Adding on GreenPower

You can further support green energy by adding on GreenPower for an extra fee. This is a government initiative supported by Nectr, that will see the provider offset your power usage by purchasing the same amount of renewable energy from an accredited source.

While some providers offer varying percentages of your power to be made up from GreenPower, Nectr only offers 100% clean energy plans.
