Electricity suppliers may not always operate in a way that is equally beneficial to customers, networks and the environment.

However, with the advent of more sustainable or clean generation and supply options, consumers these days are more able to choose one which is more aligned with their ideas.

A simple switch to a different company could mean that you are getting a better deal for your energy consumption, or it could see you making a choice for a greener electricity industry.

The Climate Spectator reported today (May 2) that a proposed wind farm project in New South Wales' Rugby area could provide clean energy for up to 74,500 homes if it is approved by the state government.

Although state guideline alterations and community concerns have meant that the wind farm proposal has had to reduce its scope - from 90 to 52 turbines - the companies involved in the project are still convinced of the benefits it will provide.

"If approved by the NSW government, the Rugby Wind Farm would inject over $95 million into the Rugby and Boorowa regions of NSW over the life of the wind farm," Chris Judd, managing director of REpower Australia, told the publication.
