How does GreenPower work?

GreenPower

GreenPower is government accredited renewable energy sourced from the sun, the wind, water and waste.

When you purchase one of our 20%, 50% or 100% GreenPower products this commits us to purchasing that amount of electricity from the 150 accredited renewable energy generators across Australia, and adding it to the electricity grid on your behalf to offset your electricity use. The government managed GreenPower Program runs a robust and independent auditing process of our GreenPower sales each year to make sure this is the case. These audits are publicly available on the GreenPower website.

What is Enova’s Centre of Excellence?

Enova is committed to instigating change and making sure the Australian energy industry evolves.  We are dedicated to unearthing good ideas, encouraging  ingenuity, harnessing  appropriate technologies, and increasing our knowledge about GreenPower, for the benefit of the whole community. We can he see ourselves as a conduit of information from here and overseas, that benefit us all on our quest towards a renewable energy future.

FIT What’s happening with the Government Solar Bonus Scheme?

The Solar Bonus Scheme ended on 31 December 2016.  Enova is currently offering the best Feed-In Tariff in the market – 12c per kWh for the solar you generate. For more information about the scheme before its closure as well as meter options,  you can view our news post

How is Enova different?

The aim of Enova is to do things differently. Enova brings a new business model to the energy industry – community-owned.  This business model brings exciting possibilities to the sector, particularly in the way we generate and distribute solar and other renewable energy. We encourage and facilitate the development of community-based renewable energy projects, as well as purchase the power created by these initiatives.

Will I benefit from a battery?

No, you don’t need a solar battery, but it is the way of the future.

A battery enables you store the solar energy your roof panels are producing, so you can use it on a rainy day. A battery can also make you completely self-sufficient, providing enough energy for you to get ‘off-the-grid’. Batteries are expensive, but this is one area of solar technology that’s changing rapidly and prices will eventually come down.

Off-grid installations are being used in our area and they are increasingly more financially viable in instances where the cost of installing a new grid connection is prohibitively high. Enova partners with off grid experts who are very experienced in the custom design of off grid systems to give you the very best technical advice if this is what you want to achieve.

What kind of meter do I need?

As an Enova electricity customer you can have any meter. If you are an Enova solar customer, you can have either a gross metering system or a net metering system. 

Depending on what you want from your solar panel system, your meter options vary.

What if I move?

If you move, your agreement with us, including your current Enova Energy Plan will end.
If we are able to supply the area you’re moving to, then we’ll be happy offer you a new Enova Energy Plan at your new home.

How many panels do I need?  

This is one of the most common questions people ask. The answer is: every home and business is different.  There’s also a range of factors to consider.  Use our Solar Calculator to help you determine what you need.
