Is there a Demand for this type of business?
Yes. Given the ongoing employment struggle for college graduates and the millions of unemployed and underemployed, this burgeoning business is a great opportunity. Also all of these recent graduates are coming out of college thousands of dollars in debt. The two keys that make an opportunity in the energy sector so attractive: First, there is nothing to sell as people already budget for these services. Second, as the economy worsens these services will not be the ones that people cancel.
