Generac PWRcell, Energy Storage, Battery Storage, Solar Plus Storage, YSG Solar
January 6, 2021

The Generac PWRcell is one of the highest-quality energy storage solutions on the market today, using the best equipment available to capture and store electricity generated by your solar panels. This stored energy can then be used during peak demand times, when electricity costs are higher, allowing you to save on energy costs by cutting down on your utility bills. On top of these savings, energy storage systems also provide a backup energy source in the event of a power outage. 

Generac is always working to improve the PWRcell experience for energy customers, and improvements have been made to the overall Generac experience, including positive developments for:

  • Generac PWRfleet

  • Generac PWRzone

  • Generac PWRcell

Below, we’ll take a look at the key features of these three technologies.

Generac PWRfleet

The Generac PWRfleet offers a simple, one-stop solution for solar installers, allowing for the organization, management, and coordination of all installations in once place. The PWRfleet dashboard provides a comprehensive overview of all projects, making it easier to identify and solve customer issues, while also highlighting potential opportunities for system improvements. Using the information available via PWRfleet, installers can reduce overall operations & maintenance costs through the elimination of unnecessary, costly site visits. Using the Generac PWRfleet, solar installers can:

  • View live site status

  • Monitor consumption

  • View solar production

  • Monitor storage

  • View component-level diagnostics

It can be installed indoors or outdoors in virtually any climate, and is configurable to meet different budgets, lifestyles, and energy requirements. The key benefits of solar-plus-storage with Generac PWRcell include:

  • Protection for your home & family during power outages

  • Storage of clean, green solar energy for use during peak demand times

  • Lower utility bills & reduced energy costs

  • Greater independence & autonomy from the grid

PWRcell also comes with an optional PWRview app, allowing consumers to monitor energy consumption and battery usage while also tracking energy expenditure and savings.
