Our Review

Reliant's Base Power 12 plan is an easy to understand electricity Plan. It's a 12 month plan, or one year, so it has a $150 cancellation fee. The Energy Charge is actually pretty low, definitely competitive with the current market. The only interesting thing is that it has a monthly recurring charge that changes depending on usage. If a customer uses less than 1,000 kWh a month, the charge is $9.99. If they use more than 1k kWh in a month, the base monthly charge is $0.00. Not a bad plan.
