Reliant Energy 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 $8 million through its CARE energy assistance program to help Texans manage summer electricity costs.
Reliant Energy will sponsor a cooling center at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center and at the West Dallas Multipurpose Center starting June 1, 2015. 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. The program will take place Monday through Friday, from 9:00AM to 4:00PM.
A press conference will be held on Wednesday, May 27, 2015 from 10:30AM to 12:00PM at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center to kick off the Beat the Heat program.
