Reliant Energy serves more than 1.5 million Texas power customers with retail electricity. Like many Texas electric companies, they offer both residential and commercial plans. Residential customers have access to both fixed-rate plans and month-to-month flex plans, as well as a new program called Cap-and-Save. In 2009, the retail operations were acquired by NRG energy. The corporate site can be found at www.reliant.com.
Reliant Energy provides energy assistance through a variety of programs, aimed at various members of the Texas community who may need help with their electricity bills. Solutions for low-income families include a deposit program that provides hundreds of thousands of dollars to agencies to help Reliant customers pay their electricity deposits. Reliant also participates in the CARE program that provides qualifying customers with one time annual assistance through non-profit social service agencies in our communities.
Home weatherization initiatives and the PowerHouse program help low-income customers make energy efficiency improvements to their homes. They also sponsor a solar and wind buyback program for residential customers and independent school districts that use Distributed Renewable Generation systems, such as wind turbines or solar panels.
