HOUSTON (AP) - Reliant Stadium, the surrounding park and all of the facilities in it are being rebranded.

Governing board of the Harris County Sports and Convention Corp., which owns the complex, voted Wednesday to rename the Reliant complex after the Texas-based electric retailer’s parent company, NRG Energy.

Reliant Stadium will become NRG Stadium, home of the NFL’s Houston Texans. The surrounding Reliant Park becomes NRG Park, and all of the other Reliant-branded facilities will be rebranded NRG.

NRG has a presence in the Northeast and West, and it says the change would help it create a national brand.

Reliant bought the naming rights to the complex in 2000 for $300 million in a 32-year agreement.
