Social housing solar gardens provide community organisations and people on low incomes who live in social housing with tax-free credits on their electricity bill.
Enova’s first social housing solar garden is located on the roof of the North Coast Community Housing office in Lismore.
The financial benefits of the solar energy generated are distributed throughout the community to social housing tenants and community organisations.
This social housing solar garden is an important innovation toward ensuring the benefits of solar energy are accessible by all.
This model has paved the way for Enova Community to work directly with other social housing organisations – so that more low income people living in social housing can participate in the transition to renewable energy and benefit from solar panels.
If you're a social organisation and would like to discuss using your roofspace as a solar garden host site please contact Enova's Community Manager Bec Talbot on firstname.lastname@example.org.
