We recently came across Powershop on the Environment Victoria’s website, Interestingly Powershop was ranked number one in the 2015 Green Electricity Guide from Greenpeace.
According to the article it’s greener for the following reasons:
- Powershop is owned by Meridian Energy, a 100 percent renewable energy company, meaning it invests the money it makes in renewable energy development, not fossil fuels.
- Powershop is 100 percent carbon neutral, so for all the electricity its customers use on the National Electricity market, some of which is unavoidably from non-renewable sources, it buys an equivalent amount of United Nations recognised carbon certificates to offset those emissions.
- Powershop actively supports the Australian Renewable Energy Target (RET) which has been attacked by many of Australia’s other energy retailers.
- Finally, Powershop actively encourages its customers to improve their energy efficiency by using the Powershop app, which informs you how much energy you are using monthly, weekly or even daily. See this video for more information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mntMS_EvICI
