What is the storage capacity of the Generac PWRcell System?

Three modules are present in a single Generac solar battery. Most homes will be able to keep running their key appliances during a power outage with this battery capacity. An automated transfer switch is built into the Generac PWRcell battery to keep your necessary connections powered up even after a power outage. You may need more battery units if you want to keep the entire house powered up. The average American home uses 893 kWh of electricity each month or about 29 kWh per day. If you assume that you use the most electricity while awake, it works out to less than 2kWh per hour. Thus, a 9kWh Generac PWRcell may keep running essential appliances for several hours. On one side, Your solar investment may have an additional expense due to the purchase of a solar battery. In contrast, a solar battery like the Generac PWRcell can increase the supply of useful solar energy you have in your hands in the event of a power outage or the event that extreme cold weather temporarily knocks out power in your area. Getting a Generac PWRcell home battery simultaneously with adding a solar panel system to your house in 2023 can be a smart move.
