Does Red Energy offer any other renewable options?

Yes! Red Energy is one of the major renewable energy providers in Australia. If you want to save money, or the world, by going green, Red Energy has options to suit.

Solar

Get in touch with Red Energy to find out whether solar is a good fit for your home. It can help you sort through the options and recommend ideal solutions to balance the costs and benefits of having home solar power.

  • All Red Energy solar options include anti-reflective and anti-soiling surfaces to reduce power loss and get more performance out of your photovoltaics, exceptional performance in low-light conditions and up to 12 year product warranty.
  • Red Energy can hook your residency up with home battery storage so solar energy can keep powering your home even when the sun goes down, or run appliances in a blackout. This lithium-ion home battery will store energy created during the day for later use to reduce your reliance on the grid.
  • Choose home solar installation, battery storage, or both.

Learn more about how solar power would work in your home, including how much it would cost, how long it would take to do and how much money you could save, by requesting a call back from a Red Energy expert.

Accredited GreenPower

The accredited GreenPower scheme is a way of separating more advanced and legitimate renewable energy technologies from the less effective ones, and making it easier for Australians to enjoy the benefits renewables can offer. Accredited GreenPower energy must be produced in line with specific protocols and to high environmental standards.

  • When you get energy from the grid it’s a combination of renewables, coal and whatever else is out there. When you use GreenPower, the power company purchases additional renewable energy and feeds it into the grid on your behalf to compensate for emissions and bring you closer to sustainability.
  • Red Energy offers GreenPower to customers in New South Wales and Victoria only.
  • In addition to standard costs, GreenPower costs an extra 5.83 cents/kWh in GST.
  • To switch to GreenPower, existing Red Energy customers will need to sign up again for the GreenPower option. New customers simply need to include it as an extra or select a plan that comes with it.

Red Energy allows you to pick the option that’s most convenient for you, or opt for their in-house payment system called Evenpay. You’ll never be locked into any one option for long, so feel free to switch it up until you find the best way to pay.

  • Pay your bills online quickly and easily.

  • Use BPAY, banking apps, PayPal and other online portals. Your Red Energy bills will have all the information you need to do this.

You also have other options to consider:

  • Depending on your plan, you may select monthly or quarterly billing cycles in addition to standard options.
  • Consider Evenpay to smooth out your bills and make them more equal. Evenpay will roughly average out the cost of your energy bills over the course of a year so you pay the same amount each time without any unpleasant surprises.

    I was told there was no exit fee for Red. I am concerned that my private info is floating around with so many suppliers in this game?

      Hi Wayne,

      Thanks for your question.

      That is partly true because some Red Energy plans as listed on our table above do not charge exit fees.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
