Purchase Solar wind energy from Local area


Overview

How you can make a difference

Australia’s electricity supply is still predominantly generated by burning fossil fuels.  Our renewable energy supply is slowly increasing, and you can help to create more renewable energy by purchasing LocalPower or GreenPower. 

Australia has renewable energy targets for both small-scale and large-scale renewable energy generation.  Each year new small and large renewable energy generators need to be built to meet these targets.  Every renewable energy generator creates certificates for the renewable energy it generates.  These certificates are tallied up to meet the renewable energy target.

When you purchase LocalPower or GreenPower, you are purchasing these certificates.  By purchasing them you remove them from the renewable energy targets, thus creating a need for more renewable energy generators to be built.
