The key to getting green power, whether it’s in your home or your office, is knowing what your local authorities and energy suppliers say they are going to do about it.
The Green Power Council has compiled this guide to help.
Understand the source of the power Source of energy is usually sourced from the power station, so the power source is usually known.
If you can’t find the source, the best way to find out is to go to your local council, ask about it, and ask if it is an energy supplier.
Know your local power station The power station will tell you about how much electricity it has and how much it costs.
Find the power supply The power supply is the electricity that is delivered to your home, office or business.
Check for leaks The power supplies usually have a leak, usually a hole in the roof, a short circuit, or some other problem.
Check your home The electrical system is usually connected to your house.
This includes the wall sockets, the thermostat, the water heater and any other devices connected to the house.
If they don’t have a switch, you may need to buy a new one.
Know what the law says You should also check to see if your local authority or energy supplier has passed the appropriate legislation for the power it provides.
This can include things like the maximum number of appliances that can be installed in your house or the types of appliances it recommends.
The rules vary across the country.
Some may not be as strict as you might think.
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (Decc) also has some information on how to find the relevant legislation for your region.
Check the power plant The power plant is a piece of equipment that connects the power to the grid.
This is where the energy comes from and what happens when the energy is used.
Decc has a list of power plants that are eligible to be owned and operated by your local government.
They can be owned by your council, a company or a private company.
Ask your local utility to check your energy usage The utility can tell you how much energy you’re using.
Check if your power supply works The next thing you need to do is check to make sure that the power you have is reliable.
Decec has a number of options for checking whether a power supply has met its statutory requirements.
They include testing the power by sending it to an external lab or checking for problems in the system itself.
If the power is working correctly, you should see a green power indicator.
If not, check to ensure it is working properly.
The easiest way to check that the supply is working is to plug in your power meter to the device and follow the instructions on the device.
The meter will show a green indication.

Check whether the electricity is safe The safest way to use power is to use it in a safe way.
and other resources on green power Sources of power The Green Energy Council has a section on safe and secure energy sources and sources of electricity on its website.
The website also has a checklist to help you find the best source of energy.
It includes energy audits, safe storage schemes and information about how to safely store your energy.
Talk to your neighbours You may want to ask your neighbours about the source and the cost of their power.
Some local councils may have a specific information sheet for each area.
You can also check the energy bills of your local community and contact your local planning department to see what the rates are.
Deceptions around electricity sources There are also a number that people might be misled into thinking are renewable sources, but are actually fossil fuel sources.
Deceptive people use these as an excuse to get energy from other sources.
Some of the biggest energy frauds are the use of coal and gas power stations to power the homes of small businesses or communities in Australia, while others use wind power for household and business power generation.
If someone is trying to cheat you out of a payment or a payment for a power bill, Deceptible has information on ways to stop energy fraud.
You should never pay for energy that you don’t need, and you should never use energy that is not clean or reliable.
You may also want to speak to your energy supplier to get a sense of what the cost is. 12.
