Solar-gardens

Enabling local community renewables

In late 2019, Enova Community delivered Australia’s First Social Benefit Solar Garden

The North Coast Community Housing (NCCH) Solar Garden is a true community energy initiative, with funding coming from hundreds of community members through contribution programs, combined with our Community Partnerships to invest in a positive social and environmental project.

While other solar garden models require solar gardeners to invest, the NCCH Solar Garden is fully funded thanks to Enova’s customer contributions to our Renewable Development Initiative (RDI), NCCH, Splendour in the Grass 'Green Offset’ program, and COREM.

This Solar Garden is a 35kW solar array situated on the roof of NCCH’s administrative building in Lismore. As an Enova customer, NCCH purchases the electricity produced by the array for use onsite. Funds generated from the sale of that solar energy are divided between a range of Solar Gardeners made up of NCCH tenants (to help relieve the financial stress of their energy bills) and four community groups: The Caldera Environment Center, Mullumbimby CWA, Marine Rescue Brunswick, and Federal Tennis Club.

The solar gardeners receive credits on their Enova electricity bill and over its 20-year life span, the project will save approximately $150,000 for the solar gardeners and NCCH.

Helping build environmental resilience by planting trees - 1,000 planted so far!

Last year on National Tree Day, our local tree-planting partner Rainforest Rangers kindly held an Enova tree planting day. Our team and their families were able to help restore a small part of The Big Scrub, here in the Northern Rivers region, on local farmland and creek embankments. The focus was on planting endemic species (trees that are specific to the region).

It was a wonderful, fun-filled day that our team very much enjoyed and we look forward to many more events like that. Amazingly, we were able to plant 1,000 trees!

Trees are vital in the fight against climate change - as they grow, they remove carbon dioxide from the air, store carbon in both themselves and the soil, while also releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. According to the Arbor Day Foundation, in just one year a mature tree will absorb more than 22 Kilos (or 48 pounds) of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere!

Trees also provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s biodiversity - so it goes without saying they're vital to keeping our planet healthy.

Driving education with the support of our energy coaches

Enova Community's Energy Coaches, who are community volunteers, provide home and business energy assessments in their quest to support our communities in reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions.

Our team of Energy Coaches is constantly growing! They are knowledgeable, friendly and keen to help households get control of their energy use.

Since the inception of the program, our coaches have delivered 184 consultations!
