Where does Clean Energy come from?
Clean Energy is drawn from three renewable energy sources – wind, hydro and biomass. Each source produces zero net greenhouse gas emissions, which is great for reducing your impact on the environment.
We purchase renewable energy from sources located all over regional Queensland, including wind farms at Windy Hill near Ravenshoe and on Thursday Island, hydro stations at Paradise Dam and Tinaroo Dam, and biomass plants at a number of sugar mills.
Ergon Energy is the largest purchaser of renewable energy generated in Queensland through Power Purchase Agreements with sugar mills and other renewable energy generators.
How can I tell my customers about my subscription?
Clean Energy is fully accredited by GreenPower, the government program that sets accreditation and reporting standards for renewable energy products in Australia.
If you subscribe to 10% or more Clean Energy, your business may be entitled to use the GreenPower logo on company signage and marketing materials, to promote your commitment to the environment.
