Get to Know Us

Ambit Energy Canada is the newest addition to our U.S. parent company, Ambit Energy, based in Dallas, Texas, a leading energy retailer with exceptional experience. Ambit has grown into a company with more than 1 million Customers. We’ve expanded from our home into Canada, Japan, 16 states and the District of Columbia.

We’re proud of our history of success, and prouder still to help our Canadian Customers benefit from the advantages of deregulation. Our roots go back to 2006, when our Co-Founders Jere Thompson, Jr. and Chris Chambless met at a local deli, over turkey sandwiches. They devised a blueprint focused on the opportunities of the newly deregulated Texas electricity market. And our executives still work from the $19 tables they bought back in 2006 instead of fancy desks. It’s a reminder that no matter how far we’ve come, we owe it all to our Customers, and it’s why we always put you first.

Humble Beginnings

Ambit Energy started with a simple lunch meeting back in 2006, when Co-Founders Jere Thompson, Jr. and Chris Chambless met to discuss the opportunities created by energy deregulation in the United States. Now, Ambit is active in the United States, Canada and Japan.

True to Our Roots

To conserve capital when Ambit started out, our executives bought $19 folding tables instead of desks. They still use those tables today.

Our Principles

From its first day, Ambit has been guided by a single principle – “to never sacrifice integrity for growth.”
