November 1, 2021 – San Jose, CA based company Power Center+ has partnered with Duracell to introduce the Duracell Power Center product line of Home Energy Storage solutions (www.duracellpowercenter.com) in North America and the Caribbean.
The Duracell Power Center product line will consist of 5 kW and 10 kW inverter outputs with batteries expandable from 14 kWh to 84 kWh.

These systems are cost-effective solutions for homeowners looking to reduce their energy bill and increase their energy security from natural disasters and grid failures all while helping the environment.
