About Genability

Empowering New Energy Companies

Genability was founded with a simple goal, to enable New Energy Companies to include Smart Energy in their products and services. Our customers are some of the biggest names in solar, connected home and connected business. They use our tools to precisely find, maximize and communicate energy savings. In dollars, not kWh. We help you to collect energy data, benchmark your customer, identify opportunities and savings, present these beautifully, convert and then operate. Whether via API or App, our technology is backed by our industry best database of residential and commercial electricity tariffs, incentives and rebates coupled with the fastest, most accurate and scalable rate engine available.

The New Energy companies are not utilities. They are solar developers, EV manufacturers, and the makers of internet connected devices. And they are fundamentally changing the way consumers receive and interact with their power. Genability helps New Energy Companies build energy intelligence into how their products work and are sold. Selling more and saving their customers money.

The New Energy Companies

For the Solar Industry, we provide solutions to help you find prospects, convert to customers and keep them happy. We accurately calculate and present Solar Savings.

For companies selling Connected Appliances and Home Energy Management, we provide transparency into your customer's energy costs and usage. We know their utility, rate plan, available rebates and incentives. We can estimate their usage or connect to their meter data. More importantly we can identify options for saving money and sparing the grid. We embed real time smart energy into your products.

For automotive OEMs and EV service providers, we help you understand, quantify and present the cost savings and customer value of your Electric Vehicles. Our understanding of electricity tariff rates, usage and options is embedded in our web apps, dealership tools and smart charger scheduling.

Why We Do This

Every year the U.S. burns 1 billion tons of coal to produce electricity. 66% of that electricity is wasted. This translates to nearly 1.3 billion tons of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere (the equivalent of 227 million cars) to produce electricity we don’t use.

What we do: A lot of this energy is wasted because electricity consumers have no idea of when they are wasting electricity. We are building smart energy into products and services by providing the best electricity pricing and optimization information to the New Energy Companies via apps, web services and APIs.
