Generac Grid Services
Generac Grid Services, a business group of Generac, is changing the way the world generates and uses electricity. From distributed energy solutions to grid-balancing software, Generac Grid Services accelerates the transition to a more reliable power grid.
Generac Grid Services, a business group within Generac, is a leading designer and manufacturer of energy technology solutions and other power products focused on changing how the world generates and uses electricity. We are accelerating the global transition to a cleaner, more reliable power grid via turnkey solar + storage solutions, backup generator connectivity, DER orchestration and virtual power plant (VPP) software deployment.
Our real-time energy balancing platform, Concerto™, is the only technology-agnostic DER optimization and control platform with capabilities and use cases that span the entire spectrum of asset types, grid services and energy flexibility opportunities—addressing both grid supply and demand. From C&I process loads to utility-scale renewables and in-home devices like EV chargers and smart thermostats, Concerto is a multiservice platform that aggregates and controls load flexibility from limitless numbers and ranges of grid edge assets. From advanced demand response to energy market dynamic dispatch and highly complex distribution optimization, Concerto is a comprehensive software solution for DER orchestration and control.
In addition to software as a service, Generac Grid Services’ partner ecosystem is a key competitive advantage. The partner ecosystem enables utilities and customers alike to connect a broad range of grid edge devices into VPPs that reduce stress on the grid, enable customers to offset energy costs and allows inclusion of DER in energy markets. Using Concerto, dormant flexible energy inherent in DER such as backup generators, smart thermostats, water heaters, storage batteries and countless other devices, can easily and quickly come online. Utilities achieve a cleaner grid with improved reliability and reduced cost-to-serve while end customers receive direct financial incentives and a higher grid stability—creating grid resiliency and shared profitability for all.
We offer a wide range of services to help utilities recruit, enroll, dispatch and manage customers to participate VPP programs, including:
- Program marketing materials creation
- Customer recruitment
- Call center support
- DER product installation and maintenance and more
