Start-up north coast renewable energy retailer Enova says, with its share deadline looming, it has almost met its major capital milestone of $3 million required to operate.
Enova’s chair Alison Crook AO, told The Echo Enova Energy is well on its way now to making Australian history by being the first community owned electricity supplier.
‘But there is still time to be a part of this important history; the final close is 5pm (AEST) this Thursday, December 17 2015. Every share purchased is important for Enova to have a strong foundation to strengthen its success’, she said.
Another important goal was reached, Ms Crook said, with the majority of shares applicants – nearly 75 per cent – being northern rivers residents. ‘We are determined to take control of our renewable energy future, providing local jobs, enabling new technologies and community benefit projects across the northern rivers region,’ said Ms Crook.
And in recognition of Enova’s importance on a national scale, Ms Crook says the remaining 25 per cent of share applicants have come from every state and territory in Australia.
‘In fact it could be said that the high ambitions of the northern rivers community could lead the way in Australia. Once Enova’s model is proven, we look forward to working with like-minded communities across Australia,’ she said.
