How is 100% carbon neutral gas any better?

Help topic:

We’ve made our gas offer 100% carbon neutral because – like with electricity – we can’t control the gas that is supplied to your property because it all comes from the gas network. We also believe this level of support shows our customers we’re serious about helping the planet. We believe providing 100% carbon neutral gas is the right thing to do and something we can do for our customers behind the scenes.

When you have both your electricity and gas with Powershop your energy usage can be 100% carbon neutral. And the best part – you’re not paying any more for it.

Basically how it works is that Powershop calculates how much energy our customers use, uses some fancy maths and equations to calculate how much carbon that generates, and then purchases carbon credits that are equivalent to the carbon generated through our customers’ energy use. We’ve been doing this since 2014, but in 2016 the Australian government accredited our organisation and our products carbon neutral under their National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS) accreditation scheme, making us the first and only Australian energy retailer to achieve this.

In order to do as much as we can to reduce the environmental impact of using energy we carbon offset everything – it might seem like a small step, but it helps keep the planet (and our mums) happy, and who doesn’t want a happy mum?
