Pacific Blue review
Pacific Blue will favour those looking to reduce their environmental impact over having an electricity plan that comes with low prices or a lot of bells and whistles such as a rewards program or an app to track energy usage.
The electricity retailer's parent owns and operates a mix of wind, solar and hydro generation assets. So while it can't guarantee your home is powered by clean energy, you're at least able to support renewable energy generation in Australia.
The main caveat is this may come at a cost as Pacific Blue's plans are a fair bit more expensive than those from other energy providers in Finder's database for Victoria.
Good to know: Pacific Blue launched Tango Energy in 2012 to offer energy plans to households in NSW and VIC.

We normally look at The Green Electricity Guide by Greenpeace in order to work out the green credentials of different providers.
However, Pacific Blue was not included on the list as it's fairly new to the market.
It also doesn't offer GreenPower, which is a government initiative allowing the retailer to measure and match your power usage with renewable energy to the grid.
But to its credit, it owns and operates green energy sources as well as offers 100% carbon neutral plans at no extra cost.
Now that you've read our review of Pacific Blue, you can check out its plans once again before signing up. If you're still unsure, you can compare other energy providers on Finder before committing to a decision.
