The Joule is the reporting arm of 8th Sister LLC. We provide both serious and satire articles about the energy industry. Our goal is to give people a reason to read about energy by combining comedy, history, and education into an eclectic mix of all three. We also generate videos both satirical and educational on many topics including energy, the environment, and sustainability. We have a team of writers and engineers working together to provide you with a deeper level of understanding and professionally written prose.
The Joule Store offers special items designed to help home owners reduce their energy foot print economically. Our goal is to offer items that help pay for themselves by reducing energy usage. Our relationship with Amazon allows current Amazon users to take advantage of the wealth of great buyer protect services they provide. The buyer can even use their Amazon account directly!
