Shell takeover of Powershop infuriates green consumers

By Henrietta Cook: November 24, 2021 — 5.46pm

Consumers are abandoning online green energy darling Powershop Australia after Shell announced earlier this week that it would acquire the electricity and gas retailer and 185,000 of its customers.

Political activist group GetUp, which previously encouraged tens of thousands of its followers to switch to Powershop to support cleaner energy, is furious about the $729 million deal. It described Shell as “one of the worst climate polluters in the world”.

Shell is currently appealing against a Dutch court ruling that ordered it to cut its emissions faster, finding its current activities threatened the “right to life”.
