Job description

Company description

In 1979, when our story started, renewable and off-grid energy weren’t about reducing carbon. They were about getting power to remote locations. Four decades on and we’re still solving problems for customers who need electricity in far-flung places, but now we’re helping businesses meet the biggest challenge of our times: the need to eliminate carbon emissions.

Everything we do is driven by reducing carbon. It’s why we exist and why we’re on a mission to save 1 million tonnes of CO2 by 2025.

It’s how we combat climate change. But we can’t do it alone.

We need your help to reach our goal. We need to install more solar panels, get more businesses onto 100% renewable power and help everybody use energy more efficiently.

That way we can keep the UK’s businesses running and keep on reducing CO2.

Join us on our mission and let’s get to zero carbon together.
