Unbelievably, it’s March already! 2019 seems to be flying by and we’re on the cusp of Spring.:D

February was a great month in the Pure Planet Community with loads going on.

It started in busy mode for us at PP as we moved into a new office, which turned into frantic mode a few days later when we announced a reduction in our Membership Fee.

We held a community Q&A with co-founder Chris Alliott who took questions from Members about how the wholesale energy industry works. Check out his answers here.

We’re all still feeling loved up from Valentine’s Day in February, and @Bev took the opportunity to ask fellow Members who was their childhood crush when growing up. :heart:

We had some decent weather last month, prompting @Richie to think how he might charge his phone using solar power, while @Oakbank was still feeling the cold as he wants to know if anyone uses heat pumps at home, and @G4RHL asked about heating automation systems.

In February we started a monthly photo competition - a great idea from @Bev and @Jon1 - and there was some truly stunning entries. But there can only be one winner, step forward @Oakbank for this gorgeous pic of his daughter and her Dalmatian at the top of a mountain!

Check out the March photo challenge, called ‘Spring & New Life', and there’s more great photos in this thread for Pure Planet pets.

Elsewhere, the Community spotted some nice The Times coverage of Pure Planet, and @NannyOgg has some ideas on alternatives to Amazon vouchers when referring friends and family.

As more of us are looking into getting an electric vehicle, last month we asked Pure Planet Members what can we do to encourage EV adoption and make charging your vehicle with us a great option. Thanks to everyone who’s taken part so far - some fantastic feedback.

If you’re thinking of getting your first EV, you might want to check out this post from @Lenny about what to expect.

Finally, in February we released version 7.14.4 of the app, and we installed our first smart meters!

There’ll be smart meter updates coming this week and if you’re keen to help out, register your interest here.

Looking ahead to March 2019

Following the success of the community Q&A with Chris Alliott in Feb, we’re planning another with our head of smart meters at Pure Planet. So if there’s anything you ever wanted to know about them, this’ll be your chance!

We’re also planning to give our FAQs section a small facelift in March. Nothing drastic, just so it’s in keeping with the homepage refresh which went live at the start of the year.

We’ll also be introducing a couple of new faces from Pure Planet to the Community! Exciting times as we see the Community and the number of PP Members grow.

Finally, we’re inviting Members of the community to come and visit us in our new office in a few weeks. If you’d like to come to Bath for the day on Wednesday 27 March send me a message!
