Cat® Puts Sustainability In Action By Delivering A Wide Range Of Power Solutions

Save with Flexible Power Generation / Microgrids

For Toromont and Caterpillar, sustainability is not a new concept. It’s part of who we are and what we do every single day. From alternative fuels to solar power, Toromont Power Systems puts sustainability in action by delivering a wide range of power solutions that make your operations more efficient and environmentally friendly.
Managed Energy Services

Keep your industries producing, communities developing, and people connected. Caterpillar is at the forefront of the energy transition, integrating renewable power with smart energy storage and conventional diesel or gas fuelled power generation. 

The Cat Microgrid system, which contains both photovoltaic solar modules and energy storage, provides: 

  • Increased energy efficiency with no reliance on the grid and optimal total cost of ownership.
  • Smart Microgrids mean efficient power that can be produced where and when it's needed without transmission lines and transformer losses.
  • High performance, scalable system designed and built using standardized building blocks that are easy and quick to install even in challenging environments.

Choose from a Flexible Range of Power Sources

CAT photovoltaic solar modules

Powered by advanced thin-film solar modules that are setting the industry benchmark with improved performance over conventional silicon solar panels, the Cat Solar Microgrid system offers:

  • Superior Performance. Reliable and predictable energy in all climates and applications particularly in high temperature, high humidity, extreme desert, and coastal environments where it generates more energy than multi-crystalline silicon solar modules.
  • Robust Modules. Modules are independently tested to pass accelerated life and stress tests beyond industry standards (including Thresher, IEC, ISO, UL, CSI, MCS, CEC and other international standards) and come with warranty protection.
  • A Scalable, Compatible, and Easy to Install System. A fully scalable, pre-engineered solar microgrid system.


The Cat BDP module offers state-of-the-art energy conversion and storage technologies. This includes the Cat power electronics system, renowned for its operational capabilities in harsh environments, as demonstrated by its use in the Cat D7E track-type tractor.

World-class power, electronic insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) seamlessly control the charge and discharge of the energy storage, providing another tried and tested Caterpillar technology that is fully operational in the field with support ranging from Cat parts availability to service tools.

Energy storage technologies from traditional lead-acid to lithium ion can be combined according to the needs of your application.

Complete control of your system with our microgrid master controller (MMC) and Cat® Connect

The MMC manages every source in the entire Cat Microgrid system, including main-grid when connected, keeping loads energized all the time, with high quality power at the lowest cost.

Cat Connect helps you track and manage the operation of a smart microgrid system, confirm desired cost savings, flag potential problems, perform remote troubleshooting, and identify opportunities for further operational or system enhancement.



Providing all the reliability and durability you need, Caterpillar offers the industry’s widest range of diesel, gas and dual fuel generator sets; automatic transfer switches, uninterruptible power systems, and switchgear for seamless integration. From configuration to installation, operation and aftercare, your local Cat dealer is committed to your success, to ensure the Cat generator set you buy today is the one you trust years from now.
