The team behind Enova Community Energy seems to be working treble overtime to reach their capital raise minimum of $3 million.
They certainly seem willing and able, with experience of the wider world. Their credentials are impressive (see the website).
 
They had wanted to resolve the capital raise before the festive season. But they have had to put back the share-offer closure date twice. The offer will now close at 5pm (AEST) on 17 December 2015.
