The story behind Jonstar

Jonstar Energy Brokers Ltd was founded by Jonathan Harris in 2013.

This experience was an eye opener in terms of the opportunities in the business energy market. Jonathan could see that UK businesses were often facing misleading sales practices and shocking customer service. Jonathan was convinced he could forge his own business in this market and with the help of a small loan from his parents Jonstar Energy Brokers was born.

Building trusted relationships with his clients and supporting them with their energy suppliers billing and services issues that were common place, customers started recommending him to other businesses and Jonstar continued to grow and expand.

Three office moves later we are proud to retain the vast majority of clients and even more through recommendations from existing clients.

We now possess a strong dynamic team which is bigger and possess a wealth of experience to serve even larger corporate entities. Yet, also small enough to care and provide a personal service with a powerful and diverse network of suppliers partners and technicians nationwide.

Phil Harding
Director of Jonstar Sustainable Technologies

Phil has worked in the energy efficiency arena since 2013 when he made a move to a domestic Solar PV installer looking to expand their business.  This was during the time of relatively good feed in tariffs and tumbling solar panel prices.  Although spending a relatively short time, two years, working in the domestic market while Phil was running the operations they were installing around 100 solar pv systems a month, as well as other measures like LED lighting, heating controls and biomass boilers.

The following five years was spent setting up and running a commercial solar installation company.  Over the 5 years Phil ran many solar pv projects of which 4 won awards in the Energy Efficiency Awards, including over 200kW installed in 2019 on Airfield Business Park in Market Harborough.

At Jonstar Phil has brought a wealth of experience to enable us from the start to run the company under three ISO standards, 9001, 14001 and 45001, become a CHAS Premium Plus company and AVETTA accredited on the SSIP schemes, manage our MCS accreditation for installation of Solar PV and qualifying for manufacturer approval for the installation of SolarEdge Solar Systems and Herschel Far Infrared heating products.
