New green energy supplier ‘bright’ launches in Northern Ireland, creating 20 jobs

  • A new ‘green energy’ supplier named ‘bright’ has launched in Northern Ireland with the creation of 20 full-time jobs at its Belfast headquarters.

    Having launched in the Republic of Ireland in July 2020, the company now wants to add to its growing all-island customer base.

    The venture has been founded by energy entrepreneurs Ciaran and Stephen Devine in partnership with Maxol, Ireland’s largest family-owned forecourt retailer. 

    The bright team said they are supplying one single variable rate tariff, to make charges and bills easier to understand, 100% green electricity sourced from renewable generators, no tie ins or exit fees and an app where customers can submit a meter reading and manage and track usage costs.

This is energy supply in a digital age that benefits customers and protects the world around us. We’re confident that for anyone who joins the bright community it will be their last switch.”

    Brian Donaldson, CEO of The Maxol Group said: “Renewable and sustainable choices have been central to Maxol’s operations for many years and when it comes to environmental initiatives, 2020 has been our most prolific. At Maxol we want to make the greener choice the easier choice for all our customers and the launch of bright is one of a number of programmes that tangibly demonstrates our commitment to the environment."
