We install the Generac Powercell, with all of Generac’s state of the art solar components, in our customer’s homes.
These batteries maximize the return on investment for homeowners with utility companies that do not offer net metering.
The Powercell battery will provide backup power in the event of an outage, which is a tremendous advantage to most homeowners. If you live in an area with frequent power outages, you are most likely accustomed to using propane or gas generators. Well battery backup power offers many of the same backup power functions but without the need for refueling.
The battery’s capacity is something that can be expanded over time. We start most customers out with an 9 kWh battery, based on usage of each home. The battery storage can be expanded to a maximum of 34 kWh.
The system has an auto-transfer switch built-in, which allows the customer to easily switch from the utility grid to the battery in the event of an outage.
The Powercell also comes with a 24-hour monitoring system that specifies the customer’s consumption and remaining battery life. The unit, along with all of its components, is American made and backed by Generac’s 10-year warranty.
While a battery is not imperative for a solar array, most homeowners find satisfaction in knowing that they will not have to stress about the power to the essentials in the event of an outage. The battery is great for essential things such as a well pump, sump pump, refrigerator/freezer, microwave and general lighting receptacles.
