Reliant has resources to help you shop for electricity

If you're shopping for a new plan, the first step is learning how to calculate your monthly usage. See steps on how to calculate your monthly usage below.

Step 1

If you're shopping for a new plan at your current home or apartment, start by gathering your usage for the past 12 months. You can usually find your usage on your paper bill, via email if you have paperless billing or by viewing your account usage history from your current provider.

Step 2

Take note of your highest and lowest months to see how your usage varies in low and peak seasons.

Step 3

Next, calculate your average by adding up your usage for all 12 months, then divide by 12.

Step 4:

Now that you have an idea of what your monthly usage is, you are ready to shop for a plan that fits your usage needs.

1 Projected bill not available for prepaid customers. Must be a Reliant residential customer with a Texas service address and a smart meter. The billing and usage information provided in the Reliant Weekly Summary Email (WSE) is an estimate and includes only your electricity charges and taxes. Your monthly bill provides your official usage as determined by your local electric utility, as well as the total bill amount due. If you are on an indexed plan, you will not see cost information in your WSE, as prices are determined on the last day of each bill cycle. If you change to an incompatible plan or terminate your service with Reliant, you will no longer receive your WSE. Reliant reserves the right to discontinue the WSE without notice. You may also request to cancel your WSE by calling 1-866-872-6644.

2 Customers must have already opted in to receive alerts via text from the Contact Preferences page on the Account Management dashboard. Available only to customers with a smart meter. Message and data rates may apply. For Terms and Conditions, go to reliant.com/term.

3 If there is no previous usage in your name at the service address, or you do not have 11 months of usage at the service address, we will take the previous usage at that service address and apply your current price to calculate your average monthly amount and then subtract or add 1/12 of your deferred balance. The deferred balance amount is the cumulative difference between your monthly Average Billing amount and what you would owe if you were not signed up for Average Billing. The deferred balance amount can be found on your monthly bill. If the bill amount is positive, 1/12 will be added to your bill. If the bill amount is negative, 1/12 will be subtracted from your bill. If you’re a new Average Billing customer, the deferred balance will begin in the second month. Deferred balance must be paid in full if you cancel Average Billing or change electricity providers.
