Electricity in DeSoto, Texas

father and son playing airplane

DeSoto is a scenic suburb just 15 miles outside of downtown Dallas in the southwest corner of Dallas County—or what’s known as “The Best Southwest.”

Established in 1847, it is one of the oldest settlements in North Texas and made the transition from a farmland community into an incorporated town in the 1940s as Dallas began booming.

DeSoto’s scenic views can be seen in dozens of parks and trails; plus, nearby is Cedar Hill State Park on the eastern shore of the 7,500-acre Joe Pool Lake.

DeSoto has a 60,000 square foot lighted BMX track hosting motos year-round in all racing categories—which was the first covered BMX track in the country.

Family-friendly events and festivals held throughout the year include a crawfish festival and free concerts in the park, a Juneteenth celebration and a fireworks festival.

There’s always something to do in the 21 square miles of scenic DeSoto and the surrounding Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.

Over 53,000 residents call DeSoto home, and Reliant is proud to help power DeSoto households—and the neighboring towns of Cedar Hill, Duncanville, and Lancaster.

As one of the top Texas electricity companies, we provide you with the highest level of energy service, easy-to-use tools to help you manage your account, and a wide range of electric plans.
