BTW, I left Reliant years ago.......I've been with Stream since.......much cheaper........but still in the Reliant sales "network"
Reliant is not the utility, Centerpoint is. Reliant was broken up during deregulation (as was TXU) and split into Centerpoint and Reliant retail. Retail energy companies (including Reliant) get their energy thru Centerpoint.
