Have you heard the news? Eco-friendly energy retailers Powershop and Diamond Energy have each picked up a super impressive five star rating in Greenpeace’s 2018 Green Energy Guide.

And these renewable energy options aren’t just good for the earth, they’re good for your hip pocket too. In fact, Powershop said that it recently shaved around $70 a year off Victorian customers bills thanks to securing cheap wind and solar power, showing that renewable energy can benefit your bottom line.

If you’re environmentally minded and want to choose a renewable energy option to show it, then check out some of our picks from the Mozo database.
