Energy Plus Officially Launches Natural Gas Service in New York State

PHILADELPHIA, July 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Energy Plus Holdings, one of the nation's fastest-growing energy companies, today announced the official launch of natural gas services in its first market, New York State, with services provided through its affiliate, Energy Plus Natural Gas. The offering compliments Energy Plus' core electricity service, which is relied upon by over 160,000 customers in seven competitive energy states, including New York, and features an ongoing rewards program that benefits each and every customer.

The majority of residents in New York - over 60 percent - are both natural gas and electricity customers. While there are already a number of competing suppliers to serve growing demand, Energy Plus is the only energy company to offer a valuable rewards program that enables customers to earn their choice of cash-back, airline miles, hotel points and other rewards, just for paying their monthly bill. What's more, Energy Plus offers a market-driven rate on natural gas that is currently up to 5 percent less than other legacy utility providers.

"We're very pleased to extend our energy offering in the state of New York. Our recent adoption rates confirm that the majority of New Yorkers prefer to switch both natural gas and electricity services to an alternative energy provider at the same time, and thousands of homes and businesses will benefit from our new, combined offering," said Kevin Kleinschmidt, President of Energy Plus. "As we continue to expand our services, reach, and customers, we'll remain focused on offering an innovative customer rewards program, superior service, and exceptional value for New York consumers."

To date, over 1,000 customers have already signed on for Energy Plus' natural gas service during a limited offer basis. The new service is now fully available in the Con Edison, National Grid (Keyspan NY and Niagara Mohawk regions), Orange & Rockland, and National Fuel Gas markets.

Energy Plus' risk-free services, which are supported by a high-touch, in-house call center, can be cancelled at any time and never include enrollment fees, monthly service fees, switching fees, or cancellation fees. Energy Plus Natural Gas LP has earned an "A" rating from the Better Business Bureau.
