"Does your power company support solar?
Victorian energy retailers say they are committed to renewable energy yet remain some of the heaviest polluters in our country. In fact, some openly discourage the uptake of solar. It’s time to make big energy take notice of solar customers - pronto!
Make the switch to a retailer that supports solar - it takes less than five minutes.
Standing up for renewables and the rights of solar owners is our bread and butter at Solar Citizens, and that’s why we’re partnering with Ethical Switch. Ethical Switch ranks electricity providers by their green credentials, and helps get a better return for solar customers too.
Their two highest rated electricity providers, Powershop and Diamond Energy, are both 100% renewable and are 100% committed to solar customers. If you were lucky enough to get the ‘Transitional’ or ‘1 for 1’ feed-in tariff now is the time to start thinking about how to maximise the benefit of your system when these schemes run out at the end of this year. If you switch now you won’t lose any benefits.
Take five minutes now to switch online to a pro-solar power company today.
Both providers offer feed-in tariffs well above the national average: Diamond Energy offers an 8c/kWh FIT and Powershop offers a 7.2c/kWh FIT.
These two companies operate with a whole different mindset than other power retailers: they welcome solar customers and offer tips for getting the most out of your solar. In other words, they display the kind of thinking that the rest of energy sector needs to adopt.
Plus, for each customer that switches, Solar Citizens receives a $50 donation that will give us the resources to fight harder on our campaigns like a fair price for solar and 100% renewable power by 2030 all across Australia.
Ethical Switch takes all the hassle out of switching to renewable-friendly power company - switch here in the time it takes to make a cup of tea."
