Join one of Australia’s top 3 greenest power companies

When Greenpeace compared energy companies in their 2022 Green Electricity Guide, we scored a whopping 4.5 stars. From our renewable-generating parent company to plans offering GreenPower, we’ve got a whole lotta green going on.

Get behind a good thing.

The real choice you make when you’re looking at power companies isn’t about where your energy comes from (which is always the same place – you probably know it as ‘the grid’) – it’s about where your money goes.

With us, it’s into the growth of our parent company Hydro Tasmania – they’re the largest generator of renewable energy in Australia and backed by the Tassie government. Hydro and Momentum are both Australian-owned and operated, so you’re supporting Aussie jobs too.

What are you doing about renewable energy?

We’re proud to be owned by Hydro Tasmania – Australia’s largest renewable generator.

Whoever you buy your energy from, it always comes from the same place – you probably know it as ‘the grid’. Electricity on the grid comes from a whole range of sources, both renewable and non-renewable.

Our relationship with Hydro means that even though you’re buying the same energy, you’re still doing a bit of good for Aussie renewables.

What is GreenPower?

GreenPower is a government program that lets power companies buy renewable energy on a customer’s behalf. It was designed to give Aussies a straightforward way of investing in renewables by adding a nominated contribution directly to their power bills.

You can read more about GreenPower on our blog.

Momentum Energy is an approved provider under the National GreenPower Accreditation Program.

What’s the difference between GreenPower and Momentum’s renewable promise?

GreenPower is all about investing in new renewable projects. For it to be eligible for GreenPower, your power company has to buy energy from a renewable generator built after 1997.

But some of the renewable energy we buy is from our parent company Hydro Tasmania – and their generators have been operating for more than a hundred years, which means the energy we buy from them doesn’t count as GreenPower.

So we made a renewable promise instead – if your plan has it, however much electricity you use, we’ll make sure that enough renewable energy is produced each year to cover it. An external agency audits our renewable promise every year. Their most recent audit is here.

Another key difference between GreenPower and our renewable promise is that GreenPower allows your home or business to formally claim that some, or all (depending on the percentage you choose to buy) of your electricity has been offset with renewable energy.
