Greenchoice — going green with ActewAGL

So what is Greenchoice and how does it work?

How does Greenchoice work diagram. Choose your plan, we buy green energy on your behalf, it will be fed into the grid and clean green energy will be used by everyone.You don't need extra powerlines or installation, a small additional cost on top of your regular electricity bill allows ActewAGL to purchase electricity from renewable sources, like wind power, biomass, mini-hydro and solar. This green energy is then fed straight back into the electricity grid, replacing electricity that would have otherwise been generated by fossil fuels – and that means reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

You don’t even have to be an existing ActewAGL customer to join Greenchoice. Fixed use plans are available to anyone, anywhere in Australia. 

How much does it cost?

There are two ways to buy green energy through Greenchoice. You can opt for a fixed amount each day or a variable amount based on a percentage of the electricity you use.

Fixed-use option

This option means we’ll buy a fixed amount of green energy on your behalf each day. This way, you know exactly how much you will pay for Greenchoice, regardless of your total electricity use.
