True backup with Generac PWRcell™ Solar + Battery Storage

Rooftop solar is undeniably appealing. It is a technology that promises to power homes with clean, renewable sunshine AND save money. Homeowners can save thousands of dollars while doing their part to help reduce greenhouse gases. However, the limitations of traditional solar and solar + storage have left some homeowners in the dark and paying more out of pocket.

Standard solar only works when the grid works. With power outages rising nationwide, people see backup power as essential. Solar owners often assume their solar system will provide that protection and power their home if there is a utility power outage. Unfortunately, they would be wrong. By code, solar systems must disconnect from the grid during an outage, meaning customers who had chosen to invest in an alternative energy solution are left without power like everyone else.

Generac dove into the solar industry to solve these problems. We have been making whole house generators for over 30 years, so it is only natural that we would put the same power and innovation into our solar + storage system. The result is the PWRcell Solar + Battery Storage system. PWRcell combines massive power and capacity with automatic load management, providing the industry’s first true whole-home backup and savings solution.

PWRcell boasts big power and capacity, so you can maintain your lifestyle without disruption when the grid goes down. Power-hungry essential appliances like air conditioners, well pumps and refrigerators would overwhelm a lesser battery, but not PWRcell. If extended protection is needed, multiple batteries may be installed. With PWRcell, Generac is making good on the solar promise: Whole home power, clean and simple.

Get through the night on stored solar

The smart battery with enough power, capacity and capability to help customers save money through time of use programs and self supply, while also serving backup duty. If the battery is ever completely drained, it can restart the system using solar power alone, without the help of the grid. This capability cannot be replicated with AC coupled batteries.


  • Resilience – Black-start capability and giant capacity for extended outages
  • Self-supply – Switch to 100% solar power when you install a PWRcell battery
  • Time of Use – Automatically optimize your energy consumption and take advantage of new time of use rate structures
  • Zero Export – Produce and use your own solar energy, even when net-metering or feed-in is not an option
