Reliant Energy kicks off ‘Beat the Heat’ Summer Program

Reliant continues its dedication to the well-being of its customers and local communities by offering several summer assistance programs, including Reliant Beat the Heat Centers in public locations throughout Houston, Dallas, and Corpus Christi. Since 2005, Reliant has contributed more than $10 million through its CARE energy assistance program to help Texans manage summer electricity costs. Reliant will sponsor a cooling center at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center and at the West Dallas Multipurpose Center starting June 1, 2018.

Participants will be allowed to “beat the heat” in an air-conditioned building during business and high-heat hours through September. In addition to an air-conditioned space, the Center will offer bottled water, snacks, games, and activities, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

A press conference will be held on Friday, June 1, 2018, from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM to kick off the summer program. Special guests include Bill Clayton, Vice President of Customer Care for Reliant, and Dallas Councilman Kevin Felder.

This event is sponsored by the City of Dallas and Reliant. For more information, please contact (214) 670-8418 or visit
