Generac is a Fortune 1000 American manufacturer of backup power generation products for residential, light commercial and industrial markets.

Wisconson — Generac Power Systems announced it has made a minority investment in Wallbox.

The minority investment includes adding a Generac seat on Wallbox’s board of directors and a global commercial agreement to provide Generac’s residential and commercial customers with the next generation of energy management systems.

Through the execution of the commercial relationship, Generac will offer its customers Wallbox’s full suite of EV charging solutions, including L2 AC chargers and its bidirectional charger, Quasar 2.

Generac’s 60+ years of experience distributing energy resilience devices and its extensive network of approximately 8,700 dealers will be a strategic addition to Wallbox’s distribution network in the U.S. Generac’s distribution of Wallbox’s technology, including its DC fast charger, Supernova, and installation services through COIL, will accelerate the development of energy ecosystems for businesses with public access such as supermarkets, shopping centers, and restaurants by providing access to reliable DC fast chargers that can add up to 100 miles to an EV in ten minutes.

As consumers and businesses continue to electrify legacy systems and EV adoption accelerates, power consumption is projected to more than double by 2050.

Additionally, the share of renewables in the power mix is projected to more than double in the next 20 years. With that, the need for sophisticated technology that can manage energy generation, storage, and distribution between the current grid and next generation EVs is critical in order to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy.

“This commercial relationship supports our Powering A Smarter World enterprise strategy and the continued build out of our residential, commercial and industrial energy ecosystems,” said Aaron Jagdfeld, president and CEO of Generac. “Our first joint effort will accelerate Generac’s entrance into EV charging with leading technology including a dual branded home bidirectional EV charger. We plan to continue to integrate across Wallbox and Generac technologies and leverage our collective brand strength to extend a broader line of residential and business solutions.”

“We believe the commercial relationship between Wallbox and Generac supports our joint vision of accelerating the energy transition through innovative and accessible energy solutions,” said Enric Asunción, co-founder and CEO of Wallbox. “Adding Generac, the market leader in U.S. residential standby power, to our growing distribution network will provide a level of accessibility that does not exist in the marketplace today. We’re excited to welcome them as a collaborator and investor, and look forward to delivering increased value to customers and shareholders.”
