Tyler, Texas began earning its reputation as the Rose City back in 1879, when the sale of rose bushes began in the area. By the 1940s more than half of the rose bushes in America were grown near Tyler. Today there are still major rose growers in the Tyler area and the town continues to be known as the Rose Capital of America—a moniker it earned in 1933.

Roses are big attractions in Tyler, as are azaleas. Tyler boasts the nation's largest rose garden, which has over 38,000 rose bushes and throws an annual rose festival that includes a parade, concerts, wine tastings, rose shows, and a garden party. Tyler is also renowned for its 10-mile Azalea trail that draws over 100,000 people a year.

The same climate that makes Tyler ideal for roses and azaleas also makes this town the perfect place for outdoor activities of all kinds. Tyler State Park offers a 64-acre spring-fed lake and nature trails, and in the Piney Woods Section of East Texas, there are over 30 lakes to enjoy.

Plus, the town boasts an 85-acre zoo, numerous museums, a state-of-the-art planetarium, fairground events—and literally dozens of festivals and events all year long.

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

As one of the top Texas electricity companies, 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.
