We support
GreenPower

GreenPower is a government accreditation scheme that lets you do a bit extra to help support new renewable generation in Australia by paying a premium on your energy consumption.

 

When customers choose GreenPower we have an obligation to purchase Large Scale Generation Certificates from renewable energy generators. These GreenPower purchases are over-and-above the Government’s mandatory Renewable Energy Target, which means by purchasing GreenPower you’re supporting additional investment in renewable energy.

GreenPower is a chance for customers and communities to have a say in what sort of energy mix they want for the future of Australia.

How much does it cost?

We know that many customers support GreenPower but going 100% might be out of the budget, so we have 10%, 50% and 100% options available.

Choose from three options:

10% GreenPower0.39 cents/kWh inc GSTWe’ll add this amount to all units of power you use
50% GreenPower1.95 cents/kWh inc GSTWe’ll add this amount to all units of power you use
100% GreenPower3.90 cents/kWh inc GSTWe’ll add this amount to all units of power you use

These rates apply to both residential and business customers.

We price our GreenPower options ‘at cost’, meaning they’re based on the current certificate prices and we don’t intend to make any profit from GreenPower whatsoever.
