It won't be politicians and large energy companies that will do the right thing and is not enough solve our climate change problems. We believe instead that the problems will be solved by green entrepreneurs and normal people that together want to be part of the solution. Join us and help us lead the development of the new green energy system, that will be powered by the people.
At Eljun, we see a decentralized energy system with producers, prosumers, and consumers directly sharing green energy and value within the community. To begin, we are creating the "Airbnb of charging stations" where people can open up their charging stations when not in use and earn passive income on an otherwise unused asset. Win for green entrepreneurs. Win for EV owners. Win for the environment.
Eljun is all about innovative communities. To a certain degree, it is the core of what we are trying to achieve. A community that shares and drives sustainable change. Being part of Eljun is not just being a customer or employee, it's about being a member.
