BayWa r.e. Solar Systems LLC partnered with Generac Power Systems, adding its advanced PWRcell battery system and integrated energy storage ecosystem components to its distribution line card for its nationwide network of residential solar contractors. Generac’s new system holds the promise of providing whole-home backup with just solar and storage.
As part of the agreement, Generac will provide its in-depth installer training program, which is focused on ensuring maximum code compliance and aligns with BayWa r.e.’s focus on facilitating high-quality installations by well-trained contractors to support a healthy solar industry.
“Generac is a highly bankable partner with a well-designed, integrated energy storage solution, which broadens our residential storage offerings,” said David Dunlap, VP of Operations for BayWa r.e. Solar Systems LLC. “Generac’s great brand recognition, solid training programs and continuous innovation are major reasons we’ve chosen to partner with them to address the growing demand from consumers for smart solar-plus-storage solutions.”
Generac recently introduced new products and capabilities to its PWRcell storage portfolio, which will be available to BayWa r.e. customers. The offering includes the PWRcell ATS whole-home load management and backup power system, high-capacity modular batteries rated up to 34 kilowatt-hours, increased inverter power, and an outdoor-rated enclosure.
“We’re excited to be working with BayWa r.e.,” said Russ Minick, Chief Marketing Officer and head of Generac’s Clean Energy business. “BayWa r.e. is committed to working with the best in the business, and we look forward to working together to bring customers the very best in solar+storage technology.”
