About Green Nation
Green Nation has been in business for almost a decade. During that time, we’ve developed several solar farms and worked with hundreds of owners to put solar on houses, schools and commercial buildings.
We now manage solar farms and rooftop systems developed by us and by others generating millions of kilowatt hours of electricity annually. If we were feeling grandiose, we could rephrase that as we generate gigawatt hours of electricity for businesses, communities and neighbourhoods.
We continue to grow and expand our base in the UK, and are constantly looking out for new sites to develop and existing sites to acquire. Meanwhile, developing other energy technologies, and looking at projects outside the UK is a key priority in our mission to provide affordable and sustainable energy for all.
Why People Do Business With Us
Some people do business with us to maximise their land and property income. Some work with us to save money. Communities may wish to take control of their energy needs and sustainability. Others want to invest in our projects for a return.
Either way, we seek to build long-term relationships with all parties. That’s because we recognise that our investors, land and building owners, suppliers, communities and home owners rely on the schemes we create, and they need to be expertly planned, quality-driven and reliably maintained – built for the long run.
That means we take time to listen to each other’s point of view and needs, making sure every deal is fair value for all and respectfully letting each other know how, where and when we see something could be done better.
We simply believe it is possible to both do good business and be good for the planet.
Meet the Founder
Jonathan Thompson, Founder and CEO, Green Nation
“When I started the business in 2011, I had a hunch that solar was about to go mainstream.
What has happened since then has exceeded my expectations, both in terms of the public uptake of solar and the reduction in the cost of deploying it.
I’m now convinced that in 30 years from now, or even less, solar will become the single largest source of power globally. And in the process, I believe it will change how the world works.
We aim to be one of the drivers of that change, by constantly learning, adapting and improving what we do, and by sticking to our core value of dealing with people honestly and fairly.”
Jonathan’s business experience spans 30 years. Past roles include Director of Products and Services at 3 Mobile, directing the development and launch of one of the world’s first commercial interactive TV services at NTL (now Virgin Media), and Managing Director of a manufacturing business.
Jonathan has also carried out strategy consulting projects in the UK and overseas for Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 companies as well as for private equity firms. Jonathan has a degree and PhD from Cambridge University.
