When you purchase GreenPower, you are supporting the production of electricity from renewable sources that meet a strict set of environmental criteria.
GreenPower is renewable energy sourced from the sun, the wind, water and waste.
Companies generate electricity at a range of sites across Australia and supply the electricity to a central power grid.
Our homes and businesses are connected to this grid in order to access electricity.
Traditionally, electricity on the central grid comes from generators that burn coal. Only a small amount (about 8% per cent) comes from renewable sources such as sun, wind, water and biomass waste.
Energy suppliers, such as Enova, who sell accredited GreenPower products, buy electricity generated from Australian accredited renewable energy generators on your behalf and feed it into the National Electricity Grid.
