GreenPower & LGCs guide for business
Primers and Guides | Introductory
The purpose of this guide is to provide an overview of the options for small to medium sized businesses buying between 100,000 kilowatt-hours and 5 gigawatt-hours of electricity per year. If your organisation typically spends more than $150,000 a year on electricity, it’s ideal for you.
You don’t need any prior knowledge to read this guide or to understand the below recording as these resources are targeted towards those with an interest in renewable energy procurement but lack the expertise. However, to get the most out of it it’s best you:
- Understand your company’s annual electricity use.
- Consider your company’s main goals for procuring renewable electricity. For example, managing electricity bill fluctuations or reducing carbon emissions.
We would also like to thank the City of Sydney, CitySwitch and Sustainable Destination Partnership for their leadership in holding this event, and Sophia Sotriffer, former Sustainability Officer, Domain, for her inspiring presentation on how to lead others as part of your renewable energy purchasing process.

The guide defines a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), describes where and when to get a PPA, different pricing models, group buying and presents case studies on successful organisations that have completed PPAs.
