NARRE WARREN, Australia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Viridian International Management, Inc. (“Viridian”), a U.S.-based, private company, announced today that it is offering energy products to consumers in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia through a strategic partnership with Click Energy.
Viridian began launching its Australian market earlier this year and announced its strategic business relationship with Click Energy in June. Since its inception, Viridian has acquired more than 3,600 Independent Associates who will now, starting today, be able to offer Click Energy’s affordable, responsible electricity and natural gas products to customers.
“We are thrilled that today is the day—through Click Energy—that we can start providing Australian consumers with the responsible, budget-conscious energy options they both desire and deserve,” said Robert A. McFadden, Vice President of Viridian. “Click Energy’s commitment to bettering the environment mirrors our own, and together we are able to offer customers an innovative, transparent rate structure that they can depend on each month.”
Through Click Energy, Viridian is offering responsible energy products at simple, low rates with no contracts or exit fees. Click Energy is the first Australian energy supplier of its kind, operating completely online using a world-class technology system. The unique, low-overhead business model allows Click Energy to transfer savings directly to the customer through its reasonable, environment-friendly product offerings. The company, which maintains the highest ratings for Australian energy retailers, was awarded the Canstar Blue Most Satisfied Customers Award in Queensland 2015.
“Uniting with Viridian has allowed us to get creative with how we offer our energy products to customers to do something new that has never been done before,” said Dominic Drenen, CEO of Click Energy. “By having consistent low rates, our customers will be able to expect reliable, affordable monthly bills. That, partnered with Viridian’s use of carbon offsets to counterbalance greenhouse gas emissions, allows us to deliver environment-friendly energy options at competitive prices.”
Even prior to customer launch, Viridian has displayed its mission of sustainability and dedication to bettering the environment by participating in multiple, Associate-led sustainability events across the continent. Since April, Viridian has planted more than 4,000 trees and cleared away more than 500 kilos of beach debris in an effort to help the local eco-system.
Since 2011, Viridian has completed a major corporate social responsibility project on a different continent each year, including reforestation in the Amazon rainforest and solar power installations on schools, homes and community centers in Ghana, Indonesia, Fiji, Nicaragua and Albania. Viridian has helped consumers avoid more than 3 billion kilos of harmful CO2 emissions through the use of responsible energy products.
