Known also as the “Key City,” because of its location as an entry point to the West, Abilene sits near the geographic center of the state. It lies at the heart of a 22-county area known as “The Big Country.”

It’s a small town with a strong sense of family and community, and Abilene’s West Texas heritage is evident in its historic downtown, theaters, museums, and railroad depot over a century old. Begun as a whistle-stop along the Texas & Pacific Railway, Abilene can claim among its citizens “Wild Bill” Hickock, who was the town’s marshal.

Today, Abilene is known for its rodeos, including the West Texas Fair and Rodeo, that spotlight the best of “The Big Country.” These events draw thousands of visitors each year—including western heritage enthusiasts, ranchers, ropers, riders, cowboy poets, and artisans.

Home to over 120,000 residents, Abilene is a family-friendly town with a neighborly feeling, affordable cost of living, and top-performing schools.

Whether you’re new to town or a long-time member of the community, Reliant Energy is here to help you find the right energy plan and electricity prices for your needs. We’re proud to help power Abilene households as one of the leading retail electric service providers in The Friendly Frontier.
