Clean, Abundant Energy for Everyone

We Scale New Energy

A personal, distributed energy revolution has begun. It promises to provide clean, abundant and affordable power to all. Our goal at Genability is to make this promise a reality. Every day we look to systematically remove each and every barrier on the way to mass adoption of renewable, smart energy.

New Energy. New Choices.

Make It - We identify when rooftop and community solar is right for homes and businesses by providing accurate savings forecasts. Installers are sizing and pricing their offerings to win; growing a new industry.

Use It - Transportation is becoming electric. This will significantly lower the planet's carbon footprint and save individuals significant money. Genability speeds adoption with software that smartly schedules charging, and designs grid-friendly rate plans.

Move It - The more intermittent renewable power we make and use, the more flexibility the grid needs. Genability signals smart batteries and connected appliances, moving load, balancing supply and demand, and ultimately preventing grid defection at a cost we can all afford.

Our Customers are the New Energy Companies

We work with companies making New Energy a reality. They are the biggest names in solar, storage, electric transportation, connected home and connected business. They are Smart Utilities and Retail Electric Providers (REPs) who are embracing and enabling our new energy future. We help them identify opportunities, present savings beautifully, and keep new energy customers happy.

We are a group of technology, data, and energy experts who are passionate about building a more sustainable future.
