Carbon calculator

The too easy way to calculate your carbon emissions.

At Powershop, being carbon neutral is kind of a big deal. All the electricity we supply to our customers is 100% carbon neutral (at no extra cost). No need to opt in or pay more – it’s done for you, behind the scenes. We’re the only power company in Australia to be accredited 100% carbon neutral by the Australian Government.

Whether you’re a Powershop customer or not, we’ve put together this simple, handy calculator to help you see your household’s carbon emissions generated from electricity usage at your home or business (this is important because about one third of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions are from electricity emissions).

Carbon calculator

Note: If you are a Powershop customer the emissions shown on this calculator will not be consistent with the emissions shown on your account review due to two different emission factors being used (Essential Services Commission emission factor for the account review and NCOS emission factor for this calculator).
