  • Each link will redirect you to a company review that I wrote about the company. I am not affiliated with any of these companies, but I have spent several hours researching each MLM energy company to learn about their products and services.

    Many people can benefit from the de-regulation of the utility industry. This allows customers to compare energy prices, shop around and potentially save money. Remember, competition is a good thing. With increased competition, prices come down and the consumer benefits. MLM energy companies are good for consumers. If nothing else, they keep the larger utility companies honest and competitive.

    If the energy industry is de-regulated in your state, you should shop around to find out what your options are. You might be pleasantly surprised to find out that you can save money by becoming a customer or distributor with one of the MLM energy companies, such as Ambit, ACN or Ignite.

    Whether you decide to pursue the business opportunity or not, you could still potentially save money on your utility bill. And if you to become a distributor with one of the MLM energy companies, you can earn additional income, or replace your full-time income.
