Stream Energy, a medium-sized energy provider, is making news around the country because of their aggressive expansion all throughout the United States. The energy company was founded in August 2004 by two enthusiastic entrepreneurs who have thought that building their own energy company would somehow lower the cost of energy in Texas. The company was awarded multiple times because of their service to the people of Texas, and when news about them started to spread northwards, people from other states have been writing them to consider operating outside Texas (http://weeklyopinion.com/2017/12/stream-energy-advances-coal-market-falls/). Stream Energy had to work with several government agencies to get permission to run in other states, and after all of the documents were finalized, Stream Energy was given a go-signal to operate outside Texas.
In 2017, the company saw two new expansions – they have added Illinois and Delaware to the list of states that they service. After the addition of the two new states, the total number of states enjoying the services from Stream Energy rose to 8. Washington D.C. is also being serviced by Stream Energy, and the citizens happily expressed their gratitude to companies like Stream Energy because they create competition that would force other energy companies to lower down their prices to become profitable.
Stream Energy stated that the reason why they are aggressive in expanding their businesses northwards is that energy consumption in the cold states up north would bring more opportunities to their market. The demand for heat increases every winter, and Stream Energy has enough electricity and energy sources to power up the necessary warmth during the colder months. The people from Illinois and Delaware are happy and grateful that Stream Energy finally considered their request to operate in their home states. The people from the two states are stating that previously, the energy companies operating locally are charging too high for their consumption (ReporterExpert). Now that Stream Energy is also in the picture, the people think that other energy companies would be forced to be at least on par with what Stream Energy offers to its customers and clients.
