Click-image-01-(2).png

Click Energy keeps its customers happiest and that's official, according to the latest Consumer Council league table for all of the electricity suppliers in Northern Ireland. 

The local electricity company with almost 30,000 customers has come out tops once again in the Consumer Council Customer Satisfaction Survey (August-September 2020). Click Energy scored 82% for customer satisfaction - almost 10% higher than its nearest competitor - and it also polled best for customers recommending their current supplier in the data reported from an online consumer survey by YouGov for the Consumer Council. 

Damian Wilson, Managing Director of Click Energy, is delighted with the results from the latest customer satisfaction report published by the consumer body for Northern Ireland which also coincides with the local electricity company's fifth birthday this month. Click Energy also scooped the accolade for the same period in the survey in August 2019. 

He said: "Click Energy prides ourselves on providing first class customer service led by a magnificent team which has been borne out yet again in this independent survey carried out by the Consumer Council across all five Northern Ireland electricity suppliers. 

"We don't drop the ball on customer service and I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank both our own staff for their commitment to putting our customers first at all times and all our customers for choosing Click Energy and their valued ongoing support. As well as continuously reviewing our tariffs to offer the best unit rate for all in Northern Ireland, we also reward both our new and existing customers for their loyalty: new customers receive £50 free electricity* when they switch to Click Energy and all customers can earn an additional £20 free electricity every time that they refer family and friends to us. 

"All Click Energy customers can also make valuable savings on both their home energy and household costs by availing of our Clickbacks rewards scheme which offers discounts on hundreds of high street brands, supermarkets and much more. We will now be aiming for three in a row in the Customer Satisfaction Survey this time next year, so watch this space!"

He said: "Click Energy and our valued customers have helped to support a number of local charities since we were established five years ago. Samaritans has been providing a lifeline to those in need for nearly 60 years, they are ordinary people doing an extraordinary job. 

"The Click Energy team were keen that our new charity of the year would help support people who may be feeling alone with difficult thoughts or feelings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Samaritans' volunteers are there to listen round the clock, every day of the year and we look forward to generating funds to assist the NI branches as soon as possible. 

"We know from previous charity campaigns how generous our customers are and we want to thank everyone sincerely once again for their support. We appreciate these are very challenging times for many households so our message is simply to donate as little or as much as you can to this very deserving campaign for Samaritans over the next 12 months."

Alan Heron, Regional Director, Samaritans Northern Ireland said: "We are delighted that Click Energy has so kindly reached out to us as a relatively new local company with a proven track record of supporting charities across Northern Ireland. We would also like to thank the customers for their generosity at a time when non-judgemental emotional support is needed more than ever. Belfast branch, as the oldest Samaritan branch in Ireland, will celebrate its 60th birthday next year. 

"Calls to Samaritans are received by volunteers trained in listening skills and you can be assured that all calls are fully confidential. We provide dedicated training and support to all volunteers during their time as part of a caring organisation that puts supporting and listening to anyone in need of emotional support as its top priority."

NI businesses urged to get better deal on electricity tariffs

Damian-Wilson,-MD-Click-Energy.JPG

Northern Ireland businesses who haven’t changed their electricity supplier in a while could be paying higher energy bills than necessary - and Click Energy also offers 100% renewable tariffs to help its customers reduce their carbon footprint.

Click Energy is encouraging businesses to check the tariffs they are currently on and shop around to make much-needed savings, particularly during the increasingly challenging economic climate at present, whilst also helping to protect the planet by going greener.

 

Click Energy has gained almost 30,000 customers since it was established almost five years ago.

 

Damian Wilson, Managing Director of Click Energy, had the following message for local business and commercial customers: “If you have been with your current supplier for a long time, you could be paying premium rates. Now is a great time to switch to a new deal, especially given the current lower wholesale costs.

 

“Click Energy can provide a bespoke quote depending on customer usage and needs. We are also happy to offer businesses competitive tariffs to increase night demand. We can offer 100% renewable tariffs for businesses too which in turn enables their customers to reduce their carbon footprint on our environment which we all have a duty to protect for future generations.”

 

Click Energy is currently Northern Ireland’s greenest domestic electricity supplier based on Fuel Mix Disclosure data for local suppliers published by the Utility Regulator. The local energy company is also currently offering the cheapest domestic unit rate for all at 16.49p kWh inc. VAT. (Daily standing charge applies, T&Cs apply).

 

Damian Wilson said: “We recently introduced our new Instant Saver Tariff which we are happy to say is the lowest domestic unit rate currently available for all in Northern Ireland. Click Energy scored best out of all the Northern Ireland electricity suppliers in the Consumer Council’s customer satisfaction survey published in August 2019 and we expect to come out on top once again when the results of the most recent survey are published later this year.”

Click Energy staff make a healthy start to the day during Men's Health Week

756a6679-54d4-4e55-94d8-27d8d9f43346-(3).jpg

Click Energy has given its backing to Men's Health Week which runs from June 15-21, 2020.

The company has shown its commitment to both mental and physical wellbeing of all its staff by signing up to a Healthy Business Programme with Danny Glenn from Uturn Fitness in Derry.

Initially planned for four weeks, the programme has proved so popular that is has been extended so that staff can continue to start their day with an invigorating workout session as well as follow Danny's guide to nutrition and healthy eating.

The online classes have been a lifeline for many who have been unable to keep up their usual training regimes since gyms closed in mid-March.

Damian Wilson, Managing Director of Click Energy said: "We're delighted that the Healthy Business Programme has been so beneficial to our staff. Many have had to adapt to working from home and having the early sessions is helping to motivate staff from first thing in the morning. We'd like to thank Danny for inspiring us every day and, as a company, we will continue to look at ways to promote staff wellbeing, during Men's Health Week and all year round."

Click Energy have also made a £500 donation towards a fundraiser Danny has been involved in which resulted in 18 portals being installed in care homes throughout Derry to allow families to keep in touch with older relatives who are residents.

Danny Glenn from Uturn Fitness said: "I'd like to say a heartfelt thank you to Click Energy, not only for their very generous donation but also for the dedication shown by all the staff in the Healthy Business Programme. When clients put the work in early, it sets them up for the day ahead. I was delighted that Click Energy was one of a number of local companies to sign up to my early morning sessions and I'm proud of what their staff have achieved in the time since we started. 

"Having structure and focus is more important now than ever, given the lack of routine and the uncertainty that the lockdown has brought. A healthy body helps promote a healthy mind and I am honoured to have been able to play a part in improving the health and wellbeing of the staff at Click Energy."

People power boosts local energy supplier's PPE appeal 

IHCP-PPE.jpeg

Caring consumers have helped Northern Ireland's newest electricity supplier boost the provision of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for frontline staff during the battle against COVID-19.

Click Energy raised over £3,000 in donations within four weeks which will be used by Independent Health and Care Providers (IHCP) to distribute much-needed PPE to its members throughout NI.

IHCP is a membership organisation with members from independent private, charity, not-for-profit and church affiliated organisations. The independent sector in NI employs over 30,000 people to provide care to around 15,000 residents in care homes and sheltered housing and a further 23,000 people in their own homes every week.

Damian Wilson, Chief Executive of Click Energy, praised the generosity of the public response to the PPE fundraising appeal which was launched on their website, clickenergyni.com on 24th April 2020.

He said: "We have been overwhelmed yet again by the generosity of Click Energy customers who donated on the portal provided while topping up their electricity online, together with all those who also called our freephone number to make a person donation to support our special appeal in partnership with IHCP.

"The urgent need for additional PPE for frontline staff has really struck a chord with people during this global pandemic and as a local company, we feel very proud to have the support of such caring consumers in towns and cities all over Northern Ireland."

Pauline Shepherd, Chief Executive of IHCP which oversees the distribution of PPE to care providers across NI, described the total amount donated through the Click Energy appeal as "brilliant news".

She said: "This money will be used to purchase PPE for IHCP members and is greatly appreciated. From the start of this pandemic the demand for PPE has escalated world-wide creating significant challenges in both supply and escalating costs of protective equipment. We are immensely grateful for all donations and wish to express our sincere appreciation to Click Energy for initiating the recent appeal and all those who contributed."

Click Energy previously raised funds for Diabetes UK Northern Ireland and Action Cancer. The electricity company established in November 2015 and has approximately 30,000 customers.

Click Energy powers up PPE fundraising appeal

PPE-CH-Office.jpg

Click Energy have joined forces with Independent Health and Care Providers (IHCP) to launch a major fundraising appeal to help ensure frontline staff get much-needed new Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) aimed at keeping them safe from COVID-19. If you would like to make a donation to the PPE appeal you can call us on 0800 107 0732 you do not have to be a Click Energy customer to help ensure frontline staff get much-needed support.

IHCP is the recognised member organisation for those providing services for older people and vulnerable adults in Northern Ireland. It represents private, not-for-profit, charity and church-affiliated organisations providing residential and nursing home care, sheltered housing and care in the home.

Damian Wilson, Managing Director of Click Energy, said the team were keen to support efforts to ensure PPE was being delivered to frontline workers providing crucial domiciliary care to older people and vulnerable adults as well as those in residential care. IHCP is tasked with distributing PPE stock throughout the North and to all care providers.

He explained: "As a local company, we wanted to collaborate with an organisation that would ensure PPE was being delivered to some of the frontline workers who are particularly in need of added protection while doing such heroic work providing domiciliary care and in care homes during the ongoing global pandemic.

"Both our colleagues and customers have family members and friends who are either frontline workers or being cared for by them and we understand just how crucial it is to keep precious loved ones safe from the spread of COVID-19. Our team had no hesitation in choosing IHCP as the organisation best suited to assist in this new campaign and we look forward to generating much-needed funds for PPE distribution within Northern Ireland as soon as possible."

Welcoming the partnership with Click Energy, Pauline Shepherd, Chief Executive of IHCP, said: "The independent sector employs over 30,000 staff across Northern Ireland delivering care to over 15,000 people in care homes and sheltered housing and around 16,000 people in their own homes every week. We are delighted we are now also being supported by Click Energy and their customers through this new collaboration with the local electricity company which has a strong proven track record for its charitable endeavours and reaching out to assist community focused projects.

"Click Energy's involvement with IHCP will enable us to ensure that additional PPE is being delivered to frontline workers deployed by our members. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Click Energy customers for their support as we know the provision of PPE is close to everyone's hearts more than ever now in the battle against COVID-19."

Damian Wilson added: "We appreciate these are very challenging times for many households so our message to customers and anyone else who wishes to help with our PPE appeal, is simply to donate as little or as much as you would like by visiting out website www.clickenergyni.com where a special donation page is now open.

We know just how generous our customers are from previous Click Energy charity appeals and we want to thank everyone sincerely once again for supporting Click Energy and IHCP."

Established in November 2015, Click Energy has approximately 30,000 customers who have also helped the company with successful fundraising appeals for Diabetes UK Northern Ireland and Action Cancer.

Click Energy is NI’s greenest electricity supplier 

rsz_1click_energy_tops_for_renewables_0110ce007-(4).jpg

GO GREEN! Damian Wilson, Managing Director of Click Energy, Northern Ireland's greenest domestic electricity company, pictured with local eco-friendly kids Cora and Brodie.

Click Energy is Northern Ireland’s top domestic electricity company when it comes to sourcing its supply from renewables, new figures published by the Utility Regulator have revealed.

Fuel Mix Disclosure and CO2 Emissions for 2018 show that Click Energy is well on its way to becoming wholly reliant on renewables, with its current attainment level at almost 83%.

The figures have been published by the Utility Regulator after the Single Electricity Market Operator (SEMO) calculated the fuel mix information for companies across Ireland in 2018.

The report includes the fuel mix and CO2 emissions factors for suppliers licensed in Northern Ireland and operating in the Single Electricity Market (SEM). 

Damian Wilson, Managing Director of Click Energy, said he was proud of its renewables’ score and the company is currently on track to go 100% green thanks to its environmentally-aware customers.  

He said: “Click Energy has emerged as the domestic market leader in Northern Ireland with its high score in SEMO’s calculations which reinforces our mission to buy all our energy from generation sources like wind, solar, anaerobic digestion, biomass and hydro. By buying more and more directly from renewable sources, we’re helping to make a difference to protecting the planet while still offering good value for consumers who switch to our green energy tariff. 

“Every time a Click Energy customer plugs in their phone charger, flicks on the kettle or sits down to watch TV, they are helping us to become a ‘greener and cleaner’ energy supplier whilst also reducing their own carbon footprint. We give an undertaking to match all or some of the electricity used with renewable energy, which then feeds back into the National Grid.”

The Click Energy founder added: “The more that people sign up to our competitive green energy tariff, the greener the Grid becomes and Click Energy is on target to achieve its long-term vision of a future where all homes in Northern Ireland will be powered by green tariffs.”

The fuel mix for Click Energy last year was 82.7% renewable, 9.8% gas, 4.1% coal, 2.8% peat, 0.4% oil and 0.2% other. The North-West based energy company which was established in 2015, also scored best in Northern Ireland domestically for CO2 emissions at 0.115 t/MWh. 

The Utility Regulator is required to ensure that all suppliers provide reliable information to customers regarding the contribution of each energy source to the overall fuel mix of the supplier concerned and the associated environmental impacts in the preceding year.  

Switching to a green energy tariff with Click Energy is completely hassle-free. Simply call 0800 1 070732 or visit www.clickenergyni.com to reduce your carbon footprint today.

Did you know?

While renewable energy is thought of as new, windmills and water wheels have been harnessing the power of wind and water for thousands of years.

Just one wind turbine can generate enough electricity to power 1,400 homes.

Siemens built the first ever commercial offshore wind turbine 30 years ago. Its blades were 5 metres long, producing just 30 kilowatts of power. The latest model has 75 metre blades, producing 6 megawatts (25,000 times as much) – enough to power 6,000 homes.

Solar power may account for the world's main source of power by 2050 - and Europe and North Africa could run on 100% renewable energy by 2050.

Romans were the very first to use geothermal energy to heat their homes, with warm air moving under floors and inside walls.

In 1921 Albert Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of the photoelectric effect – and hence, solar panels.

If it could be properly harnessed, there’s enough sunlight that falls on the earth in just one hour to meet the world energy demands for a whole year!

48 cyclists peddling for 24 hours can generate enough power to run a TV for a week - this record breaker was achieved at Olympian City in Hong Kong in June 2014, generating just under 30,000 watt-hours of energy.

Click Energy generates £30,000 for Action Cancer services

Click Energy, NI’s newest electricity company, has generated a whopping £30,000 for Action Cancer through its #chequeforcancer campaign which will help the charity’s mobile unit – the Big Bus – travel to hundreds of locations delivering free breast screenings to local women.

Established in 2015, Click Energy has been solidly growing its customer base and in 2017 the Derry-based company was named as NI’s top energy provider by the UK’s consumer champion magazine, Which?

Through the #chequeforcancer campaign, customers supported Action Cancer, NI’s leading local cancer charity, when they switched to Click Energy. By simply using a promotional code, Action Cancer received a £10 donation and the customer received £15 of free electricity.

Damian Wilson, Managing Director and founder of Click Energy, said: “We are absolutely delighted with the amount of funds raised through our corporate partnership with Action Cancer. As a local company we are proud to be able to support local people by aligning ourselves to a local charity whose mission is to save lives and support people through cancer awareness, prevention, detection and support services.”

Lucy McCusker, Action Cancer’s Corporate Fundraising Manager, said: “We are so grateful to receive such fantastic support from Click Energy and its customers from the #chequeforcancer campaign. This £30,000 donation will make a significant impact in powering up our work, enabling us to deliver 375 free breast screenings to women aged 40-49 and 70+ (outside of NHS screening age range) or 857 free counselling and complementary therapy sessions to people affected by a cancer diagnosis. What an amazing achievement!

The funds generated by Click Energy will help Action Cancer’s mobile unit, the Big Bus, supported by SuperValu, travel to 225 locations every year delivering free breast screenings to local women.

Dungiven woman and Action Cancer Ambassador Majella McCormick, is just one of the many local women who have benefitted from early detection of their breast cancer by attending the Big Bus.

She recalled: “My breast cancer was detected when I stepped on the Big Bus for a mammogram with Action Cancer when it visited Limavady in June 2017. I was aged 46 and had no symptoms whatsoever. Following further investigation at Altnagelvin Hospital, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in the left breast. This was such a shock for me, my husband and two sons.

Thankfully my cancer was caught at an early and treatable stage. After surgery and radiotherapy, I’m pleased to report that I am now cancer-free. If I had waited until 50 for my first NHS breast screening, I’m convinced that I wouldn't have lived to reach that milestone. The cancer was located close to the breast bone so it is very unlikely that I could have found it by self-examination. Action Cancer saved my life through early detection and I am passionate about telling people about the Big Bus and the charity’s breast screening service.

Action Cancer offer therapeutic support services to anyone affected by cancer. This can be the person diagnosed and family/friends/carers from diagnosis stage, during or after treatment. The charity also offers support to anyone who has been bereaved through cancer or undergoing genetic cancer testing. 

In the last year, Action Cancer has been offering counselling and complementary therapy in partnership with the Western Health and Social Care Trust at their new Macmillan Health and Wellbeing Centre at Altnagelvin Hospital. The charity also delivers counselling in partnership with Derry Well Woman and counselling and complementary therapy in Limavady in partnership with  LCDI (Limavady Community Development Initiative).

Majella McCormick has recently signed up to receive six sessions of complementary therapy at Altnagelvin Hospital. Complementary therapy has been shown to be effective in dealing both with physical as well as emotional and psychological symptoms that impact people affected by cancer.

Majella explained why she is now seeking this support: “Once I received the news I was cancer-free I was obviously delighted but I then had more time to think about what could have happened if I hadn’t attended Action Cancer’s Big Bus that day for breast screening.

I’ve had a few panic attacks but now is the time to take back control and avail of the complementary therapy on offer which will help me learn how to relax, focus on myself and how to better manage my emotions. I owe the charity so much and I am also very thankful to companies such as Click Energy for helping Action Cancer to save the lives of local women like me and helping us cope with life after cancer.”

Book an appointment on the Big Bus or avail of a counselling or complementary therapy session either by calling 028 7127 7123 or at www.actioncancer.org/appointments

Included at front are Conal McLaughlin and Oran McCarron, and back from left, Gavin Moore, Mark McGeady, Tom Wilson and Ethan Devlin.

A Derry youth footballing club which continues to keep the memory alive of one of its most popular former players, has made a special presentation in his honour as part of Click Energy’s #chequeforcancer campaign.

Tristar Boys’ FC donated all proceeds from the recent Anthony Martin Memorial Tournament, kindly sponsored by Click Energy, to the local company’s chosen charity, Action Cancer.

Damian Wilson, managing director of Click Energy, said he was delighted with the presentation by the club of £823.06 towards the #chequeforcancer campaign.

Greg Parke, manager of Tristar 2007s, explained that every year since 10-year-old Anthony Martin sadly passed away, Tristar Boys hold the memorial tournament for U11 teams. 

He said: “The Tristar Committee agreed that this would be the perfect tournament, to donate the proceeds to Action Cancer. The club approached Anthony's parents and they were delighted that the proceeds from their son's memorial tournament, would be donated to such a worthwhile cause.”

The tournament, held at Magee pitches, was a footballing treat with 12 local teams competing in two groups for four trophies.  The teams supplied fantastic entertainment with some exciting football on display and Anthony’s parents were on hand to present the main trophy. 

Tristar and Trojans played out a thrilling final which saw Tristar Boys pipped by a one goal difference.

Greg added: “Before the presentation, Tristar’s Ryan Horner spoke of how this tournament was Ugg’s (the late founder of Tristar Boys' FC) pride and joy and how satisfied he would be to see so many kids playing and the club continuing to keep Anthony’s memory alive.”

Shop around and discover Click Energy is still the number one choice

ce.jpg

Click Energy, Northern Ireland’s fastest growing electricity provider, has urged local consumers to shop around to get the best possible deal, which could save them around £50 a year.

Click Energy’s current tariff is 16.99p including vat per unit but it is the only supplier in the NI market which does not apply a daily standing charge. Which? Magazine revealed last year that Click Energy was NI’s top energy provider.

Damian Wilson, Click Energy’s founder and managing director, urged consumers to reduce their electricity bills by using the Consumer Council’s price comparison table as an independent guide.

Pointing out that Click Energy have no exit fees or daily charges, he said: “We work extra hard to give our customers a better deal including competitive prices and good customer service. If you are not getting a fair deal for your electricity you should switch today.

Click Energy also provide perks known as ‘Clickbacks’ -  a special discount scheme that allows customers to claim money-off from a number of major High Street retailers and supermarkets. ‘Friends with Benefits’ also awards £20 free credit for every new customer referral.

Mr Wilson continued: “When we entered the market back in November 2015, we aimed to create a new breed of electricity provider that would provide customers in Northern Ireland with excellent value, incredible customer service and clear billing, and this vision is paying off with hundreds of customers switching to Click Energy every month.”

Harry adds energy to Diabetes awareness campaign

Family is the theme for World Diabetes Day on Wednesday, November 14th 2018 and for one local schoolboy, living with Type 1 diabetes has only made him more determined to live life to the full while helping raise awareness along the way.

Damien-Wilson-and-Harry.jpg

Damien Wilson, MD of Click Energy and his son Harry helping raise awareness for World Diabetes Day on Wednesday November 14th 2018

If there’s one thing local teenager Harry Wilson is not short of while living with Type 1 diabetes over the past decade, it’s energy!

Harry (14), who was diagnosed when he was four years old, plays an active role in helping to raise diabetes awareness and is a role model for young people coping with the condition.

He is fully supported not just at home and in school but through the family business Click Energy which a year ago chose Diabetes UK Northern Ireland as its official charity for 2018.

The charity partnership selected by the Click Energy team, was inspired by seeing how well Harry, the son of Managing Director Damian Wilson, managed his diabetes from such a young age and show how you can still lead a normal life.

Harry has also helped Diabetes UK Northern Ireland review guidance for young people managing the condition in school where they spend so much of their lives.

He explained: “I have probably coped quite well because I’m used to having diabetes since I was four. It was more of a worry for my parents when I was diagnosed but it’s just part of everyday life now and as long as I stay on track managing it should be fine.

Harry is one of around seven pupils at his school with diabetes and as well as supporting each other they have the added support of classroom assistant Anne Beattie, the diabetes champion at St Joseph’s Boys’ School in Derry, who knows the complexities only too well as she is also Type 1, and staff member Rosin McLaughlin is always on hand to help as well.

Harry knows how vital it is to check his blood sugar levels regularly and keep track of the carbs and he wears an insulin pump which he administers himself when required.

Speaking ahead of World Diabetes Day on November 14th, the teenager said that while he had missed a lot of P1 and P2 following his diagnosis, there was now better awareness in schools about diabetes and help with monitoring blood sugars.

He also reassured any young people newly diagnosed with the condition that they can still pursue the same hobbies as their friends, including competitive sports.

Like most lads his age, Harry enjoys playing football, is also a good swimmer and golfs twice a week. With entrepreneurship in the genes, he’s already considering dipping his toe in the family business where his mum Martina also works in Customer Service.

Damian Wilson, who founded Click Energy - Northern Ireland’s fastest growing electricity provider – in 2015, said he was very proud that the eldest of their three children was a role model for young people with diabetes as a result of his own experience with the condition.

Harry is a very caring young man and diabetes hasn’t stood in his way, if anything it has made him more headstrong and independent. He loves ‘The Apprentice’ and is a big fan of Sir Alan Sugar so hopefully he will start working here at 16 to gain some experience.

Currently, there are 100,000 people living with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes in Northern Ireland, and this figure is on the rise, making the need for education and awareness surrounding the condition more important than ever.

People with Type 1 diabetes cannot produce insulin. About 10 per cent of people with diabetes have Type 1. No-one knows exactly what causes it, but it’s not to do with being overweight and it isn’t currently preventable. It’s the most common type of diabetes in children and young adults, starting suddenly and getting worse quickly. Type 1 diabetes is treated by daily insulin doses – taken either by injections or via an insulin pump. It is also recommended to follow a healthy diet and take regular physical activity.

Jillian Patchett, National Director of Diabetes UK Northern Ireland, welcomed the partnership with Click Energy which included funding for pilot programmes including a new role for Connections Ambassadors to provide help and support in diabetes clinics and also the 2018 Diabetes Volunteer Inspire Awards.

She added: “The theme of World Diabetes Day 2018 is Family. We know how important it is to have a network of family, friends, colleagues, class mates and healthcare professionals who are all there for support when it’s needed. We really appreciate all the help we receive and encourage everyone to continue to raise funds and awareness about this serious condition.”

Jillian Patchett said, “We are delighted to officially open the nominations for the Inspire Awards at our ‘Make Change Happen’ event. Every year we receive dozens of nominations about people who are making a positive difference, whether that is providing support, organising imaginative fundraising activities, campaigning on a particular diabetes issue or helping us raise awareness. It is so inspiring hearing these stories and it is a wonderful opportunity to put a spotlight on people, who deserve recognition for all that they do.

This award will champion local healthcare professionals who have gone above and beyond their role in providing help for patients living with diabetes.

After the event, Damian commented, “We are honoured to be supporting the 2018 Diabetes UK Northern Ireland’s Inspire Awards with Click Energy. 

“As the parent of a child with diabetes, I fully understand the importance of the work that Diabetes UK Northern Ireland delivers and how instrumental the contribution of volunteers is to supporting people living with diabetes. 

“In addition to acknowledging the huge role that these volunteers and groups play in society, our hope is that it will ‘inspire’ others to get involved with Diabetes UK Northern Ireland.”

Which? magazine names Click Energy as NI’s top electricity provider!

which_logo_hi_res-(1).png

BILLED as the UK’s consumer champion magazine, the February edition of Which? Magazine has revealed that Click Energy has been named as Northern Ireland’s top energy provider! 
 

In its annual satisfaction survey*, which reveals what customers really think of their energy suppliers, every supplier in Northern Ireland was included. Click Energy tops the poll with an 84% customer score, well ahead of Budget Energy (68%), Electric Ireland (64%), SSE Airtricity Electricity (60%) and Power NI (54%). 

In fact, Click Energy’s customer score of 84% polled higher than any of the other 30 energy providers that were included in the survey, with the top provider in Great Britain – Utility Warehouse – being awarded 79%. 

Nearly two thirds of Click Energy customers rated their supplier as delivering ‘excellent value for money’, and Which? also allocated 5 stars to Click Energy for the clarity and accuracy of its billing.  

Alex Neill, Which? Managing Director of Home Products and Services, said: “Our survey shows that more than 80% of electricity customers in Northern Ireland are customers of the lowest-scoring electricity providers, with the biggest electricity supplier rated poor value for money.

“Energy companies must work harder to give their customers a better deal including competitive prices and good customer service. If you're not getting a fair deal for your electricity you should switch today to potentially save hundreds of pounds and get a better service."

Established just over two years ago, Click Energy NI has been solidly growing its customer-base across Northern Ireland, and almost 30,000 households are now Click Energy NI customers. 

Managing Director of Click Energy NI, Damian Wilson, adds: “We are absolutely thrilled by the results of the Which? survey, which cement Click Energy’s commitment to its customers. 

“When we entered the market back in November 2015, we aimed to create a new breed of electricity provider that would provide customers in Northern Ireland with excellent value, incredible customer service and clear billing, and this vision is paying off with hundreds of customers switching to Click Energy every month.” 

This latest news from Which? magazine comes on the back of Click Energy NI being named as Northern Ireland’s number one electricity provider following a 95% customer satisfaction rating in a survey of electricity providers conducted by the Consumer Council for Northern Ireland last year**. 

Last year, Click Energy launched ‘Clickbacks’ -  an exclusive discount scheme that allows Click Energy’s customers to claim discounts and offers from major high-street brands & supermarkets. In December, the company introduced broadband services to customers and this year, Click Energy NI named Diabetes UK Northern Ireland as its official charity partner for 2018.

*Which? Magazine surveyed 8,761 members of the UK general public who are responsible for paying their energy bills and asked them what they think of their energy supplier in September 2017. 
 
**Consumer Council NI survey, Oct 2017 
 
Click Energy tops Northern Ireland table, with nearly two thirds (63%) of customers rating it excellent value for money. Gas-only supplier Firmus Energy brings up the rear, while the biggest company, Power NI, has the greatest proportion of customers rating it very poor value for money.

Click Energy NI announces 12 new jobs and expansion plans

Click Energy NI has just announced plans for 12 new jobs as part of a £371,500 investment that includes expanding its sales into the Republic of Ireland.

The jobs were announced by the Economy Minister, Simon Hamilton at an event which took place at the Timber Quay office development in Derry / L’Derry where Click Energy NI is based. 

The new jobs are being created with support from Invest NI and will be in a variety of roles including customer service, administration and sales positions. Invest NI has offered £48,000 to support the recruitment of six of the new roles and six of the 12 new positions are already in place.

Commenting on the company’s continued growth, Founder and Managing Director of Click Energy NI, Damian Wilson comments:

“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.

Click Energy has ambitious growth plans and will be entering the Irish market within the next few months. Speaking on Click Energy’s expansion plans, Mr Wilson adds: “Click Energy has big plans for the future, including expanding our offering and growing our customer base in the Irish market.

“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. The business is creating valuable employment opportunities which is making a positive contribution to the region.”
