I know that there are a lot of people who feel that companies that are formed in the 2000s are not as stable as companies that have been around since the 1900s or even earlier. Thankfully, I am not one of those people. I know that there is something to be said about companies that have proven they have staying power, but I also know that newer companies can be just as solid if not more so. A useful reference that I referred to when I was choosing which energy company I wanted to go with helped me choose one that has only been in business since 2006.
Ambit Energy has very humble beginnings that started with a vision from the two founders. They wanted to improve on the energy business that existed already, and they were able to do this when different areas started to become deregulated. I was in one of those areas, and I have been an Ambit customer for several years now. What drew me to them was how quickly they grew. They went from being a small company working out of a warehouse to a large company serving over half a million customers in several different states.
A few of my neighbors were using Ambit already, and I talked to them about the energy company. I wanted to make sure they were completely satisfied before making the switch myself. I already knew they had low rates because that is what attracted me to them in the first place. One of my neighbors told me that they have quite a few plans so it made it easy for them to pick one out that fit their budget the best. Another neighbor told me about their excellent customer service, which happens to be a huge selling point for me. Couple that with the low prices, and I knew that I was going to become a customer too!
