Commercial Business

Your tenants count on you to keep their employees safe and businesses profitable. You need to balance this with the rising costs of heating and powering a commercial building. Reduce your operating costs by implementing a Cat® CHP, or cogeneration system to simultaneously provide electricity for electrical loads and heat for a facility's thermal requirements.

Benefits from Cat power generation system include:

  • Up to 90 percent energy efficiency
  • Decreased energy costs versus separate heat/electrical generation systems
  • Reduced emissions

If capturing waste heat is not feasible, you may still be able to implement a distributed generation system to locally produce power for the facility, or a standby power plant. Either option is especially viable when:

  • Local electric grid is unreliable
  • Generators can be applied during peak times of day to avoid high utility charges.

The Cat team provides customized power solutions, including the required mechanical equipment and controls to capture and transfer engine thermal energy. We also offer exhaust emissions for highly regulated emission environments, and utility grade Cat paralleling switchgear to sell excess electricity generated to the local electric grid.
