Cat® Microgrid

Cat® Microgrid

Powering the grid. Even when you’re off it.

 

Whether it’s solar, energy storage or a little of both, alternative sources of energy enable sustainable work to be done nearly anywhere on earth.

Microgrid technology is designed to provide our customers with a constant stream of reliable energy regardless of external forces. A combination of generators, solar module and energy storage make up a complete solution that delivers energy to worksites regardless of location or time of day. Cat is committed to providing solutions designed to make our customers more efficient and more productive, all while being sensitive to the physical world around us.

Microgrid technology is already at work at the Caterpillar Proving Grounds in Tuscon, Arizona. The facility demanded a solution powerful enough for massive equipment, workshops and a large office building, all located miles from traditional power sources. Previously, the operation used nearly 250,000 gallons of diesel every year to power their generators. Microgrid took advantage of the abundant solar energy and cut the amount of fuel required to run the entire site by 33 percent.

No matter how big or how far your operation is, Microgrid is equipped to power it in the most efficient way possible.
