‘Disgusted’ Powershop customers abandon ship over Shell takeover


‘Disgusted’ Powershop customers abandon ship over Shell takeover

: November 23, 2021

When oil giant Shell announced it was buying renewable electricity provider Powershop Australia on Monday, many of its 185,000 customers instantly switched providers.

Powershop Australia launched in 2012 and had gained a reputation for being 100 per cent carbon neutral – a credential many now see as tainted by the Shell acquisition.

“I was just disgusted and amazed that they thought they could get away with that, without people caring or noticing,” former customer Kristen O’Connell told The New Daily.

“I think it shows a real disdain for all the people who’ve been using Powershop because we don’t want to destroy the planet.”

“Shell’s actions and their values are fundamentally at odds with everything we stand for,” the group said in a statement.
