Buy renewable electricity

Action image
Every time you use electricity in your home greenhouse gases are belched out on your behalf. So buy the clean stuff!

By purchasing 100 per cent Federal Government accredited GreenPower renewable electricity you are instantly switching your electricity dollar from a traditional coal-burning power plant to one of a combination of renewable sources of electricity generation (e.g. wind, hydro, biomass and solar) and stopping approximately 10 tonnes of CO2 / year (for an average home) from being released into the atmosphere.

How to do it now!

Your current energy provider will be able to tell you about the options they provide. Just call the number on your latest electricity bill and tell them you want to switch to 100 per cent renewable electricity (or a percentage). If you are in the mood for a change, find out about the accredited renewable electricity options available from these retailers.

Why is this action important?

Traditional sources of energy release large quantities of CO2 into the atmosphere. This CO2 (and other greenhouse gases) is exceeding nature's ability to absorb (sequester) them, and as a result these gases are accumulating in the atmosphere and are causing the global atmosphere to heat up (global warming). The changing weather patterns that result are in turn putting stress on all other parts of the global ecosystem, systems already under stress from human activity. Effects of this include increasing species extinction, desertification, water shortages, and the direct effect of changing weather conditions and the melting of polar icecaps.
