Alinta Energy: Electricity and gas plans

Alinta Energy is a well-known player in the Australian energy market, with a long history of service, large-scale infrastructure and a commitment to community involvement.

Community Involvement:

Renowned for their commitment to supporting community not-for-profit organisations, Alinta Energy have helped (and continue to help) a wide range of worthy causes. They recently donated $100,000 to The Salvation Army in celebration of achieving one million customers, money that was put to use caring for vulnerable members of the community. Alinta Energy has also implemented a community volunteering program that allows all of their employees to take a day of paid leave every year so they can volunteer their services to local organisations. Alinta also recently announced a new partnership with the Country Education Foundation of Australia (CEF) which provides support for students in remote communities.

Award-Winning

Sustainability

In an effort to minimise their carbon footprint, Alinta Energy have committed to renewable energy outputs of 1,000 megawatts by 2020, increasing to 1,500 megawatts by 2025.
