Microgrid Technology Powers Foley Location

Solar microgrid commercial installation at Foley Equipment’s Kansas City location. Cat® Microgrid systems combine renewable technology with traditional power generation, customized to fit any need – including our own.

Cat Microgrid Installation

Committed to sustainable energy and savings on energy bills, Foley Equipment built a Cat® Microgrid on the roof our Kansas City location in the early Spring of 2018.

Working with Cromwell Solar, we installed over 1,500 CAT-branded thin-film solar panels to produce 172kW of power, about one-third of the building’s energy use. The solar array is currently the largest, on-site solar installation for a commercial business in Kansas City, Missouri and is projected to pay for itself in five years.
