Stream Energy helps build stronger communities across Dallas area

Stream Energy is quickly gaining recognition as one of the most important alternative energy firms operating in the Southwestern United States today. The company has been in existence for nearly 15 years. But it has only been recently that Stream Energy has begun receiving the attention it deserves for its revolutionary role in the promotion of green energy sources as a commercially viable means of energy provision.

As one of the first energy companies working on a multi-level-marketing paradigm, Stream Energy has been a surprise success. The highly flexible model that it offers consumers has proven to be an enormously successful means of supplying energy. Stream Energy gives customers, who may not have otherwise had the opportunity, the chance to obtain 100 percent of their energy from clean sources. The ability to allow customers in rural and other out-of-the-way areas to go with wind and solar-derived energy plans has been a strong selling point for the company, which often dumbfounds customers when it informs them that they can help save the planet while their air conditioner saves them from heat stroke.

But the company is making even bigger waves around its hometown of Dallas, Texas. It is there that Stream Energy has become one of the city’s most important drivers of charity and philanthropic giving. Stream first came on most Texas residents’ radar during the unfolding of the Hurricane Harvey disaster. The company was able to immediately donate tens of thousands of dollars to its neighbors in need in the Houston area. The company also sent an army of its own employees to the area to help in the rescue, cleanup and rebuilding efforts. When all was said and done, Stream employees had collectively donated thousands of hours of their personal time helping to rebuild the communities of their neighbors.

Stream has also been an active participant in local children’s charities. One of the most heartwarming stories is the company’s underwriting of local trips for homeless kids to zoos, waterparks and other entertainment venues. For many of these children, the Stream-sponsored junkets are the first time they have ever been able to enjoy an afternoon of carefree fun. These are just a few of the examples of Stream’s magnanimity.

Stream Energy’s Philanthropy Culminates in the Establishment of Stream Cares

Stream Energy recently announced a consolidation of its philanthropic activities by launching Stream Cares. The newly launched arm of the company will oversee the many philanthropic interests of the firm ranging from caring for the homeless, veterans, supporting communities in case of disasters, etc.

The Dallas-based Stream has gained popularity across Texas for its generosity and that of its independent associates, who form the core of the company’s business model. Unlike many modern firms that equate corporate social responsibility to writing checks, Stream Energy more than money in charitable causes. More often than not, the firm’s associates and leadership dedicate time to help the less fortunate in society.

During the infamous Hurricane Harvey, writing a $25,000 check to the American Red Cross would have been enough philanthropic gesture. Stream Energy, however, went ahead to accept donations on behalf of Red Cross, lessening pressure on the non-profit. In the aftermath of the disaster, the firm was not bothered with delayed payments to recent invoices from clients in the affected areas, allowing the communities to enjoy Stream Energy’s energy, wireless, home services, etc., undisrupted.

Stream recognizes some members of society, including the homeless and veterans, who are often neglected. The company takes it upon itself to put a smile on these classes of people. Stream has partnered with Hope Supply company to cater to the needs of the homeless while running Operation Once in a Lifetime program to assist the Dallas-area veterans and their children. Stream is delighted to lighten up faces of people who would otherwise be sad, restoring faith in humanity.

Established in 2005, Stream Energy has grown to become a national company, with a presence in seven states. Its rapid growth is attributed to a direct selling program that innovatively rewards its associates. The associates sell the firm’s services and products by word of mouth, earning salaries, bonuses, and other goodies. There is no limit on income that an associate can make for their referral services. But perhaps more attractive is the fact that associates need not invest in expensive merchandise to start earning with Stream.

George Soros Obviously Knows Energy Worldwide


George Soros is certainly a leader in the world of finance and he shares his financial view of the trending market while capturing a snapshot of today’s economic picture. As a young man, Soros left his birthplace during WWII when Nazi Germany occupied his homeland, Hungary. Alone, he fled Hungary and headed to England where he continued his education at the London School of Economics. Soon after graduation, he found it possible to venture to America where he completed his education in international finance and began to grow his wealth.

Soros didn’t become a billionaire overnight, but he continued his study of market fluctuations, the economy in every country, and the growth of countries supply and demand. He certainly didn’t become a billionaire from bad judgment calls and flaky decisions. Like an eagle, he views the entire market before making a decision. Of course, as the most recent article states, “The best way to invest like a billionaire is to, well, start with a billion dollars.” If only it were that simple. Soros didn’t start with any money, but he built his wealth from making good decisions and recording his decisive moves.

Today, the Soros Fund Management reports they dumped their shares in Chevron (CVX), Chesapeake Energy (CHK) and NRG Energy (NRG). With the energy prices so volatile this year, the last week in February will offer opportunities for the investor as many of the major players in the market will be reporting their earnings. Oil prices did surge last week after Saudi Arabia and Russia agreed on an oil production freeze in an attempt to boost the oil prices in the coming months. Unfortunately, this maneuver failed as Iran rejected the freeze and they have one-fifth of the world’s oil reserve. Iran’s revenge was to dump oil onto the global glut as a revenge tactic for the recent sanctions they received.

The oil market today leaves investors scratching their heads over “which-way-should-I-go?” The U.S. spends over one trillion dollars each year on energy, which accounts for 8.2% of the GDP. Each day the per capita energy consumption in the U.S., includes 2.5 gallons of oil, 16 pounds of coal, and 230 cubic feet of natural gas. Our residential usage of electricity is 12.1 kWh per person. The percentages listed above are an example of the usage pattern of the U.S. portion of the GDP. (Please consider peak usage times, may cause the results to fluctuate slightly.)

Goldman Sachs recently reported that when oil prices are this low for a long period, such as we are experiencing now, the pain is experienced way beyond the energy companies. It would behoove the public to review the earnings reports as they are released from the companies. Many company reports are expected to be rather gloomy.
