• June 2019 Pure Planet Community highlights and points leaderboard

    Hi everyone

    Welcome to the monthly highlights and rewards update for the Pure Planet Community! Today we’re looking at June 2019.

    Someone in the PP office mentioned the other day that we had just passed the halfway stage to Christmas…..

    So with that in mind we came over all sunny and summery here in the community.

    Member @Strutt G shared his favourite summer songs (do you agree with his choice?), @Oakbank has got some exciting plans for his new caravan, @Nataly wants to know where are the best British summer hotspots, and in hot weather related news, @Bev has started a poll on how many of us wash our legs when taking a shower.

    If that hasn’t got you got under the collar, then how about taking part in this community Q&A about how we buy solar power?

    June was, of course, the month we celebrated the summer solstice. Just like last year, we at Pure Planet HQ marked the day by seeing how much carbon we could save by taking alternative commutes to and from work. Between us we commuted more than 300 miles carbon-free, including three of the team who travelled by canoe.

    The big Pure Planet news from June was a major update to our website which now means you can join and manage your account in a web browser, as well as your app.

    Our tech and product guys also took part in a community Q&A and got some fantastic questions and feedback from Members. Thanks for taking part!

    And the other news is that @Angelabikerbabe won the June photo challenge - Something Old, Something New with this very touching picture of her elderly (ish!) parents enjoying a new experience of feeding meerkats.

    In a double whammy @Angelabikerbabe was the community member in the spotlight for June - fame at last!

    June was also when @Kniterella celebrated a birthday - do read her heart-warming report of the celebrations which really made us smile, and completely coincidentally @Bev started a great thread called You Know You’re Getting Old When…..

    Meanwhile, @schase is looking for advice on installing LED lightbulbs, @Suz revealed why she’s obsessed with her smart meter, and @tonyp had a top recycling tip involving coffee jar lids.

    Finally, we think we’ve spotted a photo of the most mouth-watering pizza ever, posted by @DutchCaerleon.

    Looking ahead to July 2019

    This month is mostly going to be about tidying up after such a busy June. We know there are a few glitches following the big app and web release.

    We’ll also see some more improvements to WattBot following his minor surgery the other day.
    Over the coming weeks and months Watt will be much better at taking info from Members who have specific questions.

    And we’re looking into the issue affecting some members getting Smart meters installed which is delaying info being displayed in their In-home display.

    Pure Planet Community Rewards for June 2019

    As you know, each month we say thanks to those who contribute to our community by asking and answering questions and participating in discussions on all things related to Pure Planet and renewable energy, and just generally keeping the community safe and fun.

    Here's a link to how the Pure Planet community points work which includes how much points are worth, guidance on how to earn points (without giving away our top secret formula!) and when you’ll be able to redeem your points.

    So a big thank you to all of you wonderful members who have contributed.
