Why Intelligent Generation
How subscribing to IG's Virtual Power Plant benefits you
Your distributed energy resources can be added as a bloc into IG’ s virtual power plant. IG bids your bloc into the wholesale power markets and you generate monthly cash revenue for helping stabilize the grid.
Solar power only partially offsets your energy bill. IG augments your savings by using your battery to manage demand reduction and to reduce peak load capacity charges.
When an outage hits, your most sensitive equipment will seamlessly transition to backup and not even notice an outage took place. IG can use static switches to configure your storage into “make-before-break” backup.
Your EV fleet can benefit from IG adding your charging infrastructure to its “virtual power plant.” IG modulates your charging in a grid friendly manner. You generate extra revenue and stay in control.

How we started
Intelligent Generation™ is a visionary software platform that democratizes the energy sector, empowers the individual, and accelerates the growth of renewable energy. IG founder and inventor, Jay Marhoefer, coined the phrase “Intelligent Generation” in his 2007 book, Re-Energizing America. Jay envisioned that the Internet would be the catalyst to democratize energy in the same way it had transformed information and commerce. Through virtual networks, energy consumers could now participate in power markets as producers and bankers of electricity. After receiving patents on algorithms that optimize a “virtual power plant,” Intelligent Generation LLC was founded, and a talented team developed first generation software for residential solar. Our focus has shifted to commercial and industrial markets that need renewable energy systems to pay off in green dollars. We are now expanding our breadth of software applications beyond solar in order to truly establish Intelligent Generation as The Power in Energy Storage.
Patent protected methods of value based hierarchy to optimize the virtual power plant
Good understanding of the fast moving policy landscape affecting distributed energy resources
Unique data center based software that links your asset dispatch, wholesale markets and our decision engine in real-time
A GREAT TEAM
An attorney, an IT network expert and an electrical engineer came together to develop IG at the intersection of these three disciplines
