What we do
GreenPower is a government-managed program that lets individuals and businesses support renewable energy generation. When you buy GreenPower from your electricity retailer, you're paying for renewable energy that meets our strict criteria.
Since all electricity goes into the grid to be used, your electricity retailer can’t directly feed the electricity from a renewable generator into your house or workplace. Instead, it’s added to the grid on your behalf. The more people choose GreenPower, the more energy from renewable sources goes into the grid.
GreenPower gives consumers and businesses confidence they are purchasing energy that comes from genuinely renewable sources and ensures the money goes to fund renewable energy projects and jobs.
GreenPower’s Objectives have three parts:
Support the Australian renewable energy sector,
Reduce greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generation, and
Provide consumer choice to purchase renewable energy anywhere on the grid.

Renewable energy accreditation
We ensure that the renewable energy you purchase meets our strict standards, so you can be confident you're making a truly environmentally friendly choice.

Auditing the renewable energy sector
All energy retailers selling GreenPower products are independently audited to make sure your purchase is matched with renewable energy added to the grid - to genuinely support renewable projects.
