It’s Indigo Power by name

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - NEWS -

THE com­mu­nity en­ergy re­tailer has a name af­ter hun­dreds of peo­ple from across the re­gion voted to choose its name.

An over­whelm­ing ma­jor­ity of peo­ple chose Indigo Power as the name of the new re­tailer.

“We are thrilled to an­nounce that the com­mu­nity en­ergy re­tailer will be known as Indigo Power – named af­ter the beau­ti­ful na­tive flow­er­ing plant Indigofera aus­tralis that blooms in val­leys across North East Vic­to­ria,” Cam Klose Con­venor of the Com­mu­nity En­ergy Net­work said.

Hun­dreds of peo­ple across the re­gion voted on a short­list of five names cho­sen by the re­gional com­mu­nity en­ergy net­work.

“The re­tailer is go­ing to be owned by the lo­cal com­mu­nity so it makes sense they helped name the re­tailer,” Mr Klose said.

“We hop­ing to launch the re­tailer in early 2019 and will have some ex­cit­ing projects com­ing up over the rest of the year, part­ner­ing with lo­cal busi­nesses.

“Indigo Power will be guided by the com­mu­nity – par­tic­u­larly through the re­gional com­mu­nity en­ergy net­work – so if peo­ple are in­ter­ested, please join their lo­cal com­mu­nity en­ergy group or get in touch.”

Based in North East Vic­to­ria, Indigo Power will be a com­mu­nity owned and man­aged busi­ness, sell­ing elec­tric­ity to lo­cal cus­tomers. It will also al­low house­holds with so­lar (and a bat­tery sys­tem) to trade elec­tric­ity with one another.

It will: big power com­pa­nies - holds.
