    couple reviewing bills together

    If you love the coastal scene, then Galveston is your kind of town. Just about 50 miles from Houston, Galveston is a historic Texas Gulf Coast beach town with a laid-back ambience. The Gulf waters offer paddle boating, sailing, sport fishing, dolphin watching, kayaking, biking, and birding.

    From Bolivar to Jamaica Beach, seawall to bayside—Galveston offers an up-close view of nature at its finest. Over 6 million tourists come to Galveston each year to enjoy all the area attractions, including a sandcastle competition, art festivals, a shrimp festival, cook-offs, restaurants and nightlife.

    This historic Texas beach town has an impressive collection of Victorian architecture, landmarks and grand mansions, many of which are on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Galveston has over 200 square miles of attractions including 32 miles of magnificent beaches, towering oleanders and a 10-mile seawall lining that’s the world’s longest continuous sidewalk—also known locally as “the world's skinniest park.”

    Whether you're in Baytown, Galveston or Kemah, Reliant Energy is here to help you find the right energy plan and electricity prices for your 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.
