Switch off Climate Change, Switch to Green Power
GreenPower: buy accredited renewable energy for your electricity needs
Buy 100% GreenPower accredited renewable energy and you could cut your household emissions by up to 50% and reduce your impact on climate change immediately.
The national GreenPower accreditation program ensures renewable energy bought and sold by your energy provider conforms to strict environmental standards.
Buy GreenPower through any retailer and you will:
- cut your greenhouse gas emissions
- reduce your contribution to climate change
- buy energy which has not used native forest wood waste in biomass (organic matter) generators
- buy energy which has not involved redirection of environmental water flows in rivers
Run by the ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, VIC and WA governments, GreenPower's renewable energy generators that have been commissioned or built since the program started in 1997, are helping to develop the renewable energy sector and drive demand for greener energy.
The effect of buying GreenPower is immediate and, as long as you aim to reduce your energy consumption as well, will not cost you a great deal more than what you are currently paying.
North Sydney Council supports GreenPower, purchasing 50% GreenPower for street lighting and main energy using facilities including North Sydney Olympic Pool and North Sydney Council Cambers.
