We believe that the electricity market needs pricing transparency. We have assembled a database of electricity pricing information from more than 3500 electricity providers throughout North America. We are putting the data in the hands of electricity consumers and companies that assist them, to help everyone make more informed choices about when to use, store, and sell electricity.

Genability is building an innovative suite of Web and mobile applications, as well as Web services and APIs so we and our partners can provide homeowners and businesses insight, control, and choices about the energy they use, produce, buy, and sell.
