DALLAS, Dec. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Energy retailer Stream Energy announced today that it has expanded its New York service footprint to now include consumers residing in the National Grid service area.

With this announcement, Stream Energy is able to provide energy to 1.5 million eligible electricity customers and 545,000 eligible natural gas customers in upstate New York in cities such as Albany, Buffalo, Niagara Falls and Syracuse.

"Today's announcement deepens Stream Energy's commitment to serving consumers in New York," said Stream Energy Chairman Rob Snyder. "In November, we officially opened for business in the New York State Electric and Gas (NYSEG) and Rochester Gas and Electric (RG&E) service areas, which combined represent 1.6 million eligible customers. With the opening of the National Grid territory, we have doubled the size and scope of our New York operations and its attendant income opportunities for our Ignite sales force."

The firm's wholly owned subsidiary, Ignite, incentivizes entrepreneurs to explain the advantages of energy deregulation directly to consumers and has created a paradigm shift in how energy companies in deregulated markets attract new customers.
