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 month to see how your usage varies on 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!
