Energy consumption and generation is changing
Join Us …
At Joju we believe the future for energy in the UK lies in having a holistic view from conception to completion, creating homes and buildings that are better for both people and the planet.
A fairer energy future, which doesn’t rely on carbon intense fuels, is possible for all homes and buildings and at Joju we offer the products and services to make this a reality.
We want to work with individuals and organisations that share our desire to create a fairer energy future for all.
We’re approachable, we know our stuff and we’ve got a great track record.
And our hearts are in our work, 100%. Since our founding ten years ago by businessman Joe Michaels and Oxford University renewables lecturer Dr Chris Jardine, we’ve helped pioneer ‘democratic energy’, building some of the earliest and largest community-funded and social housing solar projects.
We have also expanded our services from just solar PV to include, home battery storage (including the Tesla Powerwall), LED energy-efficient lighting, electric vehicle charging and operations & maintenance of existing solar PV systems—including those we didn’t install.
Solar panels have changed the lives of thousands of families in the UK.
The excitement of generating your own power brings another dimension to day-to-day life—especially when panels are fitted along with a smart energy monitor. Homes become connected to the wider world, helping people to understand how much electricity they import and how much they’re generating.
Over the last ten years we’ve been trusted by councils, community groups, businesses and homeowners, to build thousands of PV systems—all shapes and sizes, on all types of roof.
We are one of the largest installers of PV on social housing in the country and we have worked with numerous councils and social housing providers, including Brighton & Hove City Council, Greenfields Community Housing, Guildford Borough Council, the London Borough of Hackney, Oxford City Council, Reading Borough Council and Lewes District Council.
We’re proud of…
- Our big picture thinking. We believe in a fairer energy future for all.
- Our expertise. After 10 years there’s not much we don’t know about photovoltaics.
- Our success. Surviving and thriving in a notoriously rocky sector, we are still going strong.
- Our satisfied clients/partners. “Friendly”, “expert”, “great service”, we get brilliant compliments all the time, and we work hard for them.
Batteries & storage
We believe that in the future energy systems will be decentralised, making them much more democratic.
We’ve been installing battery systems since 2013 and have been involved in some of the earliest trials of this technology. In 2015, we were the installers for Project ERIC which incorporated batteries into 50 social housing units in Oxford. As such we are one of, if not the most, experienced installers in the country.
We provide domestic battery storage from a range of manufacturers including Tesla, Moixa, SMA, and Sonnen, as well as devices which capture excess electricity from solar systems that would otherwise be exported to provide heat.
We are certified installers of the Tesla Powerwall. We installed our first complete solar PV and Powerwall home system in May 2016. The installation and the impact it has had for Joju customer, Glen Tweedie, has already been featured on internet series Fully Charged hosted by Green technophile Robert Llewellyn.
