SPAN to rapidly expand smart panel production via Jabil


Demand for smart electric panels is going up and up. To keep pace, home energy management tech company SPAN is teaming up with Jabil, a global leader in engineering, manufacturing, and supply chain solutions, to support a rapid expansion of SPAN’s product portfolio.

SPAN designs its products to replace the traditional electrical panel with technology better fit for the solar + storage + EV all-electric home. SPAN’s electrical panels give users real-time control over every circuit in their home and provide valuable energy usage analytics, all from one app.

Scaling that product is now the current challenge — a challenge addressed by this partnership with Jabil. With over 100 manufacturing sites located in more than 25 countries around the world, Jabil specializes in efficient global supply chains that help bring technologically advanced solutions to market.

“Jabil applauds SPAN’s goal to re-invent the electrical panel while empowering the development and delivery of innovative smart-home technology,” said Hunter Lankford, Sr. Director of Business Development, Jabil. “Our yearslong collaboration ensures SPAN can scale its business and meet its mission to electrify millions of American homes.”

In particular, Jabil’s vertical integration capabilities, expertise in automated manufacturing, as well as proven experience developing EV charging solutions and other power electronics provide SPAN with access to best-in-class manufacturing processes in the emerging electrification segment.

“As we continue to build the sustainable energy infrastructure required to support mass electrification there’s a highly competitive sea of emerging companies working to be the select few who will shape that future,” said SPAN CEO Arch Rao. “Those who successfully collaborate and leverage the power of the supply chain to rapidly scale will be the companies that spearhead this green energy movement. Our work with Jabil propels us forward to continue being a pioneer in this space.”

Already in 2024, SPAN has announced partnerships with leaders in the utility equipment and new home construction industries, in addition to a newly expanded product line. SPAN currently has connected panels deployed in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Over-the-air updates continue to expand the functionality of installed products.
