SOUTH NORWALK, Conn., March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- North American Power, the energy company that has saved its customers millions of dollars on their electric bills while greening the power grid, has introduced service to customers of Commonwealth Edison (ComEd). North American Power's service offers residents and small businesses access to renewable energy that gives back to charity and delivers the power to earn each time a customer flips the switch through the company's powerful customer referral model.
Over 200,000 Illinois residents have already made the switch to a retail electricity supplier* with a 6.5% growth rate in ComEd alone in 2011; yet many remain confused about electric choice.
"As we enter the Illinois market, part of our goal is to educate consumers about the benefits of switching from the utility," says North American Power CEO Kerry Breitbart. "Customers can choose their cable company and their cell phone provider while customizing a benefits package that works for their lifestyle – why should their electricity be any different?"
By visiting napower.com (www.napower.com), ComEd customers can learn about their energy options and benefit from a rate that offers significant savings over the utility. ComEd continues to deliver the electricity, bill customers, and handle customer service and repairs, with customers benefitting from a reduced energy supply rate from North American Power. Every customer of North American Power automatically upgrades to 25% renewable energy and has the option to upgrade to 100% renewable energy. A switch to North American Power also allows customers to designate a worthwhile charity for North American Power to support each month at the company's expense via the one-for-one philanthropic initiative Mission to Millions (www.napower.com/m2m).
Beyond the benefits of increasing access to renewable, homegrown energy and giving back to deserving charities, North American Power is creating sustainable income opportunities for customers that share its products via its customer referral program. The company pays cash bonuses for referrals on an upfront and monthly basis for every customer that activates an account based on a fellow customer's recommendation.
