Your electricity will be supplied directly from the National Electricity Market (NEM) (aka "the grid"). As the electricity grid is a pool of electricity from a range of sources, including coal-fired generation, it is not possible for Nectr to claim that our electricity comes from one particular source.
The Nectr Friends Clean plan is “100% Carbon offset”. This means we offset all carbon emissions generated from a customer’s energy usage through buying carbon offset certificates/units from local and overseas projects that can include tree planting, land management or investment in renewable power developments in developing countries. 1 carbon offset certificate = 1 tonne of CO2-e.
The Nectr GreenPower plan displaces 100% of your household's electricity usage with certified renewable energy that have zero net greenhouse gas emissions. As well as reducing your impact on the environment, by becoming part of the GreenPower community, you will be helping to support Australia's renewable energy sector. That’s because the bulk of the premiums you pay for GreenPower go directly back to the GreenPower certified electricity generators.
Further, as part of our commitment to a renewable energy future, our owner is investing in the Barcaldine (Queensland) and Bannerton (Victoria) solar farms. They are also focussed on expanding their solar farm investments and plan to build two new solar farms in NSW. To follow their progress with this follow us on Facebook or Instagram.
