Microgrids for Agriculture

Your business thrives on being independent, so reduce your reliance on the power grid by taking command of your energy supply with a microgrid solution from Caterpillar. Your local Cat® dealer can help design a customized system that leverages abundant renewable sources of energy to deliver the power you need reliably and cost effectively.

How it works

A Cat microgrid power system helps you better manage the energy costs of your agriculture operations through a customized solution that integrates renewable power into your business. We can help you generate your own power through an optimized combination of photovoltaic solar modules, energy storage, and advanced monitoring and control systems.

Smart microgrids from Caterpillar generate power efficiently wherever and whenever it’s needed without transmission lines and transformer losses.

Our high-performance, scalable systems are designed and built using standardized building blocks that are easy and quick to install – even in the most challenging environments – and can grow as your operations grow.
