Do you want an energy provider that doesn’t invest in coal, gas, or oil?
How about an energy provider whose profits stay in Australia and are reinvested here?
For many of us in our Port Stephens community, we want our money to stay local to benefit our communities, and not go offshore to multi-national corporations.
For this reason, and many more, EcoNetwork has partnered with Enova Community Energy who are based on the NSW North Coast. Enova works with communities to generate and share their own renewable energy.
We believe that Enova is genuinely committed to a 100% renewable energy future.
Why has EcoNetwork chosen Enova Community Energy?
Enova Community Energy is a not-for-profit social enterprise which …
- does not and will not invest in coal, oil or gas.
- is 100% Australian owned and operated, with 1600 community shareholders.
- reinvests 50% of its profits into Australian communities.
- sources energy from its customers’ rooftops as well as renewable energy generator Diamond Energy.
- is rated by Choice Australia in 2020 as the best electricity provider for customer service and environmental sustainability.

Enova Energy receives 5-star green ranking
Greenpeace has ranked Enova Energy, EcoNetwork’s favoured electricity retailer, equal first among 48 suppliers in its 2022 Green Electricity Guide.
Enova shares the 5-star ranking with partner Diamond Energy, a renewable electricity generator and retailer.
Operating in NSW and southeast Queensland, Enova sources almost all its energy from distributed solar panels from customers, and from Diamond Energy, which operates in VIC, NSW, SA, and QLD. It is also a social enterprise, giving half its profits (after tax and reinvestment) back to the community via energy efficiency, education and community projects. It is not involved in fossil fuel extraction.
Anyone switching their energy supplier to Enova will help EcoNetwork Port Stephens in its grass-roots projects and campaigns. Each customer making the switch just needs to use the code EcoNetwork50 when they sign up and Enova will contribute $50 to EcoNetwork.
Enova scored 100% on Greenpeace’s criteria: providing clean renewable energy, ending coal use by 2030, halting fossil fuel expansion, support for new renewable energy, pollution and environmental harm, and transparency in marketing.
Enova’s partner Diamond Energy is more than 80% owned by its employees and company directors, and only generates renewable electricity, from sources such as wind, solar and bioenergy. It also owns over a thousand rooftop solar installations and is the first retailer to offer an export tariff for home batteries.
The big climate polluters, including Origin Energy, Energy Australia, Powerdirect, ActewAGL and AGL Energy have been ranked last with one star. Powershop, the renewable power retailer taken over amid controversy by Shell, was ranked 10th with 4 stars.
The Green Electricity Guide is a fully independent assessment of Australia’s electricity retailers, to inform consumers about their options to switch to a greener electricity provider. The current version of the guide has been researched and created by Greenpeace with advice and support from the Total Environment Centre.
