Station A, a software platform that provides insights to make any building carbon-free, just closed their $3M Seed round investment. Investors included Powerhouse Ventures, SE Ventures, Renewal Funds, Southern Company, and Howard Wenger, the former President and CEO of SunPower Systems. Station A’s software estimates the potential amount of solar and energy storage that could be installed on-site at California’s commercial and industrial buildings.

Why does this matter?

  • In 2018, California passed SB-100 California Renewables Portfolio Standard Program: Emissions of Greenhouse Gases to achieve 100% clean energy by 2045. Station A’s software will accelerate California’s goal for clean energy.

What’s next?

  • The purpose of Self-Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) is to reduce emissions, reduce electricity demand, and reduce customer electricity purchases. Station A developed an application that helps customers determine what SGIP covers for a property. Properties in California will likely opt in to install solar and storage solutions.
