Apex, NC (PRWEB) January 12, 2012
Progress Solar Solutions™, LLC (TM) will introduce a new Progress Solar / Wind hybrid light tower at the American Rental Show in New Orleans (Feb 5-8, 2012). This is the latest offering in the rapidly growing Progress SolarTM Series of Light Towers. These light towers are another option for clients interested in acquiring or renting portable outdoor lighting equipment. The Progress Solar Light Tower resembles a traditional portable diesel light tower but is powered 100% by free renewable energy instead of diesel fuel.
The Progress SolarTM Light Tower with Wind Generator (SLTW-800-HVR) is made in the U.S. (patent pending) and operates independent of diesel, gas or the electric grid eliminating the use of fossil fuels or generation of carbon emissions. The Solar / Wind (hybrid) light towers can be powered a number of ways. They are powered primarily by two on-board solar power generators as well as with additional power on cloudy days and at night through a wind generator housed above the LED flood lights. And for redundancy and as a backup, the large battery banks that store numerous days of lighting can always be charged via an onboard dual-bank AC power charger if ever needed.
The Progress Solar / Wind Light Tower is a rugged, mobile light system that provides high-intensity, bright white lighting on-demand, where and when you need it. It is equipped with high power generating Solar Modules housed on automated solar wings that can be optimally positioned toward the sun to maximize solar energy gain; a wind turbine at the top of the 33’ telescoping mast; four (4) solid-state LED flood lights with high lumen output; and a long-life Power Module with either flooded or AGM, no maintenance, sealed, deep-cycle batteries to store energy for use when needed at night or during inclimate weather. The light tower is fully adjustable from 12-30ft in height, able to tilt up/down and can rotate ~358 degrees. The solid-state LED flood lights provide a tremendous amount of light, minimize power requirements; provide instant-on/off with no flickering; are extremely reliable, vibration and shatter resistant; and designed to provide up to 5x longer run time between bulb changes than metal halide lights. The Solar/Light Control Module protects the system from over/under charging and the lights can be turned on/off automatically from a timer, at user-programmable time intervals or manually on-demand. The system is on a portable trailer customized or maximum functionality and convenience and can be easily towed to its destination.
