Oncor rate hike softened

Ennis’ teamwork with more than 140 other municipalities protesting a planned Oncor rate increase looks like it will lessen the blow of the requested boost.
The cities, which took issue with Oncor’s requested $353 million rate boost to residential, commercial and street lighting, filed in January to suspend the rate. That proposed increase reportedly would have boosted the average ratepayer’s bill by $5.
