Our Mission The electrical grid was built to carry electricity unidirectionally from central fossil fuel plants to end consumers. As we transition to a renewable future built from rooftop solar and community storage, the grid itself needs assistance. Span’s goal is to enable that transition, one home at a time, envisioning a grid made of distributed control systems and software as much as copper wires. To accomplish this, we are upgrading the breaker panel — the humble box sitting at the center of every building’s electrical wiring — to monitor, control, and make decisions about energy. This helps convert buildings from passive consumers in a centralized fossil fuel grid to active participants in the emerging distributed energy market, while also simplifying home electrical wiring. Span’s unique commitment to clean-slate “right architecture” and our passion for top-caliber customer experience has position us leaders in distributed grid efforts and have allowed us to achieve...
