Our Story

People Power

It started with two Daves

Our story begins with two Daves. Dave Ireland and Dave Aaskov. Turns out, they had more in common than their names. The two Daves share a passion for reducing the financial and environmental impact of energy. Something they discovered while trying to help a school with their sky high power bill, (we all know that feeling right?). Not only was it expensive, finding a renewable option that was easy to install, affordable and do-able seemed impossible. The big power companies were too busy to help and too slow to change. Tired of waiting and searching for better, like all good Aussie’s they decided a little DIY was needed. So they set about installing a solar system for the school. It was a success and it gave them a big idea. What if we did this for everyone? And Radian Energy was born.

When it comes to choosing between energy that harms the planet and energy that doesn’t, 
is it really a choice? We don’t think so. So when we couldn’t find what we were looking for, 
we decided to do something about it, and Radian Energy was born.
We’re on a mission to 
help every Aussie home and business use their power for good by giving them access to renewable energy that’s cheaper, greener and better for the future.

A better way. It’s in our DNA.
We really love helping others. It’s why Radian was started and why we come to work every day. We love making it easier and more affordable for everyone to go renewable. We started this crazy ride to help as many Aussie homes and businesses do just that. And we’ll admit it, it’s kind of fun helping people tell the big energy companies thanks, it’s been fun but I’ve met someone else.

Net-Zero is where we begin, not end
We don’t think ticking a little box to get greener energy should even be a choice you have to make. It’s why Radian gives every customer power that is carbon offset by default. It’s called Net-Zero and it’s about minimising the negative impact we have on the environment. It means where carbon released in the generation of power, we remove an equal amount or more. This isn’t a nice to have, an optional program you opt in to and we charge you more for. For us it’s the starting point and why every customer who switches to Radian has Net-Zero power automatically.

We’re democratising power
We want to free people from the big power companies. To help everyone say goodbye to energy that’s generated in huge power stations and transported to them through the grid and hello to energy independence. Which is a fancy way of saying we want to make it easy for you to make some, or all, of your own power, so you don’t have to pay others for it. Today, ordinary people and businesses can enjoy the cost savings and environmental savings that come with generating your own power. And we always make sure our customers get access to the best options for them.

Power to the people
Sometimes people ask what we’ll do if all of our customers end up not needing us anymore. That if we keep helping people become less reliant on power companies that we won’t have a business. We say, we’d love that day to come. It would mean our mission would be achieved. That People Power, as we call it, had been a success and we could all just call it power. Until that day we’re going to work hard to keep making solar and batteries as cheap and easy for everyone to attain as we can.

Helping is what we do
The two Daves met while helping out a school. And they’re still helping out whenever they can. We’re pretty chuffed that as we grow so too does our ability to help more Australians, organisations, and communities become energy independent. From leading the charge on climate action via United Nation's Climate Neutral Now to founding Zero Positive, a world-first, not-for-profit emissions reduction program for Schools endorsed by the United Nations.

And we’re only just beginning
We’re not the biggest power company around, by a long way. But one day we really hope to be. Not because we want to be a mammoth company, but because we want to be able to have an even greater impact. Every one of us needs power and if we can make that power better for the planet and save people money for more important things, then we’ll aim to be as big as we can.

Power to the people

We believe power should be shared amongst the many, not controlled by the few.
It’s why we help Aussie’s take their power back by providing better choices when it comes to their energy supply. We make it easy for everyone to free themselves from outdated energy supplies and start enjoying power that’s cheaper, more reliable, greener, and better for the future.

We believe that together we can create a brighter tomorrow.
We all have the power to change. And together we can change the world. By helping people make simple switches that are better for society and the planet, we make it easy for everyone to achieve things they didn’t know they could.

We believe in using our energy to power positive change.
We don’t just accept things for how they are or wait for them to change. We take action. We continually look for better ways. And when we find them, we lead the way forward and light the way to make it easy for others to follow our path.
