I have been here at Stream Energy and Ignite from the start: and I really cannot recall a time when it seemed that both of the Ignite and Stream Energy machines were humming along as smoothly the present. At every Business Presentation or group session that I attend, I encounter wave after wave of enthusiastic Igniters – a legion of Happy Warriors who understand the power of our business model and the opportunities that can be wielded as a result thereof.
It is no stretch of the imagination to say that the near-universal feedback that we have received from a legion of Igniters has been that Ignition 2013 was probably THE most well-orchestrated, informationally-rich and motivating corporate convocation in our history. Resultantly, the Ignite Army rocketed out of Dallas to seize the battlefields of our various service areas with a vengeance.
With new offerings such as the new Business Presentation, Ignite eSuite and Virtual Assistant, you now have the best business tools in the industry that you can use to explode your business. Here’s some of the things that I have been hearing:
- “One of my Associates simply pointed five prospects to the new online Business Presentation without being there to explain the material. But, after looking at this new video alone, each of these five prospects signed up as Ignite Associates. That’s the ultimate power of this new tool, Rob – your business can grow itself and YOU’RE NOT EVEN THERE!”
- “When I am prospecting a new Associate, without much explanation or trying to overcome any objections, I point them online to the new Your Best Friend’s Energy Company video. Every prospect that has taken the four minutes necessary to watch this production has immediately wanted to know more about Ignite and the opportunity. This new video is the best door-opener that you could ever imagine.”
So if you wonder as to why I am so pumped at present, that type of input should give you a flavor!
We are once again in the prime of our business effectiveness, Gang. Our energy rates are better than or competitive to the local incumbent in every service area in which we do business – and we will be expanding our reach in significant fashion throughout the Northeast over the coming months.
The Stream Energy/Ignite offensive is in full gear: and I see no reasons now foreseeable as to why our tremendous momentum should not continue to build throughout the remainder of this year. More importantly, the Ignite Opportunity has never made more sense. And there has frankly NEVER been a better time to be doing your Ignite business.
GET THE HECK OUTTA OUR WAY.
We’re on the move, People – and we ARE NOT slowing down. Do not allow yourself to get left behind!
I will see you on the Road during the rest of March and April!

It’s no secret among the Stream Energy employee family that I was a linebacker during my college playing years. But I have to confess that there is one aspect of the offensive side of the ball that I have a weakness for, and that’s the two-minute drill.
The two-minute drill: that time of the game when the offense has to make some pretty dramatic things happen in a short amount of time to win.
With the clock ticking down on 2012, Stream Energy is hitting its “two-minute drill” and we’re going for the win in a huge way. This is a historic time for us, as we’ve officially launched several service areas in the Northeast at the same time.
First, we rolled out natural gas service in the PECO area of Pennsylvania. This in itself is big news, as there are 453,000 eligible gas customers in the PECO footprint.
But to make sure we steamroll 2012 on our way to the end zone, we’re also exploding into the NYSEG and RG&E areas of New York. Together they combine for roughly 1.6 million potential new Stream Energy customer meters.
And we’re still not done, as we have the NatGrid service area of New York (with over 2 million eligible customer meters) hitting the field in mid-December.
As John Madden would say, “Boom!”
These areas represent enormous opportunities for growth for our firm and our Ignite Associates, and they come to life through the combined efforts of many of our team mates working together. I am so proud to be a part of this group.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: it’s not how you start; it’s how you finish.

It hardly seems that it was only two years ago that we gathered with much fanfare in Houston for the purpose of launching Stream Energy’s expansion into the Northeast.
It was exciting to watch the faces of the thousands assembled in the George Brown Convention Center as we announced that our point of attack for this leap from our preceding Texas and Georgia markets would be the state of Pennsylvania, which had recently re-deregulated its markets.
As we celebrate this two-year anniversary of the Pennsylvania launch, we can look back and see what this event has meant to Stream Energy and Ignite.
Our Pennsylvania market entry was designed as the beachhead for a continuing and evolving invasion of the Northeast, allowing our ready addition of adjoining markets. And looking back to our ensuing addition of Maryland and New Jersey, I am sure that our field leadership now understands the decided and key advantage of geographic proximity in terms of projecting our organizational strength to these new jurisdictions.
Rapidly following from that October 2010 launch event, Stream Energy has grown into the largest independent energy retailer in Pennsylvania and is making terrific strides in building field leadership in New Jersey and Maryland. But having consolidated these initial gains, now is the time for Stream Energy and Ignite to again extend its message of hope and consumer choice to yet another key market in this region.
During the last two years, we’ve grown our customer base dramatically and have added millions of potential customers. We have dramatically changed the lives of many of our Igniters – both those of our longstanding Texas and Georgia leaderships, but also of the thousands of associates in the Northeast that had never even heard of our cause until the preceding two years.
With the introduction of natural gas service to our Northeast service areas and the announcement of two new state expansion initiatives prior to Ignition 2013, during the present time frame, we will have added TENS OF MILLIONS OF POTENTIAL NEW CUSTOMERS to our core constituency.
And indeed: over the six months between our mid-summer Power Surge event in Atlantic City and Ignition 2013 in Dallas, Stream Energy will have almost TRIPLED the number of switchable meters to the pool available for our Ignite associates.
As an Ignite Associate, what do these events mean to you?
These developments extend our promise of MORE: more jurisdictions, more Ignite Associates, more new downlines, more customers, more opportunity — and of course, more Monthly Residual Income.
So just think of where we’ll be two years from now, Gang. As well as the future that you and your Ignite teams can build for yourselves.
As I prepare for yet another East Coast road trip next week — ending at our Ignite Academy event in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania — know that we are ready for the next step in our continuing expansion effort.
The time is right. We are ready.

- Associates can only SHARE, but not publish, the 4-minute Clean Nation video on YouTube. You may not use the video to advertise for RECs.
- Upon the launch of Clean Nation, every potential Renewable Energy Partner (REP) must have a valid Social Security Number to become a member.
