Corpus Christi averages 233 days a year of sunshine and offers 113 miles of Gulf Coast beaches with a family-friendly, laid-back vibe. Tourists come here, not only for the spectacular weather and coastline, but to visit attractions such as the Texas State Aquarium, the bayfront promenade, and North Beach.

Corpus Christi is one of the most visited vacation destinations in Texas. One of the gems of the Corpus Christi area is the Padre Island National Seashore–the longest stretch of undeveloped coastline in the world and a mecca to people who want to watch migratory birds and hatchling turtles.

The ninth largest city in Texas with a population over 300,000 people, Corpus Christi has a small town feel with a world-class view. From downtown to Calallen to Ingleside, Corpus Christi offers countless ways to enjoy sun, sea and clear blue skies. With a spectacular setting in the Gulf of Mexico, Corpus Christi is a great place to play tourist—and an even better place to call home.

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.
