Generac Solar Battery

Pairing a Generac PWRcell battery with your solar array can help protect you against power outages and the rising costs of energy. It enables you to self-consume more energy from your solar array.

Generac PWRcell is one of several solar + storage options that StraightUp Solar is certified to install. Our solar experts provide custom storage solutions to fit the energy needs of each homeowner, whether you’re powering up a few appliances or want a whole home backup. 

StraightUp Solar is a Certified Installer for Generac PWRcell.

Every home has unique energy needs. Choosing the right storage solution for your home can be difficult. Your StraightUp Solar Project Developer will perform a custom assessment and can suggest the right solution for you. Currently, we offer Generac PWRcell, Enphase IQ Battery, and Tesla Powerwall.

No matter which battery option you go with, you may be eligible for federal and utility incentives. When you pair a battery with a solar array, the battery and storage system is included in the value of the array for the credit calculation. In 2022, the federal Investment Tax Credit is 26% of the array’s cost (credit drops to 22% in 2023).

A new battery incentive will soon be available for Illinois homeowners with Ameren Illinois or ComEd utility. More details coming soon.
