If anything has changed in the past few years, it’s how Texans stay connected. With advanced technology and faster Internet speeds, we have access to almost anything, anywhere, anytime, all in the palm of our hands.
We have the ability to communicate with family and friends, buy and sell stocks, check the sports scores for favorite teams, shop for clothes and explore the world, all on the same device. All these new capabilities have created a new problem — “power anxiety” — when consumers begin to notice power on their mobile devices drops below 50 percent, and how that feeling escalates as the power level drops into the red.
Texans certainly keep busy schedules and have even busier lifestyles, and when we need more power, being tethered to an outlet or wall charger isn’t ideal (think about sitting on the floor in a less-than-optimal location) or even an option at all. It just makes sense that a power company would deliver solutions to the problem.
Power at Home, at Work, and On the Go
At Reliant, we have stepped up to deliver solutions in a big way. Our newest innovative electricity plan provides power to your home and gives you portable power technology to charge your mobile devices, wherever life takes you.
The Reliant Power on the Go plan combines a great fixed-rate plan for home electricity and, to ensure Texans stay powered on the go and while away from outlets, it includes a portable solar power kit valued at $400. The portable solar power kit is simple to use and includes a lightweight 5200mAh power pack and a power inverter to keep tablets, phones, and most laptops charged up anytime, anywhere.
The power pack’s capacity is enough to charge a phone to full up to five times. The kit also includes a durable 13-watt foldable solar panel to recharge the power pack if you’re outside in the sun, giving you the ability and freedom to be on the go for even longer.
Powering Texans’ Unique Lifestyles
The Reliant Power on the Go plan comes in handy for Texans while they’re out and about, living their days wherever they happen to be. Our new “One of a Kind” campaign celebrates the spirit of all different kinds of Texans and their own particular needs when it comes to power. From working moms and young professionals to cowboys and truck drivers, the campaign showcases different plans and services that cater to Texans from all walks of life.
Take, for example, Fluff Bake Bar owner and pastry chef Rebecca Masson, who is also known as “The Sugar Fairy” of Houston. Rebecca’s creative confectionery items have quickly become a staple in the city’s food community.
Whether Rebecca is satisfying a sweet tooth with custom-made goodies at her Midtown bakery or catering a signature dessert menu for an event, she needs power to keep her business running smoothly. As a small business owner, she relies on Reliant to provide greater insight and control over her electricity, advise her on how to be more energy efficient, and deliver convenient power solutions at home, at work, and on the go.
She juggles a busy schedule and wants to keep connected to customers, employees, and family — and Reliant offers power plans and portable power solutions to help her do just that.
The One of a Kind advertising campaign features Rebecca and several fellow Texans, including professional athletes, musicians, working parents, and more. Check them out by visiting reliant.com/oneofakind, and leave a comment below to let us know what you think.
These are a few examples of how Reliant is more than “just” an electricity company and the types of benefits we offer to every customer. We take seriously our responsibility to provide new, customer-friendly solutions that enable today’s mobile-driven world and fit every Texan’s lifestyle. After all, Texas, we are Texan too — and, just like you, totally one of a kind.
