Energy Price Trends in Waco

Waco has a deregulated energy market, meaning that residents are able to choose from competing electricity providers in Texas instead of a single regional provider.

Deregulation encourages competitive pricing which allows residents to choose the best fit for their home and budgeting needs. You can compare the top Texas energy companies and plans on Home Energy Club to find the cheapest energy rate for your home.

Average Electricity Rates in Waco

The average residential energy rate in Texas is 14.19 ¢/kWh. The national average is 16.11 ¢/kWh, about 12% higher than the Texas average.

Oncor Electric’s Move-in, Move-out, and Transfer

Oncor Electric Delivery is the transmission and distribution utility (TDU) for the Waco area. While you can choose whichever electricity provider you prefer, Oncor Electric Delivery handles Waco power outages and delivers power to your property.

Learn more about rates, power outage information, and move-in instructions below.

Residential Electricity Service in Waco

If you plan to move to Waco, you can choose from various residential electricity services that serve your area, such as Cirro Energy, TXU Energy, and Reliant Energy.

To find a residential electricity service, turn to Home Energy Club to help you compare different rates in your area. Once you find a plan that aligns with your budget, you can request that Oncor Electric Delivery starts delivering electricity on your chosen start date.

Move-in, Move-out, and Transfer Service

If you plan to move into or out of Waco, you can ask your current electricity provider to stop your plan. If you have a long-term plan and you’re moving out of the area, you still have the option to cancel your service without an early termination fee.

If your electricity provider also serves your new city, you can transfer your service. Before transferring, use Home Energy Club to compare rates to ensure you receive the most affordable rate in your new zip code.

Switching Electricity Providers

You may instead wish to switch energy providers. In this case, your new electricity company will help you transition from your old contract to your new contract. However, if you’re switching plans for your current home before your contract end date expires, beware of early termination fees (called ETFs).

The Electricity Facts Label (EFL) associated with each plan discloses the fee you’ll pay if you cancel early. If you find a plan with a much lower rate than you’re paying now, you may come out ahead by paying the early termination fee and switching, but you’ll need to do the math first. If you wait until 14 days of your current contract expiration to switch, you can avoid the fee.

Also, you can usually enroll in a plan weeks or months before the start date to secure the plan at the advertised rate at that time.

For more helpful information on moving to Texas or switching providers see our Electricity Shopping Guide.
