"Once again, Stream Energy is pleased to be involved in an organization which addresses electric service interests and issues," said Darrin Pfannenstiel, Stream Energy's General & Regulatory Counsel. "Congratulations to all the 2009 IREP Segment Representatives," he added.

Stream Energy

Since being licensed as a Retail Electric Provider by the Public Utilities Commission in early 2005, privately held Stream Energy has grown rapidly into one of the largest participants in the Texas deregulated electricity market, with hundreds of thousands of residential customers. Earlier this year, Stream Energy expanded its operations into Georgia where the company provides natural gas for customers in Atlanta and a wide variety of cities throughout the state. Stream Energy's success is attributable to a full-service approach to customer relationships, supported by a customer-advantageous pricing model and the company's network marketing subsidiary, Ignite.

Ignite was founded in 2004 to handle marketing of energy for Stream Energy. When Stream Energy was licensed in 2005 as a Retail Electric Provider in Texas, Ignite began developing a network of independent associates to market electricity directly to the families, friends and individuals they know. Ignite's multi-level marketing strategy was created in order to provide personal service for customers and to help customers better understand the benefits of energy deregulation.
