A PWRcell Solar + Battery Storage system has all the power and capacity you need, enough to save money on energy bills and keep the whole home powered when the grid goes down. PWRcell goes above and beyond the competition with up to 9kW of continuous backup power and cohesive load management for further protection. PWRcell represents the next step in Generac’s 60-year history of backup power technology leadership.
 
The PWRcell system is not just a powerful battery, but is also the most flexible and scalable home energy system on the market. With a standard Outdoor Rated (OR) battery cabinet, the PWRcell is compatible with most installs in nearly any climate. The PWRcell can also be configured to meet any budget or lifestyle so you don’t pay for more than you need: with as few as 3 battery modules for up to 9kWh of capacity and 4.5kW output, all the way up to our 6-module configuration providing up to 18kWh of capacity and 9kW output. If more power is needed, we’ve got you covered; multiple PWRcell battery cabinets can be connected to a single PWRcell inverter for up to 36kWh of storage capacity and 11kW continuous backup power.
 

True Energy Independence

The PWRgenerator is a revolution in home energy security, exclusively from Generac. When solar power is unavailable or insufficient, this DC-coupled generator rapidly recharges the PWRcell Battery to keep your home powered long-term during outages. Because PWRgenerators are designed to run more frequently and for longer periods, they are quieter, more fuel efficient, and have extraordinarily long service cycles.


How does it work?

Day: Home runs on solar, charges the battery, and sells extra power to the grid
Night: Home runs on battery power, energy use is optimized
During a Power Outage: Run your home on battery, recharge daily with solar, top-off the battery with PWRgenerator when needed

The PWRmanager advanced load management device adds unbeatable flexibility and value to the PWRcell System by enabling whole home backup, controlled via the user-friendly PWRview app. The PWRmanager enables batteries to work smarter, so fewer batteries can power the home for longer. PWRmanager gives the homeowner flexible access to all loads during an outage while automatically managing loads to extend backup times and prevent inverter overload. This easy-to-install load management device integrates seamlessly with PWRcell, providing reliable power when it’s needed most.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nature does provide issues Overall we are happy with our PWRcell Solar + Battery Storage system. In my review I'm truthful. Why have it installed? To help the environment and cut the electrical bill some. I'm not a global warming fanatic. I was raised close to nature. Raised very old fashion. Mom cooked on a wood cook stove. My thought, one does not have a whole home solar system with back up batteries installed to offset the cost of electricity. Solar is costly. You must care for the environment enough to make the leap. Yes there are months we come out ahead a little. They are generally during long daylight hours of summer. Having backup up power provided by the sun during a power outage is awesome. I'm providing this feedback after having the system for over two years. We do experience issues that reduce power generation. Because I'm a worn out disable journeyman carpenter, I'm not able to clean our many panels located three stories up. To pay someone to clean the solar panels would be cost prohibitive. Living in and surrounded by Termperate Rainforest in the Pacific Northwest nature is beautiful yet proven to cause me to worry about dirty solar panels. Pollin, needles, leaves, bird dropping, environmental dirt and dust all adhere to the solar panels. Snow has covered the panels for several weeks at a time. I would like to add to and can add panels and batteries to our system. First I have to remove several skylights. Hate the things. Another expense. As I write this; Oct 1st 2022 the cost of living has crushed us and many others. If only politicians who want to help the environment understood they are causing more harm than good. Tax brakes and net-mettering are great. BUT, politicians have stripped money from people making it impossible for them purchase or finance solar systems. Same goes for electric vehicles. The average middle income family cannot afford to purchase "green energy" because politicians are out of touch with main street America. Bottom line. Generac produces and sells an awesome solar system. Our installer is the best. First Choice Electrical and Solar. Kind, professional and above all honest.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Information I've gone solar and think it's a great investment. However, I just saw a very misleading commercial about Generac Power Cells. A power cell doesn't SAVE you money. It only comes into play when/if you lose power. The cell stores power and can be utilized if needed. The commercial alleging a power cell saved people money is simply not true. The misconception about solar is you are using the solar power. You aren't. You are not "off the grid" the power generated from your system goes into the grid. The power you provide is then credited to your account by the power company against the power you utilize.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Former PinkEnergy customer,Generac is a much better company! We purchased our entire system from PinkEnergy.Generac has assured me that they are working on a transition to full service and it will happen and to be patient and we are. I trust them from years of our families farming operation in South Dakota.,It is a large operation and we are very happy with their service. I am really sure that it will . Our issue at the moment is that our solar power is not reaching our battery cabinet with an Error 7000 on our inverter, I asked my wife’s uncle who runs the farm and he has never seen it or had the issue. He still uses generators and is new to solar but with as big as the farm he has high hopes as we do! We are excited about when the teething issues are solved., And we are looking forward to the great service that we have received on the farm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Running well. We are a new customer this June. So far very impressed with the system. Nice to see our usage via app, or via web. It would be great as other users have stated. to be able to change modes remotely, I would love to see some sort of api or reporting tool, other than graphics to export usage and system data to something like Grafana for long term reporting. one note though. when the batteries are being charged at a fast rate, ( electric drier) or pushing current to the utility, the fans can be quite loud. Over all great so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product has great fetures , the app needs updating Great product.,. currently have one inverter and two battery cabinets. Would like to see a software update that would allow the App to allow the user to switch operating modes. This would be great especially if your away from the house and need to make changes throuh out the day and evening due to events that may arise. Otherwise its a great system and its saving me boatloads of money on my electric bill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need the tweeks the other customers are talking about. Common sense that the generator should be able to charge the batteries Like the people said in the other reviews, the generator should be able to charge the batteries. And maybe the cover could have some recessed handles , double as vents.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Low Reliability I own the PowerCell system with 2 Inverters and 18Kwh since Novrmber 2021. Every single month is an issue with one of the inverters, phone customer service take 25+ min to pickup the phone. Once they pickup the phone, be ready to waste 1hr+ of you time. They have "tried" to help with the same exact result everytime, please call the installer. This is a very expensive system so I expect to work flawlessly but it is not. I am regretting to spend so much money in this system. I am selling my excess of power so I am losing money everytime this does not work. So do the math on equipment cost and money loss. I hope Generac fix the issues as I though this was the best system in thr market, at least on paper.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My system was installed 1st weel of December Our system with battery backup, was installed through Sanctity Solar the first week of December. (Contract was signed June 2021.) However, it has never produced electricity. It appears that there is a problem with the Snaps. But no one really knows as no one from Generic nor Sanctity Solar LLC has cared enough to check out system to ensure that is the problem. I asked about when warranty starts. Generic said for ME to determine if there is a part under warranty that has malfunctioned. I do have 2 Generac portable generators that I have had for years that always start when I needed them. Only had to replace a battery on the one with electric start. Thus, I know that it makes great products. I just need my solar to start working.
