A new 100pc renewable energy provider is aiming to sign up 100,000 domestic customers on both sides of the Irish border within the next two years.

Bright is a 50:50 venture between family-owned fuel and forecourts business Maxol and brothers Ciaran and Stephen Devine, who are entrepreneurs in the energy space.

Brian Donaldson, chief executive of Maxol, said that the company was investing a seven-figure sum in the new venture, which promises to bring better value with its gas and electricity supply.
