Greenchoice

A powerful way to cut greenhouse gas emissions and reduce your contribution to climate change.

Reduce greenhouse gas emissions with Greenchoice

Greenchoice is an ActewAGL program that enables you to play a part in reducing greenhouse gas emissions via clean, green energy.

When you add a Greenchoice fee to your electricity bill, you contribute to the purchase of renewable electricity from government-accredited sources, including wind power, biomass, hydro and solar.

This green energy is fed into the electricity grid, replacing electricity that would otherwise have been generated by fossil fuels.

The renewable energy we source is independently assessed by the Australian government's National GreenPower Accreditation Program—you’ll have peace of mind that it’s truly green, and meets stringent environmental standards.

How much does it cost?

If, and how much, you want to contribute is up to you, and you can choose if you would rather pay a fixed amount each day, or a variable amount based on a percentage of the electricity you use.

  • 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.
