Heart of Texas Electric Cooperative is always working to improve service to our members. A recent improvement added is our new outage texting service.
On October 22, Heart of Texas EC completed a mass enrollment of our members. If your cell phone number was listed in your account information, you were automatically enrolled. Now, if you have a power outage in the future, you can report your outage via text message. Simply text OUT to 1-800-840-2957.
If your account information did not include the your cell phone number, you can still enroll. Sign into your account online, Select Profile; then Accounts. It may take a couple of days for the new number to appear in your account information.
