$0.00 MSRP

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.

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 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable Back-up Power Option Overall, very disappointed with my pwrcell home backup solar system. It never works when I need it to. Consistent power generation when the grid connected power is fine, but the system fails almost 100% of the time when the power goes out. The system failover seldom kicks on automatically and in many cases the system produces an inverter error that prevents power flow into the house from the panels or battery. It was a useless investment. If the system didn't cost seventy thousand dollars to purchase and install, I would replace it with something else. Don't buy Generac.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I don’t know I can’t review because I’ve been in hold for 30 minutes. I can tell you that I’ve tried three 800 numbers and can’t get anyone in the phone to talk about what I’d like to design So I can only rate them on customer service which is “0”

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken Parts and No Service PWRCELL works ok. Solar panels, PV links and snap coupling seems to be a poor design because these break yearly. PWRCELL can’t charge without the solar working. It would be nice for an option for wind to charge as a back up to the poor performing solar.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont waste your money on this product For the second time within two weeks Generac parts have been faulty and now cause me to not utilize my solar system because their faulty inverter installed within the last three weeks is now waiting on parts for the second time to "hopefully" work. When called for answers on parts I was told they could not provide me the homeowner the information on my system repair. Summary: Faulty equipment and possibly the worst customer service with regards to actually taking care of the consumer. The day the system was set to go live it crashed and does not work at all!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You'll be lucky if it works for more than a couple of weeks I've had these products for about 3 years now, and during those 3 years I think everything has worked for maybe a grand, combined total of six months. PVcells, the inverter, the battery- theyve all experienced a nonstop parade of errors and failures. On top of the shoddy product, Generac will also less than helpful. One of our most recent issues (I would love to say 'most recent' but this morning our PVlinks were giving us errors, again) was our battery experiencing an error which disconnected it from the system. I spend months, four months to be exact, going back and forth with Generac. I kept being told a part was on backorder, or this or that had been escalated, or their "tech guys," were looking at it. FINALLY they send someone out, who performed perform a very simple fix they said generac could have done themselves. So, fourth months waiting, calling, and stressing just because no one at generac could be bothered to actually look at my case. This is just the tip of the iceberg, but illustrates the bigger issue- these products dont work reliably, and Generac doesnt seem to have much of an interest in honoring their commitment. The solar company who installed them for us is filing for bankruptcy and also suing Generac, blaming their products and failures to abide by their commitments. At first, I didnt know who to blame for my system being garbage but now after dealing with Generac for about a year that answer is obvious: Generac is the problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have a Generac power cell installed December 20 I cannot recommend Generac power cell. I have had constant problems with the system. Had multiple work orders requested. It took many weeks for the repairs and had to come back multiple times for the same repair. My system has been down more than it has run in the last two years. I have gone to the company that Generac recommended for service and found a Generac did not give them a work order. Therefore, it was a waste of that company’s time and the problem is not fixed. When the company the Generac requested to do the repairs came to my house. They had to wait on hold for as much as two hours for a Generac technician to tell them how to do repairs. I am still paying my electric bill because of the lack of service from Generac. I do not recommend this system for anybody

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer be aware! My system has been installed for two years and still, to this day, breaks ever time it rains. Complete pos. It is one of the most expensive regrets of my life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overall low-quality equipment not market-ready We have the Generac PWRCell system with storage battery. The first inverter we had installed was bad and they had to install a new one. Our PV Links blew internal fuses that caused them not to work. Fuses are a great safety feature, but it turns out the cause was the bad SnapRSs. The 1st generation of SnapRSs were bad and caused our system to lose all production for about 6 months while waiting for Generac to mfr replacements. Currently our battery has a blown fuse. The fuse has been on backorder from Generac for 8 months. So we've been without battery backup since then. We also have the Smart Management Modules installed on our 220V circuits. The module on our car charger circuit went bad about 2 months ago, so we've been without home car charging since then. The technician who recently came out to diagnose the issue said it will realistically be about 4 months to go back and forth with the Generac warranty department. We've had our system for about 3 years now, and it's been down or at reduced capacity for about 18 months. It's astounding that a company with a seemingly good reputation could sell such an incredibly bad product.
