What is GreenPower?

Help topic:

GreenPower is a national scheme to encourage greater investment in renewable energy.

Because it’s impossible to tell where the electrons delivered to your home are coming from (hence why we are 100% carbon neutral – read more), we can’t guarantee your electricity is coming directly from a renewable generation source. So, to help our customers support Australian renewables directly, we offer you the option to purchase GreenPower.

GreenPower is a voluntary government accredited program that allows Australians to displace their standard electricity usage with certified renewable energy, which is added to the grid on their behalf.

When you buy GreenPower, we then purchase the equivalent amount of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), which means more dollars are invested in renewable energy projects, which leads to more renewable energy for the grid!
