Generac PWRcell is a revolutionary, environmentally friendly, battery storage system that helps you save money and prepares you for power outages. Our PWRcell battery storage technology captures and stores energy from solar panels or the electric grid then uses this energy when you need it most!
Save Money Every Day
Lower energy bills and avoid peak rates. Take advantage of our PWRview technology and optimize your power use during the day. Stop paying for peak hour prices when the cost of your utility power is at its highest rate, by utilizing the power stored in your PWRcell. Supplementing your current energy use, especially when grid power is expensive, will help you save thousands on your energy bill over the life of the product. Many people don’t even realize they are paying more during certain times of the day and you can program your PWRcell to use its stored energy and save you money during these times.
Prepare For Power Outages
Not only can the PWRcell save you money daily, but it also prepares you for any type of power outages. Stop spending your nights in the dark when the weather turns bad. Keep your most important appliances on, like a sump pump or well, while your power is out. Don’t let these critical items turn off for an extended period, thus costing you in the long run. And the best thing is, the PWRcell has the highest storage capacity available on the market today, thus powering your home for longer! Gain greater independence from the grid
Capture clean energy from our photovoltaic solar panels and store that energy in our expandable Li-ion PWRcell Battery™ cells. PWRcell provides homeowners with up to 50 amps and 12 kW of surge capacity, enough to start heavy loads such as air conditioners, refrigerators, wells, sump pumps, and much more. It also gives up to 8kW of continuous output, plenty to run most homes.
PWRcell is Scalable
Our PWRcell system is fully customizable and can scale as you need it. It features an innovative modular battery pack system, equipped with 8.6 kWh batteries, which can be expanded up to 34.2kWh. Since it is all made by Generac, each component is specifically engineered to seamlessly install and work together. This is unlike most solar storage products, which are assembled piecemeal from various manufacturers’ components. This makes the PWRcell one of the most scalable, robust energy storage systems available on the market today.

FAQs on the Generac PWRcell
What is the Generac PWRcell?
The PWRcell is an innovative battery storage product that gathers power from the sun to help you stay up and running during a power outage. It also works to reduce utility costs and decrease loads on the power grid. Each system features lithium-ion battery modules, a PWRcell inverter and a storage cabinet.
How do battery storage systems work?
Essentially, the PWRcell collects energy from solar panels or the electrical grid and stores it in lithium-ion battery modules. When your home experiences a power outage or the grid is being overloaded during peak times, the inverter will turn the stored energy into alternating current (AC), which can then power your home.
How does a battery storage system help with power outages?
When the power goes out, the stored energy will go to work providing reliable backup power until the utilities are back online. This means that you and your family won’t have to deal with the challenges and inconveniences that come with power outages.
How much power does the PWRcell produce?
A single PWRcell is made up of six battery modules that provide 17.1kWh of stored energy. You can combine up to two products for a total of 12 battery modules and 34.2kWh of energy.
How do I choose the right system for me?
Your best bet is to work with an authorized Generac technician who will be able to configure a customized system to meet your needs.
How long is the installation process?
Typically, the installation process is relatively easy and can be completed in just one day. To ensure local code compliance and enjoy maximum performance, be sure to work with an authorized installer.
Where is the PWRcell installed?
Typically, the battery storage cabinet is installed in a garage. However, if you don’t have a garage, your installer will work with you to find the best location in the home.
How much does the PWRcell cost?
For the inverter, battery storage and 3 battery modules, pricing starts at $9,999 MSRP+. Keep in mind that you may qualify for state and federal rebates, tax credits and other incentives that will help with the cost of the unit.
Does the PWRcell include solar panels?
No, Generac does not make or sell solar panels, but we can help you partner with one of our authorized solar panel manufacturers and installers for a turnkey solution.
