Reliable, sustainable power for a changing world

Cat products are reliable and sustainable, and they help enhance the deployment of renewable power, such as solar, wind, and hydro. Renewables provide intermittent power, while Cat products provide firm on-demand capacity.

Cat products are sustainable. They can run on clean fuels today, such as hydrogen, biogas, and renewable natural gas (RNG).

Trust Caterpillar to be your power partner, helping you achieve environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals, resiliency, and cost objectives while responding to your power needs.

Excess energy is stored for stabilization as well as for use during unfavorable conditions, such as cloudy days and nighttime. Generator sets supplement the system by powering the microgrid when energy from other sources is unavailable.

What we offer that meets your needs

Cat Electric Power provides cost-effective, reliable power for customers supplementing centralized power generation with solar, battery storage, engine generators, and microgrids. Gas generators give you the ability to peak shave while helping you meet your ESG goals.

  • Solar provides sustainable, low-cost power.
  • Energy/battery storage consumes excess power and can be easily dispatched to deploy that electricity during peak periods or power outages, for grid support, or for time shifting of energy.
  • Gas-fueled generator sets (natural gas, renewable natural gas, hydrogen) are modular and relocatable, so they can easily be deployed where they’re most needed in the distribution network. Some gas generators now have fast response and load capabilities. Gas gensets also have the capability to run on alternative fuels.
  • Microgrids can integrate the above technologies into one system.

We also offer engineering design expertise and rental power solutions, in addition to our customer parts and service commitment to whole lifecycle support of your power system.

  • We will continue to work alongside you, our customer, to identify your challenges, understand your requirements, and deliver solutions that help you be more successful.
  • Your local Cat dealer is your source for ongoing service and support.
  • Caterpillar will provide expert consultation on how to design, install, and maintain your utility, including ensuring future grid code compliance.
