Meet the new SPAN smart home panel lineup

SPAN product lineup

Home energy management innovator SPAN is now offering a wider range of products at different price points and with more installation flexibility (and reduced installation costs).

In addition to expanding its product family, SPAN also recently announced two partnerships with Landis+Gyr and PulteGroup to advance electrification in the utility and new home construction spaces.

The demand for smart panels is growing, but these are not one-size-fits all solutions for all customers. Some are limited by price point, others are limited by older home infrastructure. With this expanded line of products, SPAN is hoping to widen its pool of potential customers—from homeowners, to homebuilders, to grid operators.

More customers will now have access to SPAN’s energy management tool, PowerUp, released in Q4 of 2023. With PowerUp, SPAN ensures that customers will not go above the utility service their homes are rated for, an important factor when considering the increased electric loads to adopt EVs and the transition away from gas appliances.

In addition to the expanded form factor, SPAN is expanding the Panel family to include 208v in addition to 240v versions, enabling electrification in multi-family and small commercial buildings. The SPAN Panel product line will now include:

SPAN Panel 48 – The largest addition to the SPAN Panel family, the SPAN Panel 48 is geared toward new home construction, enabling builders to avoid expensive infrastructure costs when building all-electric or future electric homes, with best-in-class energy management, storage and charging capabilities of SPAN Panel 32.

SPAN Panel 32 – Currently available and deployed across the U.S., SPAN Panel 32 serves both the retrofit and new home construction categories, providing software-defined, whole-home backup management when paired with one of several compatible energy storage systems, as well as reducing the costs of electrification.

SPAN Panel 16/24 – Focused on retrofit electrification, SPAN Panel 16/24 is a field-adaptable, smaller Panel form factor that enables SPAN PowerUp functionality for major electric load additions, reducing both hardware and labor costs compared to larger panel form factors.

SPAN Meter 8 – When paired with smart meters, SPAN Meter 8 offers utility/grid operators advanced metering, submetering, demand flexibility and better utilization of the distribution infrastructure.

SPAN currently has panels deployed in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. SPAN will continue to expand the functionality of its installed products via regular over-the-air updates. The expanded family will begin roll-out in Q4 of this year beginning with the SPAN Panel 48.
