Life at Midsummer
Join a company that's going places, in an industry that's doing good!
Midsummer began on a narrowboat in 2005. Our MD Andy lived off-grid and, as a former climate scientist, had experience with PV and battery systems in remote locations. The company has grown steadily from these modest beginnings, seizing the opportunity the feed-in tariff brought for the UK solar industry in 2010.
Now in its 15th year, we’ve moved into our 6th warehouse; opened an office in Dublin, Ireland; have gone international with our solar design software; and have added 16 brilliant minds to the business during the course of 2020.

Why the renewable energy industry?
The transition to clean energy will touch on all aspects of modern life. Generating and storing clean energy at source makes ever more sense as we wean ourselves off fossil fuels throughout society. Electrification of transport is happening now, for heating it's coming soon, and intelligent home energy systems are just on the edge of mainstream.
It has never been a more exciting time to be in the renewables industry as the pace of change and innovation is incredible. In distribution you're at the coal face on a daily basis. Working with leading suppliers, installers and end users means you’re able to see the effects of your work on a daily basis.

“Midsummer took me on as an intern on a two month contract and from day one I felt that something was a little different here! The people who work here and the management from the top make it a cracking place to be. The team ethos and camaraderie make getting through the tough times a walk in the park, and we believe in what we do. We're such an innovative company where everyone's input is valued and considered, and as a result, are ever-evolving and forward thinking.
