Enova Community Energy celebrates three years!

Enova Community Energy has just celebrated three years in operation as Australia’s first community-owned electricity company on Friday, 31 May and continues to make history with ground-breaking initiatives.

On Tuesday, NBN News visited the office to meet with CEO, Felicity Stening to see why householders and businesses across rural NSW are switching away from traditional electricity providers to this social enterprise.

 

Unlike many other energy retailers, Enova sources most of its power from renewable local sources such as rooftop solar. As well as championing renewables, Enova is inspiring and helping communities to become energy self-sufficient (through projects such as microgrids), which in turn helps keep millions of dollars in local economies.

Enova will also return 50% of its profits (after tax and reinvestment) to community projects that help all residents, regardless of income, to get affordable renewable energy, along with education on energy efficiency to save money. Some of the projects Enova have completed include facilitating solar panels for low income homes in conjunction with North Coast Community Housing, along with home energy audits to help people reduce their energy consumption.

If you're interested in switching to Enova, speak to one of our energy consultants on 02 5622 1700 or email info@enovaenergy.com.au. Alternatively, you can use our new bill comparison tool to upload your recent bill and see how it compares with Enova's energy plans.

  1. Are you interested in establishing a small solar plant on our farm at Ghinni Ghi. We are Enova customers.

    1. Hi Mark and Carol, thank you for your comment. We will contact your privately regarding this enquiry.

  2. Dear Team 'enova', thank you for drawing my attention to the recent NBN report. It clearly contained the brilliance of a local, principal-driven industrial initiative.
    Praise to those who had the original vision; praise to those who have nurtured the intricate progress; and praise to those who continue to build and sustain a 'light on the hill'.
    I was drawn to 'enova' by it's 'co-operative principles', its 'community enterprise' and the local service and support.
    Working with a 'community' Credit Union for 20 years, how pleased I would be to "see BCU Members from Port Macquarie to the Sunshine Coast closely engaged with 'enova'!" Rather than Credit Union's looking and acting more and more like banks, such an engagement would 'resurrect' its original intentions. (Just a thought!)
    Thank you'TEAM ENOVA' - It's a truly amazing story!
    Kenneth (Ken) Palmer
