Generac continues to build out its solar + storage product portfolio. This week, Generac Industrial Power (part of Generac Power Systems) unveiled the all new SBE series of stationary battery energy storage systems (BESS). The SBE series will be available later this year.
The SBE series will be offered as standalone energy storage products, as well as paired with Generac’s existing lineup of generators and other technologies including transfer switches, breakers, remote connectivity solutions and the Concerto distributed energy resource management system.
The new stationary battery energy storage system is available in energy capacities ranging from 200 kWh to 1,000 kWh, sized that enable commercial and industrial (C&I) customers to save on energy costs by reducing peak charges and taking advantage of utility time-of-use rates.
The products can also provide site resilience during brownouts or power quality issues, and back up critical loads during shorter duration blackouts.
Customers also have an opportunity to earn additional revenue by monetizing the energy storage asset to support grid resilience. Generac’s SBE series is the latest addition to a portfolio of products and technologies aimed at helping commercial and industrial customers meet their current and future energy goals.
“Energy management today increasingly means balancing a combination of carbon reduction, energy savings and energy resilience goals,” said Erik Wilde, executive vice president of Industrial – Americas at Generac.
