Going green is starting to look more and more appealing, with renewable energy sources like solar and wind becoming increasingly competitive, as households electricity bills skyrocket.

A recent report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), predicted that by 2020, electricity generated from renewable sources like wind and solar PV will be “consistently cheaper” than that generated using most fossil fuels.

“This news means environmentally-minded Aussies can follow their hearts to a green energy plan without worrying about being hit in the hip pocket in return,” said Mozo Director Kirsty Lamont.

“Choosing the right energy plan means not only can you do your part for the environment, but you may be able to slash your energy bill while you’re at it.”

So if you’re ready to go green and save some cash while you’re at it, check out some environmentally friendly energy plans below:
