The desire for clean air continues to be on the forefront of leaders and citizens around the world. This continued interest has led environmental agencies to enact strict regulations on coal plants. The pressure by environmentalists on coal producers to clean up emissions or shut down plants has proven to be successful.
Companies that specialize in clean, renewable energy, like Stream Energy, are gaining momentum in the energy industry. Dallas-based Stream Energy opened its doors in 2005 as a retail energy provider using the direct sales model to sell natural gas and renewable energy products. With the continued environmental pressure on the coal industry, Stream Energy has continued to grow and is now the most significant direct-selling company in the global energy market.
Coal, for many years, was the leader in the energy industry for the United States. The industry, plagued with dangerous mining practices and environmental pollution concerns has continued to decline. Cheaper, cleaner energy products such as wind, solar power, and natural gas are continuing to grow and come to the forefront of the energy sector.
The continued advancements in technology, such as hydraulic fracturing, have allowed energy companies to supply customers with natural gas at more affordable prices than a decade ago. Mass production of solar panels in China and improved equipment in the wind energy sector have improved the costs to consumers. The expenses of clean, renewable energy have significantly decreased the United States coal consumption, but coal continues to be a significant power source in developing countries.

Companies in the clean energy sector that hire and train previous employees in the coal industry may receive tax breaks and subsidies. Stream has plans to expand services in the retail energy market, such as competitive wireless plans, digital voice call plans for the home, and protective services for car and health care.
Today, Stream sells electric and gas services in seven states and Washington, D.C. And just recently, Stream also began offering mobile phone service, Stream Wireless. Stream is a Better Business Bureau accredited since 2010 and has since then earned an A+ rating as proof of their commitment to excellence.
