10 Best Solar Powered Home Generators For Power Outages

"Customers are telling us that with working from home, schooling from home, shopping from home, and entertaining from home, their level of anxiety about a power outage was very high," said Aaron Jagdfeld, president and CEO of Generac. "Having a home standby generator to ensure that they can safely shelter in place with their families should a power outage occur made this a must have item for many homeowners."

Generac Guardian-series home standby generators feature reliable Generac engines, designed and engineered in the U.S. And each is equipped with the remote monitoring capability of Mobile Link™, allowing owners to monitor the status of their generator on a phone, tablet or computer from anywhere in the world.

Solar + Storage

Solar + storage systems designed to harness the power of the sun and store that energy for use later are increasing in popularity. The favorable economics of solar and batteries coupled with the increasing need for protection against power grid disruptions is giving homeowners a new option for backup power.

It is critical that all homeowners have a plan for extended power outages. With the new, PWRcell automatic transfer switch (ATS), whole-home solar power can now be a reality. During a power outage, the PWRcell ATS disconnects from the grid, allowing the whole home to be isolated as electricity can be routed from the battery supply and/or solar array to the home's electrical panel. Because this integrated Generac system protects the entire home, the need to move or transfer circuits to a separate sub-panel can be eliminated, reducing electrical complexities.

The Generac PWRcell system integrates solar power generation with smart battery storage using a single, powerful inverter. When the grid goes down, this system picks up the load and restores power in seconds. 

The United States' aging power grid is tested every season, from hurricanes to power shut-off events to winter storms, putting homeowners in a defensive position. Knowing preparedness is key to resilience, Generac has also developed an online tool that tracks power outages from across the U.S. and Canada that allows visitors to drill down to the utility-provider level and see how many people are being impacted. Power Outage Central also acts as a resource that aims to help homeowners take action in a power outage." data-reactid="45">
