Power and Financial Solutions Year Round

Install generator sets that grow your business.

Greenhouses require energy to thrive — they require time and resources. We’re helping make business better with power built to cut costs and boost plant health. Cat® combined heat and power (CHP) systems are engineered to produce electricity for your operation while heating your facility. Fueled by natural gas, our CHP generator sets run at an efficiency of more than 90 percent. A Cat aftertreament system filters exhaust gas, rich in carbon dioxide, to be used as plant root fertilizer.

Even sell excess energy to your local grid with our utility grade paralleling switchgear and controls.

Whether it’s an estimate, installation or on-site service, we’re committed to ensuring you get quality from our systems and expert support from our Cat team.

Cat Generator Sets: How Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Works in Greenhouses

Combined heat and power systems provide a profitable and sustainable solution for greenhouses. By generating thermal energy and electrical energy simultaneously, a CHP system can yield a fuel efficiency rate over 90% versus the typical boiler efficiency of 40-50%. Typical payback on these systems is less than 3-4 years.
