Reliant Energy FAQs

  • Reliant Energy sells electricity plans to residential and business customers in Texas. Some of the most common electricity plans it offers include fixed-rate, variable-rate, and green energy plans.

  • Yes, Reliant typically charges a deposit before you start service. However, you may be able to avoid the deposit if you meet certain criteria, like a high credit score. If you don’t meet Reliant’s criteria and want to avoid paying a deposit, you may want to consider a prepaid or no-deposit electricity plan.

  • Reliant will charge you an early termination fee if you choose to end your fixed-rate plan before the contract expires. You can avoid paying this fee if you cancel the agreement because you’re moving out of Reliant’s service area. Variable-rate plans don’t have an ETF, so you won’t have to pay anything to terminate this type of plan.

  • The best Reliant plan for you will depend on how and when you use most energy. For instance, you can get plans with free evenings or free weekends. Business owners can tailor a commercial electricity plan to meet the needs of their operations. If you prefer an eco-friendly option, you can find a plan that relies entirely on green energy. With so many plans to choose from, a wide variety of customers can find the best plan for their requirements.
