SaveOnEnergy has 20 years of experience working with various top-tier providers in deregulated markets. Because there are dozens of providers, hundreds of plans, and constantly changing rates, our reviews are not based on first-hand experience. We encourage customers to do their own research, compare multiple plans, and consider their individual priorities when choosing which provider is the best fit for them.

Reliant Energy FAQs

  • You can get started by entering your ZIP code on the SaveOnEnergy marketplace. Then, use the search filter feature and select Reliant from the dropdown list of providers. You’ll find all the Reliant plans offered in your area. You can read about each plan’s features and rates before making your choice. When you’re ready, you can sign up online.

  • Reliant usually charges a deposit before your service starts. Some customers may be able to waive the deposit, such as those with a high credit score. If you want to avoid paying a deposit, you can check out no-deposit electricity plans.

  • Reliant Energy was founded in 2000. In 2009, the retail electricity part of Reliant’s business was acquired by NRG Energy, which retained the name Reliant Energy.

  • It depends on what your energy usage habits are. Customers who like flexibility may prefer Reliant’s variable-rate option, while those looking for stability may want to go with a fixed-rate plan. One of the great things about energy deregulation is that you can decide which Reliant Energy plan is best for you.
