Enova Energy begins roll out
BYRON Shire based Enova Energy began rolling out energy plans to shareholders and early supporters this week, signing up its first customers.
As part of the initial roll-out, Enova announced a unique energy plan to establish a renewable energy initiative to support communities who want to build their own renewable energy generation.
Enova has also approached more than 1500 supporters in advance of its full launch to the public, which is expected in about three weeks.
"We are excited by the response we have had so far, which has returned a 100% sign-up rate of new customers approached," Enova CEO Steve Harris said.
"We are particularly heartened by the number of people who have chosen our unique plan, Enova Renewable Development Initiative."
Enova will also introduce a Renewable Energy Development Fund that will see the company put aside 13% of a customer's standard bill, which will then be used to assist communities with the initial development.
"In effect customers are foregoing a discount to help get local renewable energy off the ground in this region," Mr Harris said.
All Enova staff, energy consultants and coaches as well as solar experts and installation technicians are based at the company's head office in Byron Bay.
Enova Energy will be staging a series of events throughout the region over the coming weeks.
