Discount Reliant Electricity Rates

You may think energy rates are the same across the board, after all it’s just electricity, right? The truth of the matter is that the Texas electricity grid was built by the regulated monopoly providers at the time, and suited to fit their needs. The placement of generators used made sense for them at the time, but led to increases in energy prices. Since deregulation in 2002, providers like Reliant Energy (as well as others) popped up to offer electricity based on the part of the grid you will be pulling from.
