How to check if you’re on a GreenPower plan
Many people think they’re on a GreenPower plan but discover they’re on a carbon neutral plan instead, which is inferior.
Dig out your last bill. If you’re on a GreenPower plan, you should see it costed as a separate line item.
Sometimes electricity providers call GreenPower different things like PureEnergy 100%, so you might need to call your provider and double check if you can't see GreenPower on your bill.
How to switch to GreenPower
Most electricity companies sell GreenPower but they might call it different things, like green energy or green choice. And it can be hard to find on websites, which is frustrating. We hope this improves 😊.
There are more than 10 electricity companies that sell GreenPower in Sydney. See the list below.
You can switch in as little as 10 minutes. It depends how much you want to shop around.
Look out for the offical GreenPower logo 👀.

What to watch out for
Carbon neutral electricity plans
Many electricity companies are pushing these at present. What’s the difference? GreenPower electricity plans help get more electricity from wind and solar farms made - they help reduce the source of dirty emissions. Carbon neutral plans don’t.
If you call your current provider and get quoted a much higher rate than you pay now, shop around. Electricity prices change all the time. You should be able to get 100% GreenPower deal for like what you pay now. Note: All electricity prices rose in July 2022.

It’s very easy to switch. You can do it in 5 minutes. Beware of carbon neutral plans. Electricity companies sometimes try to push these. Make sure you get accredited GreenPower.
It’s a nice feeling when you know you’ve selected GreenPower. I was prepared to take a hit and pay more. But when my first bill came I was shocked. It was less than my old plan.
I can't install solar panels on my home, so when I retired, finding the cheapest green plan was important to me. It was the next best thing I could do.
It was a very smooth process from my side and a move I should've made years ago. A great place to start is by checking out The Green Electricity Guide. It gives each of the energy companies a score on how well they're doing and also exposes the big polluters.

With the help of an environmental consultancy, we did a full carbon audit in 2021. I recommend this as a first step for any business. Then we looked at our electricity contract and switched to GreenPower.

An important step towards our 2030 net zero emissions target was the switch to GreenPower. We simply called our electricity provider to switch over our small electricity accounts and within a couple of days we had Greenpower. The cost difference was negligible.
