Actively support the renewable energy industry with GreenPower.
You can add our GreenPower-accredited product, PureEnergy, to your electricity plan.
When you add GreenPower to your electricity plan, you're supporting the production of electricity from government accredited renewable sources (such as solar, wind and biomass). You can sign up for PureEnergy and add GreenPower to the energy system for all of your electricity usage, or a part of it. This net zero emissions electricity doesn’t feed directly into your power supply because all power sockets connect to the same grid, but an equal amount of renewable energy to your usage (or the part of your usage you elect) is added to the electricity grid on your behalf.
As part of the GreenPower program, electricity retailers are subject to a two-tier audit to ensure no double-counting or greenwashing of environmental benefits occurs. Only renewable energy generators that deliver a net environmental benefit can get accreditation to participate in the program - this means no large-scale hydro and no native forest biomass.
How does it work?
You can choose a percentage of your energy usage (10, 20 or 100%) to be accredited with green energy and EnergyAustralia will buy GreenPower accredited renewable energy on your behalf.
