Ambit Energy to Lead energy deregulation charge into 24 new markets in 2012, offers income opportunity as well as savings

Success of deregulation in Texas, New York, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania sees industry shake-up continue, with Ambit Energy at the forefront

Westfield, NY, December 27, 2011 - How much are your energy bills? More expensive than ever, despite using less than normal? Then it’s time to change over to one of the fastest growing retail energy providers in the country - Ambit Energy. Already a huge success in Texas, New York, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, Ambit will now be bringing their expertise and cost-effective energy to 24 new markets this coming year. Better still, they’re inviting you to join in their success.

This is an opportunity to earn money from your own home based business even as you save on your energy costs, it is one of the things that sets Ambit Energy apart from its competitors. Yet as much as this is a welcome bonus, the real benefits that the company offers are the savings on your energy bill. In fact, by changing to Ambit, you could save as much as 20% on your usual costs. And the good news is that it doesn’t cost you a penny to change – indeed, you won’t even notice any difference.

Deregulation isn’t new, it’s been happening in the phone and airline industry for years. Energy deregulation means choice.  You are now able to choose who you purchase your natural gas or electricity from. Before energy deregulation, you were forced to buy your energy from the local utility company; the rates were regulated; and you had no control over pricing.

Now this success comes to 24 new markets in 2012, and Ambit Energy is right at the forefront. With the experience of being part of the Texas and California deregulation industry, Ambit can offer you savings of literally hundreds of dollars a year on your energy bill. With the money you save, you can treat yourself to that holiday you wanted, or the new basement makeover you’ve been putting off.

Better still, why not use it to become part of Ambit Energy’s success? By becoming an independent consultant with them, Ambit gives you the potential to unlimited earnings. It’s a process that’s been a huge success for the company so far, and has seen consultants in all six states earn six-figure salaries. Take the jump today – join Ambit Energy and save your way to success.
