Finding Home in Montana

Photographer, Alex Strohl, has adventure in his blood. His father, a Frenchman, was a forest engineer who worked throughout Southern Europe and North Africa. However, when Alex’s father decided to move somewhere more wild in the 1960’s he landed on Missoula, Montana.

So when Alex and his partner, Andrea Dabene, decided to make some roots and establish ‘home’, Montana was an easy decision. Alex loved its snow-capped peaks and untouched wilderness. Andrea loved Montana’s long, peaceful winters and beauty.

“Home is underrated,” Andrea said. “When you come back from your travels to reflect on where you’ve been, that’s when you really find yourself.”

“At home you’re lazy, then you’re hard on yourself,” Alex added. “You find a routine, and then you break it. It’s very revealing of who you are.”

Alex and Andrea are Land Rover enthusiasts and their Land Rover Discovery Sport is the perfect vehicle for their lifestyle and needs. At one point, they drove in a snowstorm 4 hours overnight to get to a backcountry ski resort. The Discovery Sport performed perfectly and they safely arrived at their destination, no worries.

The Montana nights are perfect for Alex. He enjoys using the night sky in his photography. “I feel very vulnerable, like a real outsider when I’m alone at night,” Alex said. “I look for clear moonless nights so we can photograph the Milky Way, or I like to find a body of water in the foreground so the stars reflect on the surface.”

Once the winter is over, Alex and Andrea will be heading to France to climb the Pyrenees, bike the Alps, and surf in the Basque Country. In Europe, they have a Land Rover Defender 110 to get around. Their Discovery Sport will wait for them until summer when they return home to Montana, ready to explore their ‘home’ once again.

Land Rover Commits to Renewable Energy

Jaguar Land Rover has been and remains committed to a cleaner future by focusing on renewable energy.

Recently, Jaguar Land Rover has come into an agreement with EDF Energy to only purchase electricity from renewable sources. This agreement goes until 2020.

The electricity supply is backed by Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin, which means a portion of EDF Energy’s renewable energy is ear-marked specifically for Jaguar Land Rover. Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin certifies that the portion of the electricity supply comes from renewable generation. 100% for Jaguar Land Rover.

“Our future is low-carbon, clean, and efficient,” Ian Harnett, Executive Director of Human Resources and Global Purchasing, Jaguar Land Rover, said. “Our program to recuse our burden on the National Grid doesn’t end here: we seek continual improvements, both in how we can reduce energy consumption further and how to minis our carbon emissions. Our aim is to give our customers as assurance that the company’s electricity will come from renewable sources: those being in addition to the solar array at our Engine Manufacturing Center in Wolverhampton, one of the largest rooftop installations in Europe.”

Jaguar Land Rover continues to research and develop more sustainable powertrains by investing more than $3 billon. They are working to develop electric, hybrid, and conventional powertrains that will leave less of a carbon footprint.

“EDF Energy is pleased to announce that we will continue to supply Jaguar Land Rover with 100% renewable electricity for the next three years,” Beatrice Bigois, Managing Director of Customers, EDF Energy. “Jaguar Land Rover is a valued partner of EDF Energy – we share a strong focus on sustainability and are very proud to support Britain’s biggest car maker in achieving their low-carbon ambitions.”

Jaguar Land Rover continues to lead the way to a cleaner future by committed to cleaner electricity, more full efficient vehicles, and fully electric vehicles.
