Electric utility rates are higher than ever, and they will only continue to rise. In the last 10 years alone, rates have increased 14%1. At Solar Sam, we understand that you have many more important things to pay for than your costly electric bill. Paying more for electricity only prevents you from investing in the things that matter the most to you, such as:
- Dream Vacation
- Home Improvement Projects
- Financial Freedom
- Child’s/Grandchild’s College Fund
- Retirement Savings
On top of rising rates, the electrical power grid continues to age. An aging grid makes it less reliable and more susceptible to power outages. Power outages can be dangerous and last for a substantial amount of time. They can leave you without lights, refrigeration, Internet access, and in some areas– water.Today, it’s more important than ever to have innovative solutions on hand that back your home and prepare you and your family for the unexpected. That’s why we love products such as the Generac PWR cell. The Generac PWR cell system is an all in one solar battery system that protects your home from power outages, rising electric rates, and keeps you at a peace of mind.

How Does PWRcell Work?
The PWRcell pairs with solar panels from most manufacturers. During the day, your home will run on your solar system and charge the battery while selling the extra power back to the grid. At night, your home will be powered by the battery and can be recharged with the PWRgenerator. During a power outage you will be able to run your home on the battery, recharge it with solar, and top off the battery power with the PWRgenerator if needed. At Solar Sam, we take a look at your energy needs first to determine the right panels for your home. After we determine your panel setup, we then prepare a plan for your PWR cell.
PWRcell’s flexible design allows for indoor and outdoor installations. Best of all, each component from the batteries to the inverter, down to the rapid shutdown device and solar array performance optimizers, are designed by Generac to work seamlessly together, making PWRcell easier and faster to install.
Whether you are looking to save money, protect yourself from rolling blackouts, or get off the grid completely, the Generac PWR cell is an optimal solution.
