ADVANCED SOLAR CELL AND ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS
We offer a wide selection of Cat Microgrid solar systems from 10 kW to 100 MW.
There are many advantages to a Microgrid solar and energy storage system from Caterpillar. You optimize your fuel efficiency and minimize your operating costs, while choosing a flexible solution for your power production.
A microgrid also provides increased resilience and independence from other electricity networks. The combination of several energy sources gives you security in the event that an energy source suddenly fails and is not available.
CAT SOLAR CELLS MAKE SUSTAINABLE PROGRESS POSSIBLE
The Cat Microgrid system, which includes both photovoltaic solar modules and energy storage, is a local grid with its own energy production resources and its own loads. It works as a single controllable unit which produces electricity based on renewable energy.
WITH CAT MICROGRID YOU GET:
- Increased energy efficiency and independence from the electricity grid, which optimizes your total cost of ownership
- Smart Microgrids means efficient power that can be produced where and when needed without transmission cables and transformer losses.
- High performance and a scalable system designed and built from standardized blocks that make them easy and quick to install even in challenging environments.
CAT® MICROGRID PROVIDES COST-EFFECTIVE POWER PRODUCTION WITHIN AND OUTSIDE THE ELECTRIC NETWORK
By combining sustainable energy solutions, such as our photovoltaic solar modules and advanced energy storage systems, with traditional energy sources, such as generators, we can develop an energy system specifically designed for your needs. Cat Microgrid combines all power sources into a single, controllable unit that optimizes energy production and ensures you the lowest possible costs.

CAT PVC MP PHOTOVOLTAIC MODULE
Caterpillar’s advanced thin-film solar modules set new standards for the industry through improved performance. Compared to conventional silicone solar panels, Cat’s solar solutions offer:
- Unmatched performance. Reliable and predictable source of energy regardless of climate and application/use. Especially in areas with high temperature, high humidity, desert areas or along the coast, Cat’s solar cells generate more energy than traditional polycrystalline silicon/multicrystalline silicon solar cells.
- Tested and proven modules that meet industry requirements, including Thresher, IEC, ISO, UL, CSI, MCS, CEC and other international standards.
- Scalable and compatible modules ensure a simple and quick installation.
ENERGY STORAGE – BATTERIES AND CONTROL PANELS
The Cat BDP module offers the latest technology in energy conversion and storage. We offer different types of batteries for storing electricity, from classic lead-acid or lithium ion batteries, to newer models such as the rechargeable metal-air (Zinc-air) battery, which offers the most economical storage of electricity and has integrated control- and monitoring devices.
Cat’s solar cell and battery solutions are flexible and can be adapted exactly to your needs.
