Why We Love Waco

Perhaps best known today for its Fixer Upper fame, those who live in Waco know there’s a lot more to this Central Texas city than some may think. Known as the Heart of Texas for its location between Austin and Dallas, Waco has plenty of Texas bona fides. Dr Pepper was invented here in the 1880s, after all.  

Along with Baylor University and the Magnolia Market at the Silos, the city is full of things that help put it on the map. Places like Cameron Park, the Cameron Park Zoo, the Texas Ranger Museum and Hall of Fame, the Waco Mammoth National Monument and the Dr Pepper Museum are just a start.

Local restaurants, shops, art galleries and festivals add much to enjoy throughout the year. Embraced by the scenic Bosque and Brazos Rivers, Waco is charming, diverse, family-friendly and as authentically Texan as they come. What’s not to love about that?

Frequently Asked Questions about Electricity Service in Waco

  • Who provides electricity in Waco?

    There are many electricity companies in Waco. However, the entity responsible for providing electricity to your town’s home and businesses is Oncor. As the Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU) for Waco and much of North Texas, Oncor is responsible for all aspects of the delivery of electricity. This includes maintaining power lines and measuring how much electricity your home consumes. As your TDU, Oncor is who you would contact if you were experiencing a power outage or you need to report downed power lines.
  • Is Waco part of Texas’ deregulated energy market?

    Like roughly 85 percent of the Lone Star State, Waco is part of Texas’ deregulated energy market. For folks like you, this means that you can choose your electricity company and the right plan that fits your lifestyle and budget at any time. With all this choice comes an abundance of overly complicated plans that just about anyone would struggle to understand. That’s why we keep it simple here at Lone Star Energy by offering our straightforward electricity plans in Waco and throughout Texas.
  • How can I save on my electricity bill in Waco?

    Managing our budgets is always a great idea. If you are looking to pay less on your electricity bill, you could shop around to see what other companies are offering and how their price per kilowatt-hour compares to your current plan. In Texas, you can switch electricity providers at any time. Do so before the final 14 days of your current contract and you may have to pay an early termination fee, however.

    Beyond switching plans, limiting how much electricity you’re using can help make a difference in your bottom line. With hot summers and mild winters, your peak power consumption will likely be from May through September. Here are a few ways you can reduce your use in the summer and throughout the rest of the year:

    • Keep your thermostat at 78 degrees as much as possible during the summer. The Public Utilities Commission of Texas (PUCT) says this temperature strikes the right balance between energy efficiency and personal comfort. Take it a step further by setting your thermostat to 80 degrees or higher if you leave for more than four hours.
    • Installing solar window screens can help reduce solar heat gain, which can make a big impact on your air conditioning costs during the summer. Even keeping your curtains closed during the day can keep your home cool.
    • Get your air conditioner serviced before the heat of summer arrives to ensure it’s working efficiently and to catch any issues before they happen.
    • Change your air conditioner’s air filter once every 90 days (or sooner if you have pets). Dirty air filters make your air conditioner work all that much harder; replacing them routinely can lower your energy consumption by up to 15 percent.
    • Switch out all your incandescent light bulbs with LEDs, which are 75 percent more energy efficient and last up to 25 times longer.
    • Unplug all appliances and turn off lights and ceiling fans when you leave a room.
    • Check the weather stripping on your doors and windows to ensure there are no air leaks.
  • How do I switch power companies in Waco?

    Since Waco is part of Texas’ deregulated energy market, switching is easy. Generally, all you need to do is complete the enrollment process with your new provider and they will handle all the details. Making the switch to Lone Star Energy only takes a few minutes, whether you do it online or by giving us a call. Visit our enrollment page, enter your zip code, choose your plan and fill in your personal details and we’ll contact your current company to ensure your switch goes by without a hitch.

    Do you have any questions? We’re always here to help! Give us a call anytime at 888-843-2882.

  • Who do I contact about a power outage in Waco?

    If you live in Waco and you’re experiencing a power outage, contact Oncor. As your Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU), Oncor is responsible for maintaining power lines and ensuring the seamless delivery of electricity to your home. You can report your power outage on their website, by calling 888-313-4747 or texting OUT to 66267.
