Northern Rivers locals have been barred from purchasing an electric vehicle due to the cost and can now access more affordable EVs through Enova Community Energy’s bulk purchase in partnership with the Good Car Co.
The Good Car Company partners with social enterprise Enova community energy to deliver the Northern Rivers EV bulk buy campaign.
Good Car co-founder Anthony Broese of Groenou says Goodcar.co is working to decarbonise transportation by providing access to affordable electric vehicles. Hundreds of Australians are now driving 100 percent electric cars because of the bulk buying campaigns. The EV bulk purchase provides more affordable access to new Polestar 2 and Hyundai EVs, as well as imports of pre-owned Nissan Leafs.”
Australia’s third largest source of greenhouse gas emissions
Felicity Stening, CEO of Enova Community Energy, says transportation is Australia’s third largest source of greenhouse gas emissions and cars are responsible for about half of these emissions. “The move to electric cars is an important part of the climate action puzzle for Australian households, but until now it has been too expensive for most.”
Mr. Van Groenou says that the bulk buy campaign is very different from ordinary car sales. “Goodcar partners with local community groups and donates a portion of their profits to support community action on climate and sustainability.
Extend their zero-emission journey
“We are excited to offer Enova’s community of customers, shareholders and supporters the opportunity to extend their zero-emission journey through this bulk purchase that makes EVs more affordable.”
NSW has a range of policies that make electric car ownership increasingly attractive. Electric cars are exempt from stamp duty and a $3,000 subsidy will be applied to all new EV sales, further increasing the affordability of EV.
“The NSW government has pledged $171 million over the next four years to help build a world-class electric vehicle charging infrastructure that will make it super easy to drive an electric car across the state,” the statement said. Mr Van Groenou.
Felicity Stening says rooftop solar is spreading across Australian rooftops and it’s a great time for solar-powered households to maximize the value of their solar energy. “Charging an EV during the day instead of going to the gas station to fill up on fossil fuels is a really great way to do that.”
The Enova The EV bulk buying campaign is about unraveling electric vehicles. One EV Show & Shine event is scheduled for the from 9 a.m. to noon this Saturday, April 30 at the Stone and Wood Brewery, 100 Centennial Cct, Byron Bay†
