Does no one know that many of the subsidiary energy companies buy their energy through Reliant. Yes, they may (an are) cheaper because Reliant sells to them at wholesale prices, but they are more expensive than they would have been without Reliant having to recoup some of their money.

BTW, I left Reliant years ago.......I've been with Stream since.......much cheaper........but still in the Reliant sales "network"

Only areas serviced by Centerpoint and Oncor are deregulated (basically the Metro areas of Houston and Dallas/FT Worth.). Other parts are Texas are not......and that is a GOOD thing for those areas.

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.
