Green energy


By switching to green energy, you’re actively supporting the renewable energy industry.

Power to you

When you purchase PureEnergy, you're supporting the production of electricity from government accredited renewable sources (such as solar, wind, hydro and biomass) over and above mandatory targets.

This clean energy does not feed directly into your power supply, but is added to the electricity grid on your behalf. You will continue to receive your electricity supply from the grid which is made up of a mix of generation sources.

What is GreenPower?  

GreenPower is Australia’s independent government authority helping the nation transition to renewable energy above and beyond legislated targets. GreenPower accredited renewable energy is electricity which produces no net greenhouse gas emissions.

Currently, most electricity comes from generators that burn coal. Only about nine per cent comes from renewable sources such as the sun, wind, water and biomass waste.

GreenPower audits and accredits GreenPower suppliers and generators to ensure the renewable electricity you buy through EnergyAustralia meets strict environmental standards.

The power to choose

If you’re an existing EnergyAustralia customer, you can choose the amount of accredited green energy you’d like EnergyAustralia to buy on your behalf, whether that’s 10, 20 or 100 per cent of your electricity bill.

Simply contact us to add one of our PureEnergy options to your existing electricity plan with us. Remember, the more green energy you select, the more you’ll be helping the renewable energy industry flourish in Australia.

Everything else stays the same

Your electricity supply does not change when you switch to green energy –
you still get the same reliability of supply with the added assurance that you are doing your bit to reduce the impact of electricity generation on our environment.
