Stream Energy has made waves throughout the energy industry as one of the first companies that can offer rural and out-of-the-way residents the opportunity to elect to consume green energy. The company, which is the first multi-level distributor of energy in the United States, has proven over the last 15 years that people will often choose clean forms of energy, even if it means they have to use a little less.
Prior to the inception of Stream Energy, many consumers simply had no choice as to where their energy was generated and how. With the company’s highly innovate distribution network, Stream Energy is able to offer virtually anyone in the seven states where it currently operates the chance to use 100 percent clean-technology energy. The sources may include solar, wind and hydroelectric power, allowing customers to cut back of Earth-poisoning power sources, like coal.
It is these revolutionary breakthroughs in the energy industry that have given Stream Energy nationwide recognition. But throughout the Dallas, Texas, area, the company is known for another kind of change-inducing activity. Throughout the company’s hometown, Stream Energy has gained attention for its many acts of charity. The company has been a crucial supporter of a local charity called Hope Supplies Co. This charity helps homeless children get the school supplies, food and toys that they need to have as relatively normal a childhood as possible.
Stream Energy began underwriting special trips for the charity’s kids. Every week in the summer, Stream funds trips to local amusement parks, water parks and other entertainment venues for the city’s most vulnerable children. For many of these kids, the trips are the first time in their lives that they have been able to enjoy an afternoon of fun at a commercial theme park.
Stream has also been heavily involved in disaster relief in Dallas and around the state of Texas. After a 2016 outbreak of severe, tornado-producing thunderstorms, Stream raised over $100,000 for residents of a town that had been flattened by tornadoes. Stream employees also donated thousands of hours of their own time in helping Houston-area residents recover in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
