The grid of the future will require secure, reliable and standardized communications on 100 million+ bi-directional power sources including solar, storage, EV's and more.

Without a scalable and universal networking infrastructure, the grid will crumble under the chaos of millions of energy devices turning on and off every second of the day. PowerFly provides the multi-vendor, plug-and-play networking backbone needed to help coordinate the distributed grid of the future.

About us

We are a team of solar and embedded controls experts bringing the latest in IoT technologies to solve some of the biggest communications challenges facing the grid of the future.

We are incredibly proud to have won two consecutive grant competitions with the American Made Solar Prize! As part of our grant, we were able to install PowerFly at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's FLEX Lab for rigorous testing; and all systems are go!  More about the American Made Solar Prize and the Powerfly team below.
