The typical Belton resident will pay an additional $2.35 per month for electricity under the terms of a rate settlement struck between Texas cities and their utility provider, Oncor Electric Delivery, LLC.

Consultants on behalf of cities serviced by Oncor – including Belton and Temple – settled on the 6.1 residential rate increase last month after the utility giant filed a request with the Public Utility Commission (PUC) in January in the hopes of raising rates by about 15 percent.
