  Solutions for your Power Applications

Cummins Power Generation has product solutions for all your power needs. Which one is best depends on the application and how the power will be used. To learn more about what we offer and how we have helped other customers, choose an application below.

Emergency and Standby Power

Today’s world depends on power for uninterrupted data flow, communication and services. Businesses and institutions worldwide use standby power systems from Cummins Power Generation for continuous operation and to comply with life and safety codes. Mission–critical operations also rely on our systems for 24/7 power reliability.

Peaking Power

Fast, flexible power solutions are needed to meet peak demand. For high-hour peaking, Cummins Power Generation offers lean-burn gas generator sets that feature low emissions and sound levels that comply with the most stringent standards. For seasonal or short-term peaking needs, we deliver fast, economical rental solutions.


Cogeneration, also known as Combined Heat and Power (CHP), is the production of two kinds of energy-usually electricity and heat-from a single source of fuel. Cogeneration often replaces the traditional, more inefficient, method of supplying multiple forms of energy such as purchasing electricity from the power grid and separately burning natural gas or oil in a furnace to produce heat or steam.

Rental Power

Cummins Power Generation offers, on a rental basis, a wide range of mobile power systems and services to meet your short- and long-term needs. Reliable, cost-effective power solutions anywhere in the world. Whether you need prime power, back up power or standby/peaking power, Cummins Power Generation has the solution. Available with skilled assistance, set-up, service and support, on a 24-7 basis.

Energy Solutions

We develop custom solutions to meet your energy needs, whether for combined heat and power, a waste-to-energy plant, continuous power generation or peaking applications. We work with you to develop power plants that combine our centralized "factory" knowledge with our distributors' local knowledge and proximity.

We provide a variety of energy solutions for the gas-fired, mid-power, distributed generation market in the 2 MW to 20 MW range.

Pre-integrated Power Solutions

Cummins Power Generation designs power systems to work together from the start through PowerCommand®. PowerCommand eliminates the need to combine an engine, alternator, controls and transfer switches from a variety of manufacturers, which means simpler installation and increased reliability. It is the first single-source power system to pre-integrate microprocessor-based power system equipment.


Alternative fuels such as landfill gas and bio gas can be burned to generate electric power, making use of an otherwise wasted source of valuable energy. Our low BTU-fueled gas generator sets burn landfill gas and a variety of other low-BTU fuels.

Prime Power

In places where utility power is unavailable, unreliable or very expensive, Cummins Power Generation has proven power systems to provide economical and clean baseload or prime power for industrial installations or municipalities.

Distributed Generation

Distributed generation (DG) means locating decentralized power plants close to power users. DG systems supply peaking power to a single large customer or add power to a regional transmission system to shore up weaknesses in local power delivery.

Cummins Power Generation provides a variety of DG power systems that help utilities defer expensive transmission upgrades and help large customers save money by reducing peak time power costs.

Power Management

If you are a large power user, managing your power use with onsite generators can add significantly to your bottom line. By reducing the risk of power outages and low power quality; and controlling time of day-related power charges; onsite generators become an important business management tool.
