What is the Generac PWRcell?
The PWRcell is a battery storage system that harnesses power from the sun or the electric
grid to help you reduce costs, your reliance on the electric grid, and be prepared for
unexpected power outages. Every PWRcell battery storage system consists of one PWRcell
inverter, a battery storage cabinet, and lithium ion battery modules.
How does a home battery storage system work?
PWRcell stores energy from either solar panels or the grid in lithium ion battery modules.
The inverter converts the stored energy from direct current (DC) energy into alternating
current (AC) energy which can be used to power your home during peak demand times or utility
How can a battery storage system help me save money?
During peak demand times, when utility prices are at their highest, the stored energy can be
deployed to power your home, helping you reduce costs. Also, a battery storage system can be
self-sustaining since solar panels don’t rely on power from the grid to continue
converting sunlight into electricity. The Generac PWRcell provides the opportunity to go off
the grid, completely eliminating your electric bill.
How can a battery storage system protect my home from power outages?
During a utility power outage, the energy stored in PWRcell can be deployed to provide
backup power. Your family and home stay safe and comfortable, providing you with the peace
of mind you deserve.
How much power can PWRcell provide?
Generac is proud to offer the largest energy storage capacity when compared to competitive
products on the market today. One PWRcell battery storage cabinet, consisting of six battery
modules, offers 17.1kWh of energy storage capacity. Combine up to two PWRcell battery

Is the installation process difficult?
Most PWRcell units can be installed in just a day. Generac recommends that all PWRcell
battery storage systems are installed by an authorized Generac installer to ensure that the

Where is the PWRcell installed in my home?
The inverter and battery storage cabinet are typically installed inside of an attached or
detached garage. If there is no garage on the property, the authorized installer will help
to identify another location within the home to accommodate the installation.
