Compared to oil heat, natural gas is less. Just look at the stats. The federal Energy Information Administration (EIA) reports that the average American homeowner will pay only about $732 to heat their home with gas this winter season (October 1 through March 31). Compare this to a whopping $2,535 for oil heat. (Ref 1)
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average consumer pays more in a year for oil than gas. (Some bioheat oil may be quite efficient but this is not widely available).
Natural Gas is less expensive than electricity to operate: Almost everywhere in the country, natural gas heat is significantly cheaper than electricity. While gas furnaces cost more to purchase than electric ones. In addition, installation is more complex due to venting requirements. This means a gas furnace requires a larger upfront investment than an electric one. If you live in a cold climate and run your heater a lot during the winter, a gas furnace can save you money over the long run. Heat by natural gas also heats faster than electricity. (Ref 2)
Those lines are property of a company that worked with the local town zoning to place their own pipes, often years ago. This is why your natural gas provider is assigned by your address. This provider owns and maintains the pipes under the street and up to your meter.
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Order No. 636, from 1992, explains the final steps towards unbundling by making pipeline unbundling a requirement. The Order states that pipelines must separate their transportation and sales services. In this way all pipeline customers have a choice in selecting their gas sales, transportation, and storage services from any provider, in any quantity.
Fortunately, FERC Order 636 fosters competition in the natural gas industry. It ensures that all natural gas suppliers compete for gas purchasers on equal footing. The goals are to enhance competition in the natural gas industry and to ensure adequate and reliable service. (Ref 3)

Ambit Energy recently launched three new residential electricity plans in Texas. One is the Free & Clear Nights 12.
This new plan features 100% wind energy, so if renewable energy is important to you, this is definitely a plan to consider. The free nights plan is not yet (as of October 2017) available in all Texas delivery territories.
So, how do the free nights work? It’s pretty simple (be sure to scroll down to watch the video).
Basically, you are not charged for the energy rate or the local TDU (such as Oncor) delivery charges from the hours of 9:00 p.m. – 5:59 a.m. But you are charged during the hours of 6:00 a.m. – 8:59 p.m. All hours of usage, however, are 100% wind energy. The Free & Clear Nights 12 plan does require a smart meter.
The average rate per kWh based on kWh usage ranges as follows:
14.6 cents/kWh for usage around 500 kWh
13.1/kWh for usage around 1,000 kWh
12.3/kWh for usage around 2,000 kWh
Keep in mind these average rates are not different prices. They are simply showing what the average rate calculates out to be once you factor in any base charges, the energy charge rate and the delivery charges calculated at the three different kWh usage examples.
It is estimated that most Texas residential customers use 32 percent of their daily electricity at night (hours of 9:00 p.m. – 5:59 a.m.). However, if know that you use a significantly larger percentage of your electricity at night, then this plan is likely a great fit for you.
As displayed in the Electric Facts Label, which shows all the details and calculations for the Ambit Energy Free & Clear Nights 12 plan, this is a 12-month contract plan. However, with Ambit’s three new featured plans comes a 60-day guarantee. If you do not like the plan you select, you can switch to another plan at no cost within 60 days of your enrollment.

Ambit Energy announced this weekend at its annual convention that the Texas-based company will expand into Canada in 2017. Nov. 1 is the date set for the launch of Ambit’s third country.
The retail electricity and gas provider launched in Japan in the summer of 2017 – the company’s first international expansion.
Alberta, Canada, will be the first territory. Ambit Energy will offer electricity to residential and small commercial to a potential 224,000 customers in the ATCO Electric service territory. Natural gas will be serviced to a potential 1.1 million customers in the ATCO Gas service territory.
Ambit consultants can begin enrolling customers in these areas on November 1. Currently, Ambit services 16 states plus Washington D.C. in the U.S.
Below is a map of the ATCO Electric territory.
Ambit Energy has released its income opportunity video as part of its Japanese business presentation. The pre-launch enrollment period will begin the morning of May 24 – the first day Japanese citizens can enroll as Ambit Energy consultants.
Japanese citizens can watch the opportunity video now to see how to earn income in the way of bonuses and on-going residual income. You can watch the Ambit Energy Japan Income Opportunity Video here. There is an English subtitle option.
Similar to the U.S. income compensation plan, Consultants will be able to earn bonuses when they gather their first few customers and when they help other consultants on their team gather their first customers. On-going residual income is also generated on all customers through seven levels in a Consultant’s organization. As Consultants promote to higher levels, they can begin earning additional leadership bonuses on top of the regular residual income.
See the gallery bellow for a preview of the video presentation.
Ambit Energy’s first business opportunity presentations in Japan will take place the week of May 8. Pre-launch is still scheduled to begin the morning of May 24 (Japan time), which is the first day that Japanese citizens can sign up as Ambit Energy Consultants.
Ambit’s Co-Founders, CEO Jere Thompson and CMO Chris Chambless will host the first business presentations in Tokyo and Osaka. See this Ambit Energy Japan Launch page for more information on the Japan territories that Ambit will offer electricity service in.

This expansion marks the first international territory for the 10-year-old Dallas-based company. Currently, Ambit Energy serves customers in 16 states plus Washington, D.C. Here are the utility territories in Japan that Ambit will service including the potential customers and potential annual revenue:
|Utility Area||Organization||Potential Customers||Annual Revenue Opportunity (USD)|
That’s 80 million potential customers and more than $70 billion in potential annual revenue. These utility territories do not include Hokkaido or Okinawa.

Japan is the world’s third-largest economy, and demand for electricity is expected to rise by 22 percent. Japan is also the third-largest direct selling market in the world. The country began rolling out energy deregulation in April 2016 in hopes to increase competition and reduce electricity costs.
Pre-enrollment for the first Ambit Energy Consultants in Japan is scheduled to begin the morning of May 24 (Japan time). The official launch and the first official customer are scheduled to go active around mid-July.
The thing about a success system is that you need to plug into it to actually have success. And Ambit Energy certainly has a successful four-part system for consultants to plug into that created a $1.4 billion company in record time.
A proven system is what makes McDonald’s and every other national fast-food chain successful. It’s certainly not the terrific burgers.
It’s the reason why, no matter what McDonald’s you want into, the fries are in the same place, the drink machine is in the same place, and pretty much the entire place is run the exact same way. Because it works.
Want to know the exact system that built Ambit Energy to one of the most successful companies in American history without traditional advertising models? Want to learn exactly how to do it? Then just keep reading.
To put it as simple as possible, Ambit Energy Consultants are professional inviters.
Consultants invite people to simple take a look at the business opportunity. This is so huge and something so simple that many people miss.
Consultants do not sell Ambit Energy. They do not convince people to join. They invite.
This takes so much pressure off, because anyone can invite. There are three main ways consultants can invite people to check out the business: an online video (click here to see), the Success from Home magazine or a live/local business presentation.
In all three of these ways, the consultant still does not have to actually do the presenting. Just the inviting.
Now, I just said the consultant does not have to do the presenting. And that still stands.
The online opportunity video (only about 15 minutes) is a terrific tool to do the presenting for you. So is a live business presentation. Of course, a consultant CAN do the presentation if they want to. But even if you are in a one-on-one situation, you can always just show the video.
The best way to set up a presentation is to ask someone if they are open to taking a look and then ask what specific time they can look at the presentation.
EXPERT TIP: Always set a specific time. (Click here for more tips on network marketing invitation).
This also works the same for inviting to live business presentations. Let the presentation do the presenting. Do not try to verbally explain the presentation. Trying to verbally explain a very visual presentation isn’t going to go well.
This is the most missed part of the Ambit Energy business system, but it’s so critical that it’s usually the one step that most greatly affects someone’s decision to join the business.
Everyone who takes a look at the Ambit Energy business opportunity will fall into one of three categories: In, Out, Maybe.
Most people typically fall into the Maybe category. They’re on the fence. This usually means they have some questions or issues that need addressed. This is where the validation comes in.
EXPERT TIP: Use a team leader or a more experienced consultant to answer questions and address concerns. This can be done on a three-way call and it shows that you have a team in place to help.
A validation is not for convincing someone to join the Ambit Energy business. It’s to make sure the person gets their questions answered and has all the information they need to make a decision.
Ask for a decision!
Doing parts 1-3 won’t matter if consultants don’t actually ask for a decision. Once all their questions are answered, that’s the time to ask where they are on a scale of 1-10.
A 1 means it’s not for them and they are definitely out. In this case, consultants see if they can get them as a customer. If they are a 9 or 10, then they are ready to get started.
EXPERT TIP: Don’t be addicted to the outcome. If someone doesn’t see the Ambit Energy opportunity as a fit for them, that’s fine.
