Power Distribution

How distributed generation and standby power work

Peterson Power Systems, Inc. is your authorized source for Cat distributed generation and standby power equipment. Distributed generation is power generated on-site. This eliminates inefficiencies and also has the ability to lower costs, since energy does not need to be moved across distances.
