It’s solar made simple
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.
Zero long-term commitment
These days, we understand that things are always changing. So, if for any reason, you’d like to end your participation in the Make It Solar program, you can leave at any time without penalty.2
Your impact is easy to see
When you Make It Solar, it’s simple to keep tabs on the important difference you’re making. Log in to your online Reliant account and see how you help reduce carbon emissions – per week, per month and since you joined the program.
