You support renewables with Amber in two big ways. First of all, at Amber, we only sell power that’s carbon neutral or net-zero emissions through GreenPower renewable energy credits. Carbon-neutral is our default plan, but you can opt for our 100% GreenPower plan instead.
The Amber model also empowers you to shift your usage to times when cheap renewables are coming through the grid. You can track those times through our app, by checking our 12 hour forecast. By doing this, you are creating more demand for renewable generators, helping to move Australia towards 100% renewable energy.
