About Us

Nanogrid Technologies, PBC logo
Swing Electric℠ is a service of Nanogrid Technologies, PBC.

At Nanogrid, we believe the future of transportation is electric – that's why we created Swing Electric. It is better for the air we breathe and gets you 3x as many miles per dollar as traditional internal combustion engines. But going electric requires a new rhythm to your life, and your local car dealer might not be equipped to help you find it.

Our mission is to give you the simplest experience making the switch to driving electric. We want to realize the full potential of a transportation system powered by clean electricity, and we've embedded that into our DNA by incorporating as a Public Benefit Corporation. That "PBC" next to our formal name, "Nanogrid Technologies, PBC" means that unlike most companies, our shareholders measure their legacy and return on investment with the environmental impact we create getting you off fossil fuels, not just profits. Many companies talk about their impact, but few put it into their legal corporate charter.

Learn more about how we got started on our blog.

Making the switch to electric shouldn't require a Ph.D. Let us help you save time and make the switch.
