NRG Energy Inc, headquartered in Houston, Texas, with operations in all 50 states as well as Canada under a family of branding names has announced that behind ERCOT, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, it will be transitioning to a new combined company name and brand called NRG.
Beginning in late April 2022, prospective and current business customers looking for supply agreements through Reliant, Direct Energy Business, Cirro Energy, and Green Mountain Energy will no longer see options under these names and will instead see the new NRG brand.
What do I need to do if my business is in a current supply agreement with Reliant, Direct Energy Business, Cirro Energy or Green Mountain in Texas?
Nothing. We may experience a transition of current customers under their family of names into the new name, however there has not been an announcement yet on when or if that may occur.
How does this impact current Reliant, Direct Energy Business, Cirro Energy or Green Mountain business customers in Texas?
The only impact is from a branding perspective. Reliant, Direct Energy Business, Cirro Energy and Green Mountain are going to be operating under the brand name NRG effective May 1, 2022.
Current customer’s invoices will still reflect the supplier you selected in your supply agreement.
What if my supplier is Reliant, Direct Energy Business, Cirro Energy or Green Mountain but, my service is outside of Texas / ERCOT?
NRG brands outside of ERCOT, such as PJM, Pennsylvania Jersey Maryland RTO, Regional Transmission Organization, and MISO, Midcontinent Independent System Operator, are not being transitioned under the NRG brand on May 1, 2022. These customers will be transitioned differently. As we obtain further details on the NRG brand transition behind PJM & MISO, we will provide you with those details.
