Joel has produced a summary of Green Power suppliers from www.greenpower.com.au/go/suppliers
A quick summary
- Country energy seems middle of the pack.
- Origin offers 100% wind, not yet available here
- Integral has very high solar component, not yet available here
- Inland energy looks pretty good : very high wind component
- Cost of each would need analysis
More info is attached ...
Cut and pastes from search NSW, sorted by solar component. Sorted by Wind component : Country Energy (our default supplier) comes out third on the list, which is higher than I had expected.
