GreenPower is government accredited renewable electricity, generated from a source like solar or wind and built since 1997.
When you choose GreenPower electricity we'll have the percentage of electricity usage you’ve chosen matched into the electricity grid with electricity from GreenPower accredited renewable sources.
Only products that meet the rules and guidelines of the Government's GreenPower Program can carry the GreenPower ‘tick’ logo. So if you see that tick, it’s a guarantee that our GreenPower products are fully accredited by the Government.
GreenPower prices will change on 1 January 2016 for our Origin customers. Prices will increase for all GreenPower electricity product options that are shown as additional c/kWh charges on your Origin bill. GreenPower electricity charges are in addition to electricity usage charges.
There’s no change to Green Gas prices on 1 January.
For GreenPower price change details please see the pricing tables on this page.
Our GreenPower prices are going up because there’s been a rise in the market price of renewable energy.
Our GreenPower products are competitively priced, even with this price change. Green energy is a great way to reduce your impact on the environment. As Australia’s leading green energy provider, we offer a choice of green energy options starting from 25% GreenPower electricity for a fixed additional charge per week.
For most customers, you’ll see a message on your bill from the date the price change takes effect (1 January 2016). You’ll receive the message on the first bill after that date.
Or if you’re a GreenPower customer in Queensland on one of Origin’s market contract offers, you’ll receive a letter or email to let you know about the price change at least 10 business days prior to 1 January 2016 - the date the price change takes effect.
We review our prices from time to time, usually in January.
