Hepburn Wind

For a long time we have admired the incredible work that Hepburn Wind have done. Hepburn Wind have led the way for community owned energy projects around Australia and that’s why we’re super excited to be Hepburn Wind’s newest energy partner, adding Gale and Gusto to our wind farm family.

Powershop’s parent company Meridian Energy own and operate two wind farms right here in Australia. Gus and Shaun who manage Meridian’s Mt Mercer wind farm, just outside Ballarat, are now the caretakers of Gale and Gusto, providing top class expertise to help keep them running for years to come.

Powershop will also provide a financial contribution to Hepburn Wind for every person who switches their electricity to Powershop. Plus, once your switch is complete you have access to the Hepburn Wind Community Green product in our shop, which is a certified GreenPower product.

At Powershop we have always been great supporters of initiatives that contribute to and promote the growth of the renewable energy mix in Australia. We are Australia’s greenest power company (Greenpeace Green Electricity Guide 2014, 2015 & 2018) and are Australia’s first and only 100% certified carbon neutral electricity retailer, meaning our customers’ electricity use is also 100% carbon neutral.

Partnering with Hepburn Wind was a no brainer and we are pretty chuffed to be able to support projects that reduce Australia’s reliance on fossil fuels.

If you are already a Powershop customer that’s great! Just get in touch with us to let us know and we can add you to the Hepburn Wind campaign. This means you will get access to the Hepburn Wind Community Green product in the Shop.
The Hepburn Wind Community Green Powerpack is a 100% GreenPower pack available in the Powershop Shop to customers who sign-up via the Hepburn Wind campaign page. All LGCs associated with this product will be sourced from the Hepburn Wind Farm.
No matter which electricity retailer you buy your electricity from, it all comes from the same central pool because all electricity retailers in Australia buy their electricity from the National Electricity Market (NEM). Because no one can control which electrons are actually delivered to your home, we made the decision to offset 100% of the carbon emissions associated with our customers’ electricity use, to help our customers reduce their carbon footprint.
Powershop does not issue any paper bills. You can monitor your electricity use and pay your bills online or on your mobile with an easy-to-use app. You can even pre-purchase power and lock in bigger discounts by buying in advance. The information in the app and online can help you use less power. You can also choose to support renewable energy projects by buying GreenPower packs for specific renewable energy projects through the online shop. We’re available to chat on 1800 462 668 (Monday to Friday 8am – 7pm).
