As the ACT leads the country’s renewable energy transition, Australian energy retailer Nectr has announced its entry into the nation’s capital, offering ACT residents cleaner, greener and more affordable energy options.

With a mission to clean up energy to make it better for everyone, Nectr enters the energy market in the ACT with a promise of competitive energy rates and plans that reduce carbon emissions into the atmosphere and support Australia’s renewable energy sector.

“Canberra’s leadership as the first city in the Southern Hemisphere to purchase its energy from 100% renewable sources[4] is progressive and forward-thinking. That’s how we see Nectr’s role in supporting the energy industry’s transition to net zero,” Nectr managing director Andrew Butler said.

“Our business is born digital, which means that we can quickly adapt to the integration of renewables into the energy system to manage consumption demand and improve our efficiencies and sustainability.”

With Climate Active certification and GreenPower accreditation, Nectr is one of a select few Australian retailers to offer both 100 per cent carbon neutral and 100 per cent GreenPower plans.

“Nectr offers 100 per cent carbon neutral plans as standard, and we challenge other retailers to do the same. Our customers want to know that the businesses they support can help them to reduce their impact on the environment, and Nectr is ready to step up to their calls,” Butler said.

“Nectr believes that every household should have access to affordable energy that suits their consumption habits, while also driving Australia’s renewable energy transformation.” 

ACT residents can now access Nectr’s cleaner, greener energy plans, including:

  • Nectr 100% Clean – A 100 per cent carbon neutral electricity plan with fixed energy rates for 12 months that makes a positive impact on the environment.
  • Nectr 100% GreenPower – A plan that displaces 100 per cent of a household’s electricity usage with certified renewable energy and supports Australia’s renewable energy sector.
  • Nectr 100% Clean Solar – 100 per cent carbon neutral plan for households that have existing solar PV systems of 10kW or less.
  • Nectr Super Solar – 100 per cent carbon neutral and an ideal FiT plan for households with mid-range usage and exports up to 50 per cent of capacity.
