SuperB has a programme of precision electroweak measurements made possible using data at the Y(4S) by virtue of beam polarisation. These measurements include sin^2 theta_W obtained via left-right asymmetry measurements of e+e- transitions to pairs of fermions. The precision obtainable at SuperB is expected to match that of the LEP/SLC world average at the center of mass energy of 10.58GeV. Once the Higgs mass is known the SuperB precision electroweak programme will become a search for physics BSM
