I just gave myself the best ever Christmas present. I invested in Enova. What a thrill!

If this community-owned renewable energy provider can get up and running, it would mean taking the power back to the people, but it needs lots of individuals to join together to make this happen. Thursday is the deadline to raise the seed money and they are nearly there, but not quite.

Please consider our future and the future of generations to come and invest in something really worthwhile. Money is power and power should be spent wisely. How wonderful would it be if our shire led the way in Australia for community owned energy companies?

Shine on Byron Shire, with our own power! Contact them at enovaenergy.com.au.
