Solutions to our changing climate are here now – and Enova is one of them!

Cassandra Sheppard

In these current uncertain times of a changing climate, Enova Community Energy is even more determined to see its purpose and positive impact reach as many communities across NSW and beyond as possible.


Enova customer Damon Gameau: Adopt climate change solutions rapidly

As film director Damon Gameau says in his film 2040, the solutions to climate change already exist. We just need to adopt them broadly and as soon as possible.

Enova was formed to be one of the solutions. As Australia’s first community-owned electricity provider, Enova was built from the ground up to empower local places to generate, store and share their own energy.

Here’s a message from Damon about Enova and our offering:

In fact, Damon himself has switched his household’s electricity to Enova, in keeping with his mission of getting everyone to take urgent action now – with the solutions that exist now.

To join the waitlist for Sydney, Newcastle, and Wollongong and Sydney for when we launch early October, enter your details here and be in with the chance to win $1,500 worth of community-owned electricity.


Community and climate impact

Enova creates community and climate change impact through our commitment to ethical energy and via our social enterprise model. That’s right – we’re an electricity company that’s also a social enterprise!

Our community owned energy company redirects profits back into our not-for-profit arm for community energy projects, like microgrids and solar gardens.

This is how we’re turning Australia’s outdated and coal-dependent energy system around and bringing power back to the people.

  1. Could you please keep us up to speed with Battery development and prices and thoughts on going “off grid” . If we do Disconnect from the grid do we still have to pay a monthly fee for poles and wires regardless ???

    1. Hi Tim, thanks for your comment. This is something we're going to be writing about more as we move forward. Also happy to put you in touch with one of our expert volunteer energy coaches who can answer your questions directly. We've passed on your email address and someone will be in touch.

  2. Sounds a great initiative however i live in the bush out of Armidale (NSW, 2350). is this a supplier i can utilise?
    thanks for any feedback. kind wishes, Francesca Stahlut

    1. Hi Francesca, thanks for your message. Yes you can already join Enova - we already cover all of regional NSW. You can switch online at or give us a call on (02) 5622 1700 and our team will handle everything. Thanks for your interest.

  3. Hi Francesca, it's interesting one of the options being looked for electricity generation for small regional areas is the de-centralised model again. I'm from Tenterfield in NSW (up the road from Armidale) and the old 'Power House" building which housed the Council owned generator to run the township and surrounding area still stands.

    It would be great to see the Town disconnect from the grid and an once again become self sufficient although this time with an enviro friendly combination of sustainable, solar, wind and storage again owned by the community either through Council or a Co-op. Lower cost cost for consumers and a consistent revenue stream for the local owners a win/ win for Community.

    Great to see Enova advocating for these types of outcomes.

    1. Hi Greg, Thanks for your message and comments. It's absolutely possible for towns to co-create their community energy projects. A great way to start is to look at community engagements models so that everyone can get together and decide what direction the town wants to go in. Our friends at the Community Power Agency (CPA) have a map of Community Energy groups in Australia. We highly recommend connecting with a group near you.
      If you can't find a group near you, the Community Power Agency has a guide on How to Start a Community-Owned Renewable Energy Project. Thanks for getting in touch and all the best 🙂
