Excited for cheap backup battery storage for homes to hit the market soon. The Tesla Powerwall coupled with solar will keep you up and running pretty much indefinitely, but they're about 50% too expensive as of today.

It'll be a good day when we see 20kWh battery storage on the Frontpage for $2,800!

You're better off getting the 3500 predator from harbor freight.

How is $512 even a good deal??? Generac is overpriced to begin with and there are other brands out there that are just as good at a much lower price.

I'm specifically talking about the 2000 watt Wen inverter generator. These hit $350 -$375 at least quarterly. I have 2 of them going on 3 years now without any problems. They get used at least 10hrs a week too. Just regular oil changes at every 60hrs and spark plug changes every other year.

Appreciate the deal but we just had the Champion 1600/2000 from Home Depot for $300 recently and earlier this year and typically see $350-400 for similar gens, hard to stomach $512 for this.

Always nicr to see people posting gen deals. Me i like the iPower 1600/2000 from Costco. Reg 450 but goes on sale for 400. Yamaha engine, included parallel kit, batyery charging cable, and 30amp rv adapter plug. Parallel kits are always makorly ovetpriced so included is nice.

They really ought to allow the cars to act as battery backups. Massive batteries that would allow homes to run for days.

Even my 2018 Volt has a sizable 18.4 kw battery pack. You can draw up to 3kw max with an inverter and the gasoline engine will run when the main battery pack becomes low. It will run automatically and charge up the battery and turn off until the pack run low again. It will go for about a week straight.

Yeah, I'll never understand that. Maybe they will soon with battery tech improving so quickly.

The idea is certainly degradation. Cycling a car's battery pack every day is gonna cut it's life in half, but it would be nice for emergencies. I guess they'd also rather sell you both the car AND the house backup battery!

The whole world is gonna change when a good price point hits in 2020/21/22. Even Generac just bought a battery company to pivot from whole house generators to battery packs. Exciting times.
