MICROGRID SOLUTIONS

Cat microgrids for rural electrification are completely integrated and standardized renewable energy systems. These products are fully customizable and scalable to meet your power needs today and for future expansions. Designed for reliability, repeatability, and rapid deployment, this cost-effective, single-source solution is supported and installed by Stowers Power Systems. We’re built to fit your needs.




CAT PHOTOVOLTAIC MODULE OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT

The Module Plus mounting system is designed for high installation velocity. Pre-assembled structure and harnessing minimizes installation time and errors.

Single- and three-phase inverter options are available for 50 Hz and 60 Hz applications to maximize installation design flexibility

The Cat® thin film, high-efficiency modules provide a proven performance advantage over conventional crystalline silicon solar modules. Generating more energy than competing modules with the same power rating, the Cat PVT115 module delivers superior performance and reliability to our customers.


  • Nominal Power: 115W per panel
  • Module Type: Advanced thin film solar
  • Application: Compatible with 1000V and 1500V plant architectures






CAT ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM STANDARD EQUIPMENT1.5 KW-4.5 KW

Zinc-air energy modules are ideally suited for long duration energy storage.

Based upon its proprietary battery technology, the Cat® Energy Storage Solution (ESS) is capable of covering ultra-long outages to full depth of discharge. The core system is tolerant of high temperatures and unaffected by frequent long or short power cycles. The Cat ESS provides reliable, long duration uninterruptible power for telecom BTS and microwave backhaul operations.

The Cat ESS is designed to interface directly with the existing -48V DC bus and is compatible with all -48V rectifier equipment for its charging needs. It can be used with all on-grid AC power confirguations either with or without an installed backup generator set.


  • Rated Power: 1.5 kW to 4.5 kW
  • Energy Storage: Zinc-air cells
  • Enclosure Rating: IP 55, suitable for outdoor installation
  • Operating Temperature:  0°C to 50°C
  • Storage Temperature: -20°C to 50°C



Targeted at telecom applications that are subjected to a severe load shedding grid environment. Targeted at applications with poor, erratic electrical service that consists of random, non-scheduled outages or areas where scheduled, rolling utility outages occur. Typical applications include installations where scheduled, rolling regional utility outages occur every 1-2 hours continuously during peak hours and off-hours.





ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM STANDARD EQUIPMENT .75 KW TO 4.5 KW

Zinc-air energy modules are ideally suited for long duration energy storage and have power modules to provide short duration, high power energy storage.

These modules have 24/7 monitoring of site performance through Cat telematics and include control signals to remote start an on-site generator set in the event that the ESS reaches low capacity due to extended power outages.

These are targeted at telecom applications with poor, erratic electrical service that consists of random, non-scheduled outages. Typical applications include peak shaving, load shifting, and backup power applications.


  • Energy Storage: Zinc-air cells
  • Enclosure Rating: IP 55, suitable for outdoor installation
  • Operating Temperature:  0°C to 50°C
  • Storage Temperature: -20°C to 50°C
