DALLAS (December 2, 2010) – Ignite, the largest network marketer of energy in America, will host a conference at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on December 4, in which a few thousand Pennsylvanians will learn how to carve out an income by marketing electricity to their neighbors in the PPL and PECO service areas. “About 2,000 people are expected to attend the all-day conference,” said Chairman Rob Snyder of Ignite’s parent company, Stream Energy.
Stream Energy announced its entry into the deregulated Pennsylvania electricity market on October 18, 2010. “We entered the market a few short weeks ago, but already we have seen a great deal of interest in the one-on-one education we provide consumers,” said Chairman Rob Snyder. “Pennsylvania deregulation appears to be a very good match for our business model of direct sales to customers,” he added.
During the conference, Ignite and Stream Energy will present a $10,000 donation to the Philadelphia-based Utility Emergency Services Fund (UESF), which has provided utility assistance to low-income residents for 27 years.
Ignite and Stream Energy are expecting to continue the momentum they have enjoyed since their establishment in the newly deregulated Texas electricity market six years ago. The approach in Texas was an astounding success, propelling Ignite and Stream Energy to almost $1 billion in annual sales and acquiring 400,000 customers in Texas and Georgia (where the firm launched natural gas service in 2008).
