Generac Adds New Clean Energy Solutions, Help Homeowners Save

PWRCell Transfer Switch Solutions make whole-home backup possible, unlock savings

Waukesha, Wis., Feb. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- GeneracⓇ Power Systems (NYSE: GNRC) continues expansion in the clean energy business with today's release of a new line of Generac PWRcellTM Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) solutions. With these new products, Generac's PWRcell system represents the industry's first integrated whole-home energy storage system, where other systems require multiple storage devices or multiple vendors. Beginning today, customers with the new PWRcell ATS will no longer have to sacrifice necessities during a utility outage.

The smart technology in the new PWRcell switches helps homeowners save money and reduce hassle. In many energy efficient homes, this product enables homeowners to power their whole home during an outage rather than having to select which circuits have power and which do not. This solution also helps to reduce install time and cost by eliminating the need to wire a separate protected loads panel.

Additionally, customers who want to participate in renewable energy credit programs will no longer have to make a choice between making money from their solar system and having power during an outage. Because the PWRcell inverters are compatible with equipment required for utility company energy credit programs, PWRcell switch solutions make it possible for the inverter to support backup power applications and maximize potential earnings.

"We are continuously expanding our line of Clean Energy products and this is proof of Generac's commitment to the solar + storage industry," said Adam Schroeder, Clean Energy Solutions Product Manager at Generac. "The PWRcell switches are another tool to seamlessly manage a home's power."
