There has been an increasing move toward natural gas fueled standby power systems in recent years. Typically installed with an automatic transfer switch (ATS) or paralleling switchgear control for multiple generators, these generator sets sense when a utility outage occurs and automatically starts the backup power generator system transferring power to the emergency source. When the normal grid power returns, the control system automatically switches back and shuts down the emergency generator.
Whatever your application, standard or customized Cat switchgear provides the most reliable power generation and electrical distribution system capabilities to protect your facility from outages and provide the power you need… whenever you need it.
Approximately 1.2 billion people live without access to electricity, mostly in rural communities which are highly dispersed with low populations. This makes it cost prohibitive to bring in utility sources. Electricity for basic services – lights, fans, computers, television and phones – has a significant impact.
