Greenpeace wants cleaner energy options for all New Zealanders, so we're all being powered from renewable sources and not contributing to climate change, that's why we've developed the Clean Energy Guide for you.

By switching your energy supply you send a strong message to the
energy companies that Kiwis do not want to buy, or promote, dirty
