One of Texas’ largest electricity providers Reliant has announced a preferred partner agreement with Google. The new collaboration will allow the company to offer new electricity plans that have the ability to pair with a range of smart home technologies from Google Home and Nest. Customers with the provider can use the latest devices as part of their plan, including a new set of voice commands using Google Assistant.

“We are intent on bringing convenient solutions to our fellow Texans,” said Elizabeth Killinger, president of Reliant and NRG Retail. “By joining forces with home technology leaders like Google and Nest that share our passion for innovation and customer experience, we are delivering simple, proven, energy-saving and home security technology to even more consumers across the state.”

Reliant was the first retail electricity provider in Texas to offer Nest products to its customers when Nest launched in 2010. Fast forward eight years, Reliant has continued to be an innovative pioneer by bringing customers a variety of offers that include tools that help customers save money and better manage their energy use.
