We’re Expanding: Just Energy Solutions Opens Office in South West

Second branch of Just Energy Solutions has now opened in Truro, Cornwall Currently servicing the South East including London, the Home Counties and East Anglia from our St Albans Office, the Truro Office will expand the Team’s area of operation to cover the South West including Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. The new Office will meet the renewable energy, efficient heating and smart home technology installation, service and maintenance needs of both domestic and commercial customers in the area, as well as creating local opportunities for employment. Plans to develop operations in the South West were initiated by a growing demand for the services we provide in the region. After starting work in the area in April 2014 with a small team of surveyors and engineers, we’ve grown to expand our team of operations managers, surveyors, engineers and apprentices – as well as currently having vacancies for two additional engineers (interested engineers should contact us for details or visit our website’s Careers section). The new office is operated out of Penstraze Business Centre, a stone’s throw from bustling Truro – Cornwall’s centre for administration, leisure and retail. “Our whole ethos is built around the service we deliver to our customers and the fact that we can make a difference to those living in the region, which makes me proud to be at the forefront of the South West development. “By having such a diverse product range, from biomass and solar PV through to conventional gas, oil and electric heating we, as our name suggests, have a solution to suit every customer’s needs. Cost-effective servicing ensures we’re not just interested in new jobs,...

The Many Uses of Solar Power

At the start of 2013, more than 500,000 Solar PV installations had been fitted on rooftops throughout the UK and the British Solar Industry were working towards fitting one million by 2015. With energy costs on the rise, installing a Solar PV system and generating free electricity is fast becoming an attractive investment for UK homeowners. The number of PV installations on residential buildings has grown in recent years and is set to continue to grow as ten million homes in the UK should have their homes fitted with solar panels by 2020 if the UK is to fill its renewable energy potential. However it is not just residential properties that can benefit from generating free electricity via Solar Power. UK businesses spend £2.4 billion on energy annually and could cut their overhead costs significantly if they chose to invest in a Solar PV System. Commercial buildings are perfect for installing Solar PV systems, the vertical walls of office buildings provide several opportunities for PV incorporation and glass PV modules can easily be fitted to office roof spaces. Large commercial buildings such as factories or warehouses have a vast amount of roof space that can be used to install a Solar PV System, even if the roof area is flat the panels can be mounted using techniques that do not breach the weatherproofed roof membrane. Even skylights can be partially covered by Solar Panels, the PV installation can be tailored to each building so commercial properties do not need to miss out on the savings that can be generated by producing their own electricity. For many years, solar energy...
