Major Energy Partners With Ring to Create Safer Neighborhoods and Energy Rate Stability

Major Energy to Bundle Ring Video Doorbells With Gas and Electricity Service

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 19, 2016) - Licensed energy supply company Major Energy today announced it will offer Ring Video Doorbells (a $199 value) at no cost to its customers when they sign up for energy service.

Major Energy was drawn to the Ring solution because both companies have a mutual interest in safer communities. Ring provides customers with an award-winning smart video doorbell that puts the security of their home into the palm of their hands. Major Energy plans to offer a FREE Ring Video Doorbell bundled with an aggressive gas and electricity plan to new customers within its footprint using a multitude of marketing verticals.

This unique home protection bundle will allow Major Energy customers to secure price protection on the best fixed rates for gas and electricity while offering a new level of home security. Customers will be notified via their smartphones when someone is on their property and be able to see and speak with visitors at their front door even when they are not home. Details on the home protection bundle are available online at: www.majorenergy.com/ring.

"Changing the status-quo between what consumers are used to getting out of their energy companies and what they should be getting is at the forefront of everything we do," says Dan Alper, Major Energy Chief Executive Officer. "Offering Ring Video Doorbells further aligns us with the communities that we are first powering and then protecting."

"At Ring, it is our mission to reduce crime in neighborhoods. We're excited that Major Energy shares Ring's interest in community safety and are pleased that this deal will accelerate our ability to achieve that mission in Major Energy's markets," adds Jamie Siminoff, founder and Chief Inventor of Ring, which has the largest line of smart, outdoor security products available on the market today.

The self-installed Ring Video Doorbell works on every home with or without a doorbell. It connects to the home's Wi-Fi network and sends real-time notifications to a smart phone or tablet when someone is at the door. Using the free Ring app, which is available for iOS, Android, and Windows 10 devices, customers can see an HD video stream of whoever is at their front door and speak to them using two-way audio. Ring Video Doorbell can alert customers when someone presses the button on the doorbell or when motion is detected. Ring Doorbells operate on battery power or can be powered through the home's existing doorbell wiring.

With Major Energy, customers no longer have to worry about their natural gas or electricity bills fluctuating on a monthly basis. Major Energy offers price protection plans with rates that are guaranteed for two years, providing peace of mind even when the energy market is volatile. Major Energy supplies energy to "The World's Most Famous Arena," Madison Square Garden, and is the Official Energy Partner of Madison Square Garden, the New York Rangers, New York Knicks and New York Yankees.
