    Your plan stays the same

    When you Make It Solar, nothing changes about your electricity plan or the way power gets to your home. No rooftop panels or devices are needed. The electricity you use supports the development of sustainable solar energy projects in Texas and across the nation.

    Day or night, rain or shine, it’s always sunny

    Since you’re still receiving power as you always have, the weather or time of day makes no difference. You’re still supporting solar 24 x 7, cloudy or clear. And with Make It Solar, the forecast calls for a cleaner, brighter future.

    We help you do your part

    Through the Make It Solar program, Reliant will match solar renewable energy certificates (RECs) equivalent to your electricity usage. These RECs signify that renewable energy has been generated and sent to the electric grid equal to your usage.
