The National GreenPower Accreditation Program is a national program managed by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
GreenPower is accredited renewable electricity available for consumers that want to voluntarily reduce their emissions from energy use and support Australian renewable energy.
GreenPower assesses renewable energy generators, like solar or wind farms against stringent environmental standards. If a generator receives accreditation, it can create renewable energy certificates with the GreenPower tick.
Electricity retailers and certificate traders offer GreenPower products to their customers. The role of the Program is to ensure that each sold unit of GreenPower is matched with voluntary surrender of certificates. This means that renewable energy is added to the grid on the customer’s behalf.
The GreenPower tick shows which products are accredited through the program:
