Green Power Business Logo - 100 percent

GreenPower

Energy Action has committed to displacing its business electricity usage across its offices with certified renewable energy that has zero net greenhouse gas emissions. For this reason, all of our electricity contracts are 100% GreenPower.
This demonstrates our commitment to the renewable energy sector. Through purchasing GreenPower electricity, our provider in turn purchases the equivalent amount of electricity from accredited renewable energy generators.
