Director of V-Sport Australia Pty Ltd
I was becoming increasingly concerned with the government’s embarrassing attitude to climate change and especially fracking, and read a Get-Up article detailing Powershop’s entry to the NSW electricity market. Electricity is a significant business cost in running a large warehouse and offices, and I was staggered by the difference in unit cost between Powershop and my old provider. This is without taking into account the extra savings available online, the ease of use, and the excellent customer service. I like the honesty of the way prices are presented (inclusive of GST and service fees), the way they reflect the market, the fact that I am making significant savings, and that my electricity is offset by the UN Certified Emission Reduction...

"I feel very strongly about the complete disregard the current government has for climate change. The financial support that it provides to the coal industry through tax breaks is corporate greed and cronyism at it's worst, without any concern for the future of the planet's biodiversity and the environmental legacy we are creating for our children. As a sun drenched continent in the midst of a massive brain drain, when our scientists are being forced overseas through lack of government funding, we should be investing heavily into research and development and leading the way in renewable energy in the global energy revolution. We should not be rewarding energy providers who are trying to quash renewable energy targets for the financial...

Like any major decision, my reasons for switching to a renewable energy provider are based on years of growth and experience; I grew up in a small town in the national park on the far north coast, so I have a very strong bond with nature, complimented by several years of studying an undergraduate degree in environmental science, I have become a passionate, educated, advocate for a broad spectrum of environmental causes. However, change is not always an easy thing to do, and I guess finally it was someone making it easy for me that initiated the switch. If I'd owned my own home, installing solar power would've been easy, there's infrastructure and services available to allow this to happen....

"To me value equates to having my investments align with my values and my approach to the everyday. As a Get Up core member I have followed and supported many campaigns. Last year Get Up promoted the Green Peace’s Green Electricity Guide where Powershop was rated highly based on set criteria. I have welcomed the recent roll out into NSW which has added value to the increasing community empowerment through access to fossil fuel information and tools for divestment action. I became a part of this collective social movement towards a cleaner energy system after having been a customer of both Origin and AGL over the last 7 years since moving out of home. I have now divested all my...

I've been concerned about my dirty energy usage for some years, however, changing energy providers seemed expensive and confusing. When I heard about the GetUp campaign I looked into the pricing and was surprised to know it was competitive. I trusted GetUp had done their homework and Powershop was a legitimately green energy company. Since changing I've been purchasing my power upfront. I like knowing there are no surprise bills coming up but I can go into credit if I need to. I can also wait for especially good deals and buy energy in bulk. Powershop's phone app is easy to use, shows how much advanced and used energy I have purchased and provides detailed information about my daily power...

"A friend of mine told me about Powershop. I switched to Powershop because it saves me money and gives me more clarity around my power usage.  I love being able to check daily usage on my Power up app.  I don't  have to wait 3 months to find out and get a shock at the final cost."
