Clean Energy Program
Subscribing to our Clean Energy program is one of the simplest ways your household can reduce its carbon footprint.
By paying a little extra on your bills, you'll help support Australia's renewable energy industry.
What's the Clean Energy program?
We purchase renewable energy from generators in Queensland through Power Purchase Agreements with sugar mills and other renewable energy generators.

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.
Clean Energy is fully accredited by GreenPower, the government program that sets accreditation and reporting standards for renewable energy products in Australia.
How much does Clean Energy cost?
From 1 August 2016, Clean Energy subscriptions start from $14 per quarter, which buys enough clean energy to power 10% of the average Queensland home.
Subscriptions are prorated based on the number of days your bill covers, so the amount you pay each month or quarter may vary slightly. For example, your $14 quarterly subscription applied to a 90-day bill will be $13.77 or on a 31-day monthly bill it will be $4.74.
All subscription levels are shown below with the amount of Clean Energy they purchase and the greenhouse gas emissions they save.
