It’s not often solar power makes front-page headlines, let alone in the middle of a political crisis. Our Technical Director, Dr Chris Jardine, reviews the latest machinations in Whitehall.
You might remember that our Head of Delivery (EV Charging), Graeme Patton, recently got his first electric car. Well, we’ve been catching up with Graeme to find out about his experiences so far… from collecting the car from the dealership, to how he’s been finding the range. Plot spoiler: the word ‘planning’ comes up a lot!
This week, the EV Summit is celebrating Top Women in EV, with their event recognising the achievements of women in campaigns and policy, business, communications, marketing, engineering and technology, HR and business development.
We’ve got the lyrics from that particular Pulp song on a loop in our heads, because our Head of Delivery (EV Charging), Graeme Patton, has recently got his first EV. Over the next couple of months, we’re going to be finding out all about that experience and asking you to share your first EV experiences with us too – on our social channels, using the hashtag #firstEV.READ MORE
Here at Joju Solar, one of the things we believe in is the power of community energy, and we’ve worked closely with Mike Smyth for many years to install some pioneering community energy projects for schools (and other similar buildings) across the country.
Mike is the former Chair of Friends of the Earth Trust and the current Chair at Energy 4 All, The Schools Energy Co-operative and Wey Valley Solar Schools Energy Co-operative, and he’s always been passionate about environmental matters.
Last year, we completed our 100th project with Mike, and it was a special one… installing solar panels on the cloisters of Salisbury Cathedral. We couldn’t let this pass without catching up with him to talk about the landmark, Mike’s background and his hopes for community energy in the future.
So, grab yourself a cuppa, take ten minutes and listen to Mike’s story and his feelings about reaching 100… installs, of course!
One of our highlights of 2020 on social media was the Twitter hashtag #badstockimagesofmyjob. In it, people shared the bad, the awful and the frankly hilarious images available on commercial stock image sites that don’t quite capture the nuances of their profession.READ MORE
Joju Charging has won the contract under the TfL GULCS framework (Go Ultra Low City Scheme) with the Royal Borough of Kingston, to provide 100 street light charge points for local Kingston residents. The charge points will be installed on existing lamp posts during February and March and will help people make the switch to EV, as residents without access to off street parking will soon be able to park on the street near their homes, plug their electric vehicle into a charge point on a street light and charge away!
