Crop Irrigation on Farm Land

When Dependability Is A Must

Uninterrupted and reliable power is especially important throughout the growing season or in case of emergency power outages to make sure that a business can run as normal.  Our standby and rental emergency generators help the industry keep operations running smoothly during what could be a costly power outage. From dairy farms to greenhouse facilities, Cat generators can provide power for all your agricultural needs.

Whether it’s an estimate, installation, or a scheduled maintenance check, Foley Power Solutions can help you to find the best solution for your needs so you can continue running a successful operation.

Reliable Power Solutions for Agriculture

Crop Production

Harvesting operations can be impacted by the loss of power outage. From farmers who rely on computerized equipment, including automated picking machines to automated water sprinklers and sprayers that help ripen fruit -- all are impacted by the loss of power.

Installing and maintaining a reliable commercial generator can prevent the heavy loss of profits and damage to goods and products.

Dairy Farms

Dairy farms employ the use of computerized systems that keep track of their dairy cows’ location, milking schedules, and timetables for milking. Electric milking machines rely on stable, reliable, and continuous power sources.

Cold storage warehouses that keep milk and other dairy products would also be in jeopardy if there was a loss of power or total power outage. Modern methane power technology is a solution that works well for dairy and livestock operations.

Livestock Production
Cattle & Livestock

Beef, pork, and poultry production utilize equipment powered by electric motors to provide reliable sources of feed and water. Buildings require electrically powered ventilation and temperature control systems to keep animals healthy.

Any interruption in power can impact the health of the animals. Most buildings will be equipped with standby generator sets when utility power is available as a primary source.


Greenhouses require energy to thrive. Foley Power Solutions is here to help make your business better with power built to cut costs and boost plant health. Cat® combined heat and power (CHP) systems are engineered to produce electricity for your operation while heating your facility. Fueled by natural gas, our CHP generators for greenhouse facilities run at an efficiency of more than 90%.

A Cat after-treatment system filters exhaust gas, rich in carbon dioxide, to be used as plant root fertilizer. Whether it’s an estimate, installation, or on-site service, we’re committed to ensuring you get quality from our systems and expert support from our Cat team.

Aquaculture fish hatchery

Fresh water fish are typically raised in ponds stocked with large populations. To avoid suffocating these densely populated fish, the water must be continually aerated.

Aerators that are used on catfish and other fish farms inject oxygen into the ponds using mechanical or electrically driven pump motors frequently powered with generators.

Microgrid Installation At Pork Producer

The Rathe family has been in the agriculture business for nearly 140 years. Today, Steve Rathe and his partners oversee about 30,000 hogs across six sites near Waverly, Iowa. As an owner of Sitruc Pork LLC, Rathe relied on the local utility and backup generator sets to power his operations at one of these sites.



Out on the prairie near the small town of Wallace, Kansas, Earnest Bertrand made plans to build a concrete grain elevator. He needed reliable power to construct the facility and reliable power to run it. He chose a Caterpillar generator set.

Combined heat and power (CHP) systems provide a profitable and sustainable solution for greenhouses. By generating thermal energy and electrical energy simultaneously, a CHP system can yield a fuel efficiency rate over 90% versus the typical boiler efficiency of 40-50%.

Buck Creek Farm - Aerial


Shocklee is a contract farmer for a national food company, raising nearly 500,000 chickens annually at his facility 20 minutes south of Owensboro, KY. “Solar energy appealed to me,” Shocklee says. “Not only is it a convenient form of renewable energy, but I saw it as a way to insulate me from future price increases.”

Caterpillar Powers Idaho Dairy with Renewable Biogas Energy


With 60,000 cows and 13 facilities, Bettencourt Dairies is one of the largest dairy farm operations in Idaho. Bettencourt Dairies worked with Caterpillar to improve air quality, reduce carbon emissions, and generate profitable renewable energy via Idaho's largest dairy waste-to-energy project to date.
