Otta's take

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Sunsave, founded in 2022, is on a mission to make solar energy and battery storage accessible to the mass market by removing the upfront costs and providing a subscription service that takes care of everything - from installation to maintenance - so that more UK households can save on their energy bills.

The model is designed to remove the biggest barrier to installing rooftop solar and storage - the ~£10k typical upfront cost and long payback period - allowing customers to save on their energy bills from day one. This is wrapped into a hassle-free service, with installation, monitoring, and maintenance included, which also enables households to sell excess electricity and participate in the smart grid.

The green company has already attracted the attention of blue-chip VC funds such as Norrsken, the UK Department of Energy, and household name entrepreneurs including Michael Spencer and Stuart Rose, raising ~£11M in funding and growing to ~30 FTEs. Sunsave is the first company to bring the tied and tested solar subscription business model to the UK and in doing so, will build the next green unicorn.

Diversity & Inclusion at Sunsave

Juliet Mance headshot

Juliet Mance (Head of Sales)

  • One of our core values as a young start up is that there's strength in diversity.
  • We believe that a team with different perspectives, backgrounds and life- experiences will always outperform a homogenous one.
  • We believe in creating a team that actively celebrates and benefits from all types difference - including, race, gender, sexuality & neurodiversity.
  • We're committed to recruiting a team that doesn't look, feel and think the same way we do. And we have formal processes and measures in place to hold ourselves to account (at every level). This is to try and ensure that our values aren't just things written down on a Notion page somewhere (sadly many of us have experienced workplaces like that!), but are actually values that we live and strive to demonstrate daily.
  • Practical ways we show our commitment to building a diverse and inclusive team are:
  • Flexibility of working hours, location and benefits to ensure employment suits different circumstances
  • Enhanced parental leave
  • Utilising software to test all job descriptions for unconscious bias
  • Recruitment processes that are inclusive of our wider team and include an objectively measured skills based assessment wherever appropriate
