Finding electricity in Friendswood

family looking at laptop in kitchen

In 1962, Friendswood, once a predominantly Quaker community, saw explosive growth when the space program was established in nearby Houston. Starting in the 1970s, Friendswood’s population began doubling on a regular basis—with people from all over the nation and the world migrating to the town.

Today, over 40,000 people are residents of this formerly quiet farming community, including at least a dozen astronauts.

Friendswood is a short drive from Galveston as well as downtown Houston. It’s an ideal location to enjoy all that the Texas Gulf Coast has to offer.

It’s just 23 miles to the Houston Children’s Museum, 15 miles from Friendswood to the Kemah boardwalk, and 11 miles to a 2,500-acre nature center that’s the largest urban wilderness preserve in the country.

Annual Friendswood events include youth fishing tournaments, concerts and movies in the park—plus space-themed events like the Apollo 11 celebration.

Whether you’re new to town or a long-time member of the Friendswood community, Reliant is here to help you find the right electricity plans and prices for your specific needs.

As one of the top Texas electric service providers, we take pride in providing 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.
