Restart Energy, one of the biggest independent suppliers of energy and natural gas on the local market, intends this year to double the number of household customers, to 65,000 and to increase its income by approximately 80%, up to 220 million RON.
According to a press release sent by the company on Wednesday, to AGERPRES, the growth is determined by the market liberalization and the adding of new business lines with higher added value, such as that of equipment sale.
Thus, the management of Restart Energy wishes to reach 65,000 clients by this year's end, with 35,000 more than in 2020. Furthermore, on the business segment it wants to reach 7,500 customers, with a 50% increase against last year.

Thus, Restart Energy is counting on income of 220 million RON in 2021, with 100 million RON more (+83%) than last year. The company's leadership plans that at the end of 2021 to reach a net profit of 24.2 million RON, as opposed to approximately 13 million RON (estimate) last year.

So we can notice that we are receiving a thousand requests on a daily basis, and 70% of the ones that are interested in our offers become our clients as well. We know that it is a temporary effect - of a few weeks - given to the market liberalization. But this historical event for the Romanian energy market will change the way the entire field is shown, and it will support us in reaching our objectives," the CEO and founder of Restart Energy, Armand Domuta says.
