Span: Accelerating rapid adoption of renewable energy solutions through intuitive home integration and interface.

Span was created to bring the innovations of tomorrow into the homes of today. They rebooted and overhauled the 100-year-old electrical panel and have developed an easy-to-use interface system through which renewable energy sources can be readily interfaced and integrated into a home. Reduce cost, improve sustainability, and build a smart home – controlled at the touch of a button – all through Span.

"At Span we are re-architecting the home electrical panel to be the central hub for monitoring and managing all energy resources and loads in the home. The Span panel is engineered to give homeowners very high levels of insight and control into all aspects of their home energy usage. TDK is a key partner for us in delivering state-of-the-art products and groundbreaking services to customers. We are glad to have TDK Ventures onboard, journeying with us step-by-step and adding value along the way."
