What is renewable energy?
Renewable energy is generated from resources that are replenished naturally, such as light, wind and water. SmilePower is renewable energy derived from a hydro system that has been powering Tasmania for nearly 100 years. Today, Hydro Tasmania is the largest generator of clean energy in Australia.
How does SmilePower differ from other products?
Hydro Tasmania has almost 100 years of experience in generating renewable energy. The hydro-electric power plants of Hydro Tasmania take the energy from water and turn this energy into electricity, which is distributed via the National Electricity Market. Since the electricity to your premises comes from the National Electricity Market and the National Electricity Market is comprised of energy generated from both renewable and non-renewable sources, this does not mean that you will receive renewable energy directly to your premises. We will ensure that the equivalent amount of renewable energy matching the energy that you use will be fed into the National Electricity Market by Hydro Tasmania, or another electricity generator, within the same calendar year that you are billed for your purchase of SmilePower.
SmilePower is a non-accredited product as most of Hydro Tasmania’s power stations were constructed prior to 1997. This means that SmilePower does not contribute to new renewable generation. No claims can therefore be made by customers in regard to reduction in greenhouse gas emissions as a result of energy purchased as SmilePower.
