Doing our bit for the environment is really important to us, which is why we’ve made sure that all of our tariffs offer 100% renewable electricity. This means that the energy we supply will have been generated from sources such as wind, solar or hydro.
So, it doesn’t matter if you use your electricity to boil your kettle or power your business, you'll be sure you're doing your bit for the environment too.
Best of all, because we include renewable energy in our tariffs at no extra cost, you can help protect the planet, without it costing you the earth.
Every unit of electricity we purchase is backed by Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin certificate, which is usually referred to as a REGO. This is a guarantee that the electricity that we supply to you has been sourced from a carbon neutral, renewable source.
This means that the REGOs we receive are a record of the renewable energy our customers use, which ensures that each unit is replaced by a unit generated by renewable sources.
You can find more information on the REGO scheme here.

One of the unfortunate consequences of producing and refining natural gas is that it also produces carbon emissions. Because of this, we’ve taken steps to reduce our, and our customers', impact on the environment by off-setting the carbon emissions which are produced from the production of their gas.
This means that for every unit of gas you use in your home or business, we’ll do the work necessary to invest in projects around the world which reduce our negative impact on the environment, or support projects which generate renewable energy.
On average, a kWh of gas is responsible for the production of 0.18kg of carbon. An average business customer uses around 44,000kWh of gas, meaning, each year, an average customer’s gas consumption creates around 8 tonnes of carbon.
How much is 8 tonnes? Well, to put it into context, the African Elephant is the world’s largest land animal and weighs between 4-7 tonnes.
