Reliant Energy FAQs

  • Reliant Energy offers a variety of services, including fixed-rate and variable-rate residential plans, green energy options, and commercial energy rates for small, medium, and large businesses.

  • Yes, Reliant Energy requires a deposit when you sign up for your energy plan, unless you meet certain criteria. You may have your deposit waived for several reasons, including a high credit score. If you’d prefer not to pay a deposit, check out Reliant’s Prepaid Power plan or visit our guides on prepaid and no-deposit energy options.

  • Reliant Energy’s fixed-rate plans include an early termination fee if you cancel your services before the end of your contract period. These fees range from $150 to $295, and you can find them on your EFL.

  • Reliant Energy offers many different electricity plans. The best one for you depends on your energy usage habits. The company offers plans with free evenings or weekends — which are well-suited to those who use most of their energy during those times. Check out Reliant’s 100% solar plans if renewable energy is your top priority.
