We believe customer-sited solutions maximize the value of distributed energy resources. This value can be shared, and harmonized, between energy consumers, providers, utilities, and society as a whole.
We want to strengthen both the grid and utilities’ relationships with customers. In the process, we help utilities provide better service to those customers.
Our belief is that the grid is a social good. It should be made stronger and more resilient for everyone’s benefit.
