Generac and Buildertrend collaborationGenerac Power Systems, Waukesha, Wis., a global designer and manufacturer of energy technology solutions and other power products, and Buildertrend, Omaha, Neb., a construction management software for homebuilders, remodelers and contractors, is adding the Generac suite of residential energy solutions to the Buildertrend platform. 

Generac’s suite of home standby generators, PWRcell solar + battery storage systems, and ecobee thermostats and smart home devices will be integrated into Buildertrend, making it easier for builders and homeowners to specify and integrate backup power and energy management tools into the design and construction process early. The move will potentially save thousands of dollars’ worth of installation costs, the companies said. 

“As the most used home standby generator brand within the builder segment, we’re seeing an unprecedented level of consumer demand for our residential products among home builders,” said Erik Anderson, vice president sales – electrical wholesale at Generac Power Systems. “Backup power has become a major trend in the building industry as builders realize the critical role that power plays in everyday life. We’re proud to work with Buildertrend to make residential generator installation easier than ever for the home building industry.” 

“Effective material management is a pivotal aspect of construction projects, driving efficiency and profitability,” said Brian Pavlick, senior vice president and general manager of materials management, Buildertrend. “By leveraging our comprehensive solution for receipt tracking and rebate processing, builders can maximize cost savings on name brands and enhance project outcomes, cementing their success in an increasingly competitive industry.”
