Switch to GreenPower
Published 1 March 2021
One of the simplest actions you can take to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions is to ensure the electricity you use is sourced from renewable energy by switching to GreenPower.
What is GreenPower?
GreenPower is renewable energy from government accredited sources. Most electricity retailers in Australia have a GreenPower Accredited product that lets you purchase between 10% and 100% of your electricity from a renewable source.
Why switch to GreenPower?
The benefits of choosing GreenPower:
- Cut your greenhouse gas emissions
- Reduce your contribution to climate change
- Help drive demand for greener energy
- Develop the renewable energy sector, helping it replace non-renewable and polluting coal and gas-based generation
- Support jobs in renewable energy in regional Australia.
How to get GreenPower
Check out the list of GreenPower Providers (retailers) and their GreenPower Accredited Products.
If you see your current electricity retailer there, simply call and ask them to add GreenPower to your current contract.
Alternatively, you may be able to save money by shopping around. Pick a retailer and ask them for their best GreenPower deal. Don’t be afraid to negotiate.
You can get GreenPower for your home, common areas in apartment buildings and for businesses.
