Our renewable promise

If you’re signed up to our SmilePower Flexi or Bill Boss plan, we make sure that for any electricity you use, an equivalent amount of clean, renewable energy is added to the grid. That’s more than a billion kilowatt hours of renewable energy each year. The (other) best bit? You don’t pay any extra for it.

Get behind a good thing.

The real choice you make when you’re looking at energy suppliers isn’t about where your energy comes from (spoiler: always the same place) it’s about where your money goes.

With us, it’s into the growth of our parent company Hydro Tasmania – the largest generator of renewable energy in Australia.

Get more for solar, too.

If you’re already producing renewable energy with solar, we take our hat off to you (but only briefly, on account of the sun).

Our promise to solar users is that if you’re on our Solar Step-Up plan, you’ll get a better feed-in tariff than the Victorian Government minimum until at least June 2021.

You use the energy, we match it with renewables.

We know that getting behind alternative energy isn’t always straightforward, which is why we offer a renewable promise on some of our plans.

If you’re on SmilePower Flexi or Bill Boss, you can feel good knowing the electricity you use is being matched with an equivalent amount of renewable energy going into the grid.

What is SmilePower?

SmilePower - is our renewable promise, which is that Hydro Tasmania (our parent company), or another electricity generator, will generate an equivalent amount of renewable energy as we bill you for in that same calendar year. The actual electricity supplied to your premises may be from both renewable and non-renewable sources. SmilePower is not an accredited product or part of the Green Power Program.

To make sure we're keeping our promise, an external agency audits SmilePower annually. Their most recent audit is here.
