The Newcastle Knights is pleased to welcome Red Energy as an Official Partner for the next two years.
This is the first NRL sponsorship for Red Energy, a 100 per cent Australian energy company, which is owned by Snowy Hydro Ltd.
"With the season about to start, it's great to welcome Red Energy as an Official Partner of the Club," COO Wendy Carmichael said on Friday.
"We both share similar values and aspirations for our region and we look forward to building a successful partnership over the next two years and beyond."
Whilst the red and blue jersey colors of the Knights provide a perfect match for the Red/Snowy sponsorship, it’s the clubs strong links to its community that really appealed to Red.
Red Energy CEO Iain Graham said, “Being a part of any community that we operate in is incredibly important to us.
"We want to do business with people who share our values.
"The Snowy Hydro Scheme (our parent company) was built on hard work, perseverance and incredible team work.
"We see real synergies between our iconic history and the grit and determination that are the foundations of the Knights club."
Red Energy been supplying both electricity and gas to more than 490,000 customers in NSW and Victoria over the last 10 years. It has been well received in regional areas where customers don’t always get the same level of choice or customer service as the big cities.
Red has offers available to residents living in the Hunter and Newcastle region and continues to expand its customer base across NSW. Red is very proud of the fact that it has won multiple awards for customer service, most recently winning the Canstar Award for Most Satisfied Customers in NSW for 2014.
Mr Graham added, “Our goal over the next two years and beyond is to support the Knights through a range of initiatives that will make a difference to all the families and kids who love their club."
