The primary aim of the government managed GreenPower Program is to help drive investment in new renewable energy generation in Australia (post 1997).
It is one of Australia’s most popular forms of voluntary renewable energy.

The Program allows households and businesses to proactively displace all, or some, of their electricity usage with government certified renewable energy. This renewable energy is then added to Australia’s electricity grids on their behalf.

By purchasing GreenPower, customers are helping to support Australia’s renewable energy sector (and the jobs it provides), and are reducing their impact on the environment at the same time.
