Green Power

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.

In New South Wales
