Founded in 2005, Stream Energy offers electricity and natural gas supply offers in seven states. The company also offers green energy.
Fixed and variable rate plans are on offer with Stream Energy, and you can also add up to 100% renewable energy to your fixed rate plan.
Fixed rate plans are your best deal, depending on the length of the contract and whether you are a natural gas or electricity customer.
|Contract lengths||Cancellation fee|
|9, 12, or 24 months||Ranges from $75 to $250 depending on your plan & location|
12 month electricity plans are available with 100% renewable energy delivered to your home.
Variable rates for electricity and natural gas change each month, and are not regulated by your state government. There are also one month introductory rate plans with Stream Energy, where the first month has an attractive rate, and the following months are variable.
Some customers are attracted by the fact that there are no contracts or cancellation fees for variable or first month introductory rate plans. However, variable rate plans are subject to rise more than your local utility.
Customers can choose a fixed rate electricity plan with 100% renewable energy, or they can supplement a normal plan with a Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) subscription.
Green energy plans are offered in fixed rates, with a mixture of wind, hydro, solar, and other renewable sources. Availability depends on your location. Renewable energy is favored because it leaves virtually no carbon footprint in electricity generation. It is also cheaper for consumers over the long-term, since it reduces reliance on limited and expensive natural resources.
Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) on the other hand, do not involve receiving renewable energy directly in your home. Instead RECs support the development of new green energy initiatives in the United States, and help to pay for green energy generation. In addition to traditional energy plans, Stream Energy offers REC subscriptions for $19.95 a month. REC plans automatically renew each month.
Stream Energy offers both electricity and natural gas service.
