Learn about our plans

Whether you want a month-to-month plan with no long-term contract or a plan that locks in a low price for a year or more, we have options for you. Some plans feature free weekends or special rewards. Find the right one for you.

Find your plan and sign up


1. Find plans in your area

Enter your ZIP code to find a list of plans available. Use your full address for even  more accurate results.


2. Select your monthly usage

Plan prices are based on average monthly usage. The price of many plans varies depending on how much electricity you use each month. To find the most accurate price you'll be paying, check a few recent electric bills to see how many kWh you use on average each month. You can also find the average utility costs by ZIP code to better estimate your bill.

On the page where the available plans are listed, look at the monthly usage selector in the upper right corner of the screen (pictured to the left). Select the amount that most closely matches what you normally use. Remember that your usage during mild temperature seasons like spring or fall will probably be lower than in summer or winter. 

3. Compare plan details

After you enter your ZIP code, you will see our featured plans for your area. You can compare prices right there, but the best way to compare plans in detail is to select the "Add to compare" checkbox to the right of the plan. Once you've selected the plans you want to compare, click the "Compare" button to the bottom left of the page. 

If you know you want month-to-month plans, longer term contracts, renewable plans or plans that include a bonus offer, you can choose to see only that type of plan by choosing the relevant type of plan from the in the upper left corner of the page. 

Some of the plan features you can compare are:

  • Monthly estimate — We calculate what you may pay each month based on usage, the price of the plan and TDSP (transmission and distribution service provider) charges. Taxes and fees are not included in the estimate.
  • Average price — The current average price of the plan. Prices on plans with a "fixed" rate type can only change to reflect regulatory changes, but the price of plans with a "variable" rate type may vary month to month.
  • Term — How long your contract with Reliant will last. You will lock in a price for the length of the term and may be subject to a cancellation fee if you end service with Reliant before your term ends.
  • Rate type — A plan may have a "fixed" rate or a "variable" rate. Fixed rates stay the same for the length of your term, and variable rates can change month-to-month. For more on rate types, read our Choosing an Electricity Plan page.
  • Bonus — This explains any special offers included with your plan, such as gift cards, free months of electricity, bill credits, charitable donations, airline miles or sports memorabilia. 
  • Early cancellation fee — The amount you will need to pay if you end your Reliant service before your contract term ends.

4. Finish up the process

Most people complete the enrollment process successfully and are able to immediately create an online profile to start managing their account. However, if we have trouble verifying your identity, you may need to supply additional documentation. Depending on your credit score, you may be required to pay a deposit before service can start.

To make sure your service is started on time, send the documentation and/or your deposit as soon as possible. If we need additional information, we will notify you by email.

For detailed instructions to help you send in any additional information, read more about our service start requirements.

Still have questions?

If you're starting service at a new location, your service can begin a minimum of two business days after you sign up. If you're switching from another provider, your service with Reliant will begin within two weeks after you sign up. Please keep in mind that you may need to satisfy certain requirements, such as paying a deposit or providing valid ID, and delays in satisfying these requirements can delay your start date.

Because several factors can affect our ability to start your service — for example, your meter may be physically inaccessible or a permit may be required — we cannot guarantee the transfer date you select. You can check the status of your transfer by logging in to your account at
