Electrical Companies ... so many choices.....Stream Electrical....

I have reviewed a lot of electric companies and the one I chose to do business with is Stream Electrical,

Please review this link for details: Stream Opportunities

And here is why:

1) They have a great all in inclusive rate, no other extra charges, AND they reward customer LOYALTY by giving you a:
25% discount for 5 referrals,
50% discount for 10 referrals,
100% discount for 15 referrals, who sign up with Stream.
Therefore, if you are willing to do the work by getting referrals, your electric bill will be discounted! Yes they are not the cheapest rate, but they have the best practice business package for customer LOYALTY that I have seen from an electric provider.

2) Stream is also offering Mobile Phone billing, much like the electrical service provider process. The 2 major Cell Phone providers are ATT and Sprint through which Stream offers billing packages through them at a substantial savings considering most families have 3 or more cell phones per billing provider. See the same link above for more info.

3) And finally, Stream offers the opportunity to become a Stream Rep and earn part time income, by helping people sign up for these 2 services. You can choose to just sign up for their electrical plan only, or participate in as many of the other program as one wishes. Contact me for more details.
