Commercial & Industrial (Large Customers)

We provide energy solutions delivered with passion, expertise, and decency.

Snowy Hydro’s Commercial and Industrial Business (C&I) is proud to support customers on their decarbonisation journey by retailing market-leading renewable energy products. The C&I business, delivered through our new C&I brand Snowy Energy, provides electricity and gas products to large Australian businesses across the National Electricity Market (NEM). Our C&I customers have large energy usage, generally more than 100 MWh of electricity and/or 1TJ of gas annually.  

Our customers include some of Australia’s largest shopping centres, universities, banks and property managers. 

Sustainability and our Commercial
and Industrial Business

Our C&I renewable energy product sales displaced
880 ktCO2e from the NEM in FY23.

Our C&I business enables Snowy to enter into Power Purchasing Agreements (PPAs) with wind and solar developers/investors. These long-term agreements, some up to 25 years, provide financial security to investors to develop more renewable projects contributing to a diversified and resilient energy landscape in Australia. 

Snowy’s wind and solar PPAs further diversify the energy grid, contributing to a reliable and resilient power supply. We are reducing reliance on traditional energy sources and helping Australia transition towards a cleaner, more sustainable and environmentally friendly future.

We have directly procured 1,674 MW of solar and wind through PPAs, equivalent to displacing ~4.8 million tonnes of CO2 annually from the NEM. 

Through our assets and investments in dispatchable capacity, we are enabling more than 20% of additional wind, solar and hydro generation in the NEM. The new wind and solar generation we are enabling is equivalent to displacing more than 33 million tonnes of CO2 annually. This equates to a 28% reduction in NEM emissions from 2022 levels and approximately 13% of Australia’s total emissions reduction target for 2030.
