Momentis Launches Energy Service in Illinois10:00 EDT Wednesday, October 06, 2010DALLAS, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Momentis, a wholly-owned subsidiary of leading North American energy services company Just Energy, announced today it is expanding its services into Illinois. The announcement follows Momentis' entry into the New York, Ohio and Ontario, Canada markets.  Natural gas customers who reside in Peoples Gas, Northshore Gas and Nicor service areas will have the option to switch their natural gas service to Just Energy. "Illinois is an important new market for us," said Momentis President and CEO Chris Domhoff. "As the weather cools and consumers begin to think about how to best use their energy dollars, we feel strongly that our product will be well-received."Momentis' business model is built on a network of Independent Representatives who market the company's products to friends, colleagues and family members. As the network grows, so does volume. Independent Representatives primarily will market Momentis' primary product, long-term, fixed-price energy contracts that protect customers from price volatility. Additionally, Momentis will provide through its Independent Representatives environmentally friendly, green energy options that give consumers an opportunity to reduce or offset their carbon footprint.For more information on becoming a customer or joining the Momentis team, visit Momentis.net or call 214-692-2500.
