We’re proud to be part of the Waco community

Reliant employees volunteering in their community

Waco is located along the banks of the Brazos River and was once part of the Chisolm Trail. Waco remained a small frontier town until the Waco Suspension Bridge was built in the late 1800s. The Suspension Bridge was the longest single-span suspension bridge west of the Mississippi; and once it was completed, Waco grew to become a hub for cotton and cattle in Central Texas.

In addition to the Suspension Bridge, the Riverwalk and several museums—including one dedicated to the Texas Rangers—Waco offers plenty of opportunities to explore Texas history.

Reliant is proud to bring positive energy, working to cultivate the communities where our customers live and work. We partner with more than 150 charities and organizations across Texas, including in McLennan county and in Waco.

In Waco and Central Texas, we’ve joined forces with the Waco Chamber of Commerce, Cameron Park Zoo, the American Red Cross and the American Diabetes Association.

We also partner with Earth Share of Texas, a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation that represents and supports America’s most respected environmental and conservation groups, including 38 local and statewide organizations.

In addition, the Community Assistance from Reliant Energy (CARE) program works with nonprofit social service agencies in the area to provide extra funds to Reliant customers who qualify for assistance with their electricity supply and bills.
