BEN is about our local electricity. Join our Blueskin Energy Network, use cleaner, community-oriented, cheaper power and be rewarded for taking action.

We all know when we use electricity changes the climate impact and the cost. Now BEN tells us when this counts so we can act together to create a better world.

Plus... SolarShare and Save
P2 prioritises cheaper renewable power from your local community.

Local people in your community are generating cheap, renewable power on their roofs and in their backyards. They often produce too much power to use themselves.

With P2, a portion of your power will come from people in your neighbourhood exporting their excess solar energy. This makes cleaner, more affordable solar power a viable option, even if you do not currently have solar panels or can’t afford the expense of installing solar apparatus.

If you already have solar panels, fantastic! P2 allows you to sell your excess power back to the grid at a premium rate!

Want to use more local power or simply the cheapest power? BEN will help you do this.

It doesn’t take a lot of effort to start seeing results. People using these daily messages are already earning reward points. Why not join them, and help the environment or your local community without it hitting you in the pocket.
