Why does GreenPower cost extra?

Help topic:

GreenPower is a voluntary scheme that allows businesses and individuals to increase demand for renewable energy in Australia. The extra cost is to retire the Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) that would otherwise be sold onto the market in order for retailers to meet their obligations in relation to the Renewable Energy Target (RET).
