With a year-round average of between six and eight hours of sunshine every day, the Cayman Islands is ideally placed to take advantage of the latest technology in solar energy production and use.

If you’ve been looking for an economical, fully-integrated solar and battery storage system for your home, then the Generac PWRcell, now available in the Cayman Islands exclusively through Corporate Electric, could be the solution for you.

When it comes to solar energy, Wisconsin-based Generac is one of the world’s leading brands. Now, in an exclusive partnership with the Cayman Islands’ leading electric contractor, Corporate Electric,  Generac’s revolutionary PWRcell energy storage technology is available to homeowners across the islands.

With a year-round average of between six and eight hours of sunshine every day, the Cayman Islands is ideally placed to take advantage of the latest developments in solar energy production and use. PWRcell is the first fully integrated solar and battery storage system available on the market and not only helps you save money and be prepared for power outages, it’s environmentally friendly.

During the day, PWRcell stores energy from either solar panels or draws off-peak power from the electrical grid. Then, during peak demand times, when utility prices are at their highest, the energy stored in the PWRcell can be discharged to power your home, saving you money.

And, in the event of a utility power outage, the energy stored in PWRcell can be discharged to provide backup power, keeping your family and home safe, comfortable, and with uninterrupted power for hours.

Only Generac offers a modular design that allows you to expand your storage capacity as your power needs evolve. PWRcell’s standard system provides 8.6kWh of storage capacity and includes the PWRcell inverter, the battery storage cabinet, and three lithium ion battery modules. For those looking for larger capacity, there are 11,4kWh, 14.3kWh, and 17.1kWh options available, using up to six battery modules. The system comes with a 10-year limited warranty.

Even greater savings are made available through the PWRview app that allows you to monitor your home’s electricity consumption and energy information conveniently from your smartphone, tablet, or computer. PWRview lets you see real-time energy usage at a glance, including daily consumption, solar generation, and battery usage, as well as bill estimates and savings.

In a comparison with other storage systems currently on the market, PWRcell comes out a clear winner. For example, in a side-by-side comparison with the popular Tesla Powerwall, Generac’s PWRcell provided 27% more battery capacity, 34% more continuous power, and 43% more peak power.

And PWRcell combines fewer complex components, which allows for easier and faster installation and flexibility in your choice of solar panels. The PWRcell system can be paired with most DC solar panels (sold separately).

The bottom line: Generac PWRcell’s revolutionary energy capture and storage technology, coupled with Corporate Electric’s support and installation process, is helping make the Cayman Islands – and the planet – cleaner and energy smarter, as well as offering customers safety, security, energy independence and a great return on investment.
