You can install these systems as steady power sources or emergency power systems for utility grids. You can depend on them during failures, surges, spikes, sags, planned power outages and other events.

Power in the Jungle
Isolated from the national grid, 470,000 Brazilian residents were suffering frequent brownouts and power rationing. Critical action was needed to provide a reliable source of power for schools, hospitals, homes and businesses. Oliveira Energia and local Cat dealer, Sotreq, found a way. Together, they completed a new power plant on time and on budget, and Cat equipment provides 107MW of power with 90+ percent availability.
