|· Are you fed up with government inaction on climate change?
· Do you want to show that acting locally we can do things differently?
· Do you believe that we should be able to use and share local renewable energy?
Not sure what you can do to help in the battle to stop climate change? Changing energy providers to a social enterprise that supports community while helping get more renewable energy into the grid is an easy way to take a stance.
You can switch providers now to Enova Energy … But, if you’d like to do even more – you can also become an Enova Community Energy shareholder. Hurry though, as the shareholder offer closes on 17 November 2018. Or, you can simply help us share the word through emailing this flyer to your friends and associates, or sharing the news on social media as outlined below.
Enova exists for those of us concerned about the environment and who would like to see Australia’s power supply transition to renewables, while supporting local communities.
Enova is set to expand from its Northern Rivers base into all of NSW, Victoria, Queensland and South Australia – replicating its renewable energy model in other regions and towns. To do so, it is expediting its growth through a crowdfunding campaign aimed at raising $3 million.
Enova is Australia’s first community-owned energy retailer and is also a social enterprise, returning 50% of profits after tax and reinvestment back into communities through innovative projects like solar gardens and microgrids, energy efficiency services, energy education and projects such as installing solar on social housing to make renewable energy more accessible for all.
PIONEERING A TRANSITION TO A NEW MODEL
The company’s expansion builds on its successful growth since it began in Northern NSW just two years ago. Enova was funded by over 1000 individuals, families and community organisations who wanted to pioneer a transition in Australia’s energy model with a key community component.
Enova believes that by reclaiming control of energy generation and retail, communities can build social capital, ensure an equitable renewables transition, and forge a pathway towards a cleaner environment for all. Losing confidence in the ability of our governments to deliver these outcomes, we want to take control of our destiny from the ground up.
Enova now has a strong customer base, and has kept money locally in the northern NSW economy that would have usually been spent on big energy retailers outside the region.
