“Click Energy’s involvement with our organisation will enable Diabetes UK Northern Ireland to bring to fruition projects that will help to educate the public on diabetes and support families. This includes education on the management of the condition and living with diabetes, plus our partnership will help to reward all of our Diabetes UK Northern Ireland volunteers who give so much of their time to the benefit others.”

Established in November 2015, Click Energy is Northern Ireland’s fastest growing electricity company. With almost 30,000 customers, the company has taken part in many fundraising events for several charities over the last two years however this is its first official charity partnership. 

Damian Wilson, Managing Director of Click Energy, added: “As a local company, we wanted to partner with a charity that would ensure that the funds we raised would be distributed to communities across Northern Ireland.

“We asked our team to choose their charity of choice for 2018, and Diabetes UK Northern Ireland came out on tops. As the parent of a child with diabetes, I understand the importance of the work that Diabetes UK Northern Ireland delivers and we are very much looking forward to generating much-needed funds for Diabetes UK Northern Ireland in 2018.”

The Diabetes UK Northern Ireland and Click Energy partnership will see Click Energy donating a substantial sum to the charity, which will help Diabetes UK Northern Ireland deliver programs that can make a difference to diabetics of all ages and their families in 2018.

“After a successful first year in business, we are thrilled to announce a further 12 new jobs at Click Energy NI. The continual steady growth of the company is testament to the fact that people in Northern Ireland are ready for something different from their electricity providers.

“Click Energy offers customers not just choice when selecting an electricity provider, but transparency on billing and we’re proud to deliver the lowest standard rate of electricity in Northern Ireland with no introductory discounts that entice new customers in but are over within three to six months!”

This latest news marks a further milestone for Click Energy NI since its launch in October 2015 when 20 new jobs were created.

Since its launch, the number of employees at Click Energy NI has grown to 46 including an off-site sales team and when all 12 of the new positions are filled it will bring the total number of employees to 52 by January 2017.

“In year 1, our customer numbers surpassed 12,000 and by the end of 2017 our goal is to have 25,000 Click Energy customers. There’s a huge opportunity for us to grow both across NI and in ROI, as our pricing model, combined with transparent billing and exceptional customer service has really resonated with customers.”

Welcoming the investment, Invest NI's North West Regional Manager, Des Gartland, said: “Click Energy’s expansion is good news for the area and signals the company’s continued commitment to growth.
