Get to know energy choice in Waco

The city of Waco is in the heart of Texas midway between Dallas-Fort Worth and Austin. It was founded next to a Texas Ranger fort. Today, Waco is home to Baylor University, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame, the Dr. Pepper Museum, and a population of close to 145,000 residents. When it comes to powering their homes, these residents can choose the electricity provider with the best electricity rates.

It is no easy task choosing an energy provider and the process can be confusing. But residents can chart an easier course by signing up with Atlas, an online energy marketplace that puts its users first to help you find the best electricity rates for your home.

Your map to Waco utilities and providers

There are two pieces to electricity in Texas — electric utilities and energy providers. While the utility company maintains the power lines and delivers your electricity, the energy provider is who you buy electricity from. The utility company serving the Waco service area is Oncor Electric Delivery.

  • Customers: 10+ million
  • Areas served: 408 cities and 98 counties across the state
  • Outages: Call 888-313-4747 or report it through the company’s online outage center

Texas offers many electric providers to choose from. It’s a big list to navigate on your own. At Atlas, we do the hard work for you, mapping a path to the right energy provider for your needs. Waco electric companies include:

How Atlas compares Waco electric plans

Electricity plans in Waco can be challenging to understand. Do you choose based on rates, credits, or type of electricity? How do you evaluate your options? Consider the following:

  • Waco electric prices are always in a state of flux. Depending on the plan, you can be charged a different rate each month.
  • Texas summers can get hot — and that can have a massive impact on your bill. You could go from paying $95 in April to $196 in August, according to 2019 averages.
  • Some plans offer credits based on the amount of electricity you use. In some cases, it could be less expensive to use 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) than 999 kWh.

You can follow a clear roadmap when you sign up for a free account with Atlas. We look at Waco electric providers alongside your electricity usage for the entire year and make recommendations that are customized to your needs. Then, we continue to track your plan in case we find a better option for you.
