In that time, the company has rapidly grown its customer base by offering affordable and renewable energy products in New South Wales and Queensland. Building on this success, Nectr will expand its business into South Australia in the near future.

These products and the companys Climate Active and Carbon Neutral certifications make Nectr one of only four Australian energy retailers that provide 100% carbon neutral energy plans.
Also, Hanwha Energy Australia is well into development of the Gregadoo and Jindera solar farms, which will eventually provide power to over 60,000 Nectr customers. Construction for these farms is expected to commence soon.
