What is SmilePower?
We call our Energy Bundle SmilePower. By choosing SmilePower we aren't suggesting you receive renewable energy to your home or business, but we do promise that any profits we make go back into maintaining Hydro Tasmania's renewable energy future, which should give you something to smile about.
Momentum Energy will ensure that Hydro Tasmania or another electricity generator generates an equivalent amount of Renewable Energy in the National Electricity Market within the same calendar year that we bill you for your purchase of SmilePower.

Does SmilePower deliver renewable energy straight into my home?
That would be wonderful! But that's not how it works. Electricity to your premises comes from the National Electricity Market (NEM). The NEM comprises energy from both renewable and non-renewable sources. However, with SmilePower Momentum energy will ensure that Hydro Tasmania or another electricity generator generates an equivalent amount of Renewable Energy in the National Electricity Market within the same calendar year that we bill you for your purchase of SmilePower.

What about greenhouse gas reductions?
SmilePower is a non-accredited product, as most of Hydro Tasmania's power stations were constructed prior to 1997. This means that SmilePower doesn't contribute to new renewable generation. Customers can't claim greenhouse gas emission reductions as a result of SmilePower energy purchases.
