Sempra chairman and president Debra L. Reed said: "With its strong management team and long, distinguished history as Texas' leading electric provider, Oncor is an excellent strategic fit for our portfolio of utility and energy infrastructure businesses".
The $9.45 billion cash deal to acquire Energy Future and its ownership in Oncor includes Sempra's assumption of Oncor's debt, making the total value of the transaction $18.8 billion.
Lawyers disclosed that another bidder had emerged for Oncor during a bankruptcy hearing on Friday without revealing the name of the suitor. Hedge fund Elliott Management, which owns a significant portion of Oncor's debt, opposed Berkshire's takeover bid, saying it wasn't enough. The conglomerate, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2014, is saddled with about $50 billion in debt.
The deal is expected to close in the first half of 2018, however, it still needs the approval of the Public Utility Commission of Texas, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of DE, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice.
Buffett is famous for refusing to take part in bidding wars and the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that Sempra had sweetened its initial bid of $9.3 billion for Oncor.
Sempra said in its statement announcing the deal that it "will maintain the existing independence of Oncor's board of directors, which has protected Oncor and its customers during the ongoing Energy Future bankruptcy".

The identities of the girls have not been released. "We have not determined who the person responsible is yet", Donelan concluded. Donelan said that this case is one of the most hard that their police officers have ever walked in on.
Reed added: "It is important for Oncor to remain financially strong". The purchase also should address the concerns of the Texas regulators, creditors, and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, she said.
Allen Nye, who is now Oncor's general counsel, will succeed Bob Shapard as the company's CEO.
Claiming the deal will strengthen Oncor's underlying financial strength and credit ratings, Sempra said it is committed to supporting Oncor's $7.5 billion, five-year capital investment plan. Berkshire has said it'll walk away from the deal if a judge doesn't approve the plan on Monday.
Through the agreed upon 47 regulatory commitments, Texas stakeholders "have rightly focused on protecting Oncor from unnecessary risk, including having no debt at intermediate holding companies", according to Berkshire.
"Texas is a great state for business, and we look forward to future opportunities to invest", Abel said.
