What’s it all about?
Toddington’s story is one of the most interesting and uplifting I’ve come across. I knew of Toddington from before GRIDSERVE, whilst leading Belectric in the UK, and his passion for solar energy developments. We record this podcast just as news breaks of the first subsidy free large scale solar PV developments in the UK, which will also in time co-locate with battery energy storage, and most exciting of all, their Electric Forecourts plan for EV charging destinations. Sit back and enjoy.
