How is the service funded?

Local Councils each pay an annual membership fee to join, and in exchange residents and businesses receive an extended service – including access to our energy helpline, along with tailored local workshops and events.

As a social enterprise, all Positive Charge fees are invested back into the service to help us bring you and others even more smart energy answers.

Positive Charge is a social enterprise, with a mission and purpose to deliver carbon emission reductions at scale across a number of local government areas. The enterprise was set up with support from Social Traders and an investment from the Moreland Energy Foundation (MEFL). Our core mission is to reduce greenhouse gases, and we remain sustainable and viable through revenue generated from Council subscription fees and income from supplier management fees through the delivery of projects such as bulk-buy programs.
