WAUKESHA, Wis., and SOUTH PLAINFIELD, N.J., Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Generac Power Systems (NYSE: GNRC) and Momentum Solar have forged a strategic relationship that will accelerate the U.S. residential adoption of solar + storage.
The new agreement will enable Momentum, the largest privately-owned residential solar installer in the United States, to provide Generac technology solutions to homeowners for solar plus whole home clean back-up power.
Momentum CEO Arthur Souritzidis said, "We chose Generac PWRcell because of their innovative integrated system design, the Generac brand and reliability, the most powerful energy storage system available in the market today and the ease of installation."
"Generac is very excited and honored to partner with Momentum Solar," said Russ Minick, chief marketing officer for Generac. "Momentum is one of the premier organizations in our industry and I am confident this is the beginning of a great win-win partnership. Momentum is hyper-focused on delivering the highest quality customer experience and they share our goal of accelerating the adoption of affordable clean energy. We couldn't be more excited."
Since its introduction in 2019, Generac's PWRcell battery has been the most powerful energy storage system available to homeowners seeking energy savings and backup power. Now, Generac has improved its leading position in the solar + storage spec war by unlocking additional backup power and the introduction of the premium "EX" lithium-ion battery module.
Generac PWRcell inverters boast continuous backup power capacity of up to 11kw, and up to 9kW with a single battery. The new EX battery module features more battery capacity and improved thermal performance, allowing that leading power output to be used for longer durations when compared with the standard PWRcell battery modules. PWRcell batteries installed with the optional EX modules will now store up to 18 kWh of usable capacity. The new PWRcell EX modules, available in early October, allow for higher performance across a broader range of temperatures, making them ideal for outdoor installations.
