Generac debuts an automatic transfer switch with home energy monitoring built in

Generac energy monitoring

Power outages from coast to coast have created a growing demand for home standby generators. With electric utility bills also on the rise, Generac Power Systems is answering the challenge of protecting homes from outages while also protecting bank accounts with a new energy-monitoring PWRview Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS).

With the launch of the PWRview ATS, Generac is the first to offer a Home Energy Monitoring System (HEMS) built into the switch. The PWRview ATS allows any home
that is being equipped with a home standby generator to immediately access powerful,
money-saving insights about the home’s energy consumption.

Because the PWRview monitor is already built into the transfer switch that is required
for the generator, PWRview insights are available as soon as the generator system is
installed. Homeowners can download the PWRview app to any smartphone to easily
monitor their home’s energy use from anywhere in the world, and unlock never-before seen information that can help lower energy bills by up to 20 percent.

The PWRview app gives homeowners access to their energy usage with a real time display and 24/7 remote access to their electricity consumption. Live dashboards provide deep insights to inform homeowners when they are wasting electricity and where their electricity is being used. Detailed bill tracking and consumption forecasts educate homeowners on energy habits to eliminate surprises on their monthly bill.

“The PWRview transfer switch makes saving energy and money easy,” said Russ Minick, Chief Marketing Officer for Generac. “Making HEMS an integral part of the transfer switch means generator owners can save enough money over time through more efficient energy consumption to offset a significant portion of the cost of the home standby system, while enjoying all the safety and security of a backup power solution.”
