We're on a mission.

WILDGRID is a  research project aimed at democratizing the way people create and consume electricity through a family of energy harvesting devices.


We believe the power infrastructure was flawed from the beginning. In the 1880s, there was a very massive, and very public rumble between Tesla (who supported AC power)  and Edison (who supported DC power). What was at stake was the energy infrastructure of the United States. And the world.

Making the power generation on a smaller scale inherently makes power generation and consumption more flexible.

Think of it as "going local".
