Australian government accredited renewable energy
In Australia, the majority of electricity is generated by burning fossil fuels. Only 13% of the nation's power comes from renewable energy sources such as hydropower, wind, solar and bioenergy.
The Australian GreenPower Program was established to give electricity users the opportunity to purchase clean renewable electricity. The additional demand creates incentives that support the development of new renewable energy infrastructure in Australia.
Why buy GreenPower from Climate Friendly?
Unlike most providers, Climate Friendly is accredited to supply GreenPower in all Australian states and we can always tell you exactly which facility (e.g. wind farm or solar plant) your GreenPower has come from. We can often supply GreenPower from a particular location or technology, to align with your preferences and our rates are cheaper than those offered by electricity providers.
Why use GreenPower?
Not everyone can install solar panels on the roof of their business or home. If you want to reduce your emissions and contribute to growing the share of clean renewable energy in Australia, you can purchase GreenPower. You can think of it as putting clean, renewable energy back into the grid to replace the fossil fuel energy you have used.
GreenPower is considered carbon neutral electricity under the Australian National Carbon Offset Standard, and can be used to achieve NCOS Carbon Neutral certification. GreenPower purchases can also be used to report reduced or zero Scope 2 emissions under global reporting standards such as the Carbon Disclosure Project and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

Supporting Australia's renewable energy sector
Businesses and organisations that purchase GreenPower are able to receive some additional benefits that are designed to recognise their environmental stewardship.
For example, businesses that purchase 10% or more of their annual electricity usage are eligible to use the GreenPower Customer Logo on their corporate and marketing materials, and can be featured on the government GreenPower website. Business customers that purchase 50% or more of their annual consumption can also have their business logo featured on the homepage.
GreenPowered businesses and organisations simply need to apply to use the logo via the GreenPower website.
And that's just a few of the benefits for businesses and organisations purchasing GreenPower accredited renewable energy through Climate Friendly. Check out the Benefits page on their website to see more.
