Welcome to Heart of Texas Electric Co-op

Scam Alert!

Warning - If you receive a call from our 1-800-840-2957 this is a scam! Do not answer. Do not give out any personal information. When you receive a call from a HOTEC representative, your caller ID will not show the 800 number. It will show our local numbers: 254-840-2871 or 254-231-0444.

The scam story is the same. A member receives a phone call from someone claiming their payment has been denied or never received, and demands immediate payment or they will shut off the power. Do not give them your bank or credit card information!

If you have received a call from this 800 number with someone claiming to be from Heart of Texas EC, please hang up and call the HOTEC office and local authorities.
