighborhood on Home Energy Club to determine if your current provider has the best rate or whether other companies have better offerings.

Why is my Richardson energy bill so high?

Avoid high energy bills with gimmicky pricing and surprise fees by using HomeEnergyClub.com’s side-by-side comparisons of vetted plans. Other common causes for high energy bills include:

  • Rate increases: Variable rate plans allow energy providers to increase rates. Choosing a fixed plan with locked rates can help prevent unexpected increases.
  • Expired plans: Fixed-rate plans have expiration dates, leading to a price increase if you don’t renew before the contract ends.
  • Changes in demand: Energy costs on variable plans can increase during the summer and winter when electricity demand is highest.
  • Inefficient housing: If your home has inadequate insulation, electricity prices may increase. Keep costs low by replacing old insulation or adding sealants to doors and windows.
  • Energy usage: If you have a plan that is designed for more or less electricity usage than you use, your bill may be higher than necessary. Select an energy plan that suits your home size and electricity usage to avoid paying unnecessary high rates.
