This home with a PV Solar Array and a Generac PWRcell Battery Storage relies on solar power for its energy needs. The Battery Storage can charge from solar or grid power and operate independently during a blackout or outage.
All the Promise of Solar Power Without the Limitations
Norwall PowerSystems added the Generac PWRcell Solar + Battery Storage Clean Energy system to their product line beginning January 1, 2021. PWRcell is a solar energy storage system that supplies power to the main circuit breaker panel for a home or business. PWRcell features and benefits include advantages not found in competing products from Tesla, LG, or Encharge.
Homeowners need an environmentally friendly whole home power solution, not just a few circuits. Generac PWRcell delivers on the promise of solar with energy from the sun to power your whole home and use less energy from the utility.
Travis LaVallie at Norwall said, “We couldn’t be more excited about a new product line. PWRcell Clean Energy scales from 9kWh to 36kWh and runs your air conditioners and other heavy loads if you need them.”

The scalability cited by Travis refers to the storage capacity of the PWRcell system. A PWRcell Battery Cabinet holds three to six PWRcell Battery Modules. Each Module adds 3.0 kWh of usable storage capacity with a minimum of three battery modules in each cabinet. Configurations start at 9.0kWh and scale to 18kWh for a single cabinet, and up to 36kWh for two cabinets. Each system is currently limited to two battery cabinets.
Note: Battery Modules are rated at 3.6kWh but are limited to 3.0kWh of usable energy to prevent damage to the module.
The PWRcell components are designed and rated for outdoor use with NEMA 3R enclosures.

Choose cleaner energy from solar power with Generac PWRcell Solar + Battery Storage Clean Energy System from Norwall.
PWRcell Clean Energy Solar Power Storage Components
The PWRcell Inverter takes energy from the PV Array (solar panels) and uses it to charge the batteries and power the home. While disconnected from the grid, the inverter uses power from the PV array to power the house while it keeps the batteries charged. When the sun goes down, the inverter supplies power from the PWRcell Battery Cabinet to entire home.
Unlike many systems that may shut down the array during an outage or blackout, PWRcell uses that vital energy to power the home instead of relying on stored energy in the PWRcell Battery Modules.
The PWRcell Automatic Transfer Switch islands the system from the grid in less than a second. Many homeowners won’t even notice the transition.
