Climate change is one of the biggest issues we face today and electricity generation is the largest single source of emissions in Australia.
In 2020, 84% of Australians wanted action on climate change. But how many people know where their electricity comes from?
Our electricity mix is dominated by fossil fuels
No matter which power company you’re with, the electricity you buy from them comes from the same central pool. For most of Australia - everywhere except the Northern Territory and Western Australia - this is the National Electricity Market (NEM).
The NEM is made up of electricity from a range of sources, some renewable (such as solar, wind and hydro) but mostly non-renewable (such as coal and gas). This fossil fuel generation makes up approximately 70-80% of the electricity supply.
It’s not possible to control which electrons (renewable or non-renewable) are delivered to your home so, unless you have solar panels on your roof, you can’t choose to use renewable electricity over other forms of generation. It’s all mixed in together.
But you can choose GreenPower - 100% renewable energy available for households and businesses
When you choose a GreenPower accredited electricity plan, your electricity usage is matched with the equivalent amount of renewable energy. While it can’t be delivered to your home or business directly, it’s added to the electricity grid on your behalf.
For households and businesses alike, switching to GreenPower is one of the simplest ways to support climate action and do your bit to reduce Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions.
Going green at home doesn’t have to cost the earth
Evergreen is Mojo Power’s GreenPower accredited energy plan.
When you switch your home to Evergreen, you can choose 25%, 50% or 100% GreenPower and we’ll match the equivalent amount of renewable energy from GreenPower generators, like solar farms, on your behalf.
And the best bit? It’s cheaper than some energy retailers’ traditional fossil fuel dominated energy plans.
Hey businesses! Want to know exactly where your electricity is coming from?
Many organisations don’t just want anonymous renewable energy generation, they want to choose specific renewable energy generators to support.
That’s why we developed Mojo Marketplace, making it easy for businesses to offset their electricity usage with locally sourced renewable energy at competitive prices.
Simply sign-up, pick a solar farm, add your energy needs, and buy a supply contract. That’s it.
There are no upfront costs or platform fees and your organisation makes no commitment until you’re ready to buy.
