Energy Plus Company Recognized as Rising Star in Deloitte's 2011 Greater Philadelphia Fast 50

With a 726% Growth in Revenue, the Energy Plus Company Attributes Its Success to Expansion in New Markets and a Customer Rewards Program Unlike Any Other in the Industry

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2011) - Energy Plus Company is pleased to announce its recent recognition as a "Rising Star" on Deloitte LLP's 2011 Fast 50 for the Greater Philadelphia region. The Fast 50 is a list that ranks Greater Philadelphia's fastest growing companies in the fields of clean technology, life sciences, media, technology and telecommunications.

In order to be named a Rising Star on the Fast 50, companies must have been in operation for at least three years but no more than five years. The criterion is based on the percentage of revenue growth accomplished over three years, from 2008 to 2010. Energy Plus Company saw a 726 percent growth during this time frame, making it one of the select few companies to be recognized as a Rising Star on the list. Energy Plus Company and all the other Rising Stars displayed innovation and the ability to drive remarkable revenue growth during a tough economy, according to Deloitte LLP.

Kevin Kleinschmidt, CEO of Energy Plus Company, attributes the company's extraordinary growth to its ability to branch out into new markets, as well as a unique ongoing customer rewards program and superior service offerings for business and residential customers. He also credits the hard work of dedicated employees.
